Dubai, Feb 25: Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland won her eighth career WTA title when she defeated Julia Goerges of Germany 7-5, 6-4 in the Dubai Tennis Championships final on Saturday.


Radwanska will rise one place to a career-best No. 5 when the world rankings are updated on Monday.

The fifth-seeded Radwanska led in both sets but it took her almost two hours to overcome the unseeded Goerges.

The German rallied on her powerful forehand, but Radwanska patiently remained on the baseline to watch Goerges' unsuccessful forays to the net, rushing her shots and returning them long and wide.

Radwanska was set to rush to victory in the second set by pulling ahead 4-1, but the Pole faltered and let the German win three more games before wrapping up the match.
