Guangzhou, Seoul Final: Zhang claims first title

Guangzhou final:

Zhang Shuai def. Vania King 7-6(1) 6-1

Alas, King couldn't escape from the hole she dug herself in this time. The queen of comebacks, she ran out of gas after losing the first set and was promptly stomped over by wildcard entry, Zhang Shuai. The Chinese hasn't dropped a set in this tournament, and will look to improve on her mediocre results after making a small impact a few years ago. Zhang has a good game when on and she seems to be piecing it together now. For King, she will make her re-entry into the top 100, so she will be playing main draws for quite sometime. Well done to both players.

Seoul final:

Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova

Pavlyuchenkova's impressive record in smaller events cannot stop the Radwanska train from clinching this title. The Pole has been barely losing games all week, and she will no doubt exploit the Russian's lack of movement. Seems like a good idea for Agnieszka, collect some impressive appearance fees and gain an easy title. Still, I would like to see her concentrate on playing bigger events, where she often gets blown away by an inspired opponent.

Pick: Radwanska in 2 sets
