CALCUTTA, India -- Fourth-seeded Maria Kirilenko of Russia won the WTA Tour's Sunfeast Open title, defeating Mariya Koryttseva of Ukraine 6-0, 6-2 in the final Sunday.

World No. 35 Kirilenko faced no difficulty in outplaying an erratic rival to clinch her third WTA Tour singles title.

"It's been a great week. I didn't expect the final to be so easy," said Kirilenko, whose last singles title win was in 2005.

The 164th-ranked Koryttseva, a first-time singles finalist, was broken on three successive serves of the opening set, but started strongly in the second set to lead 2-0 after breaking Kirilenko in the first game.

Kirilenko then took six straight points to dash Koryttseva's hopes.

"I made too many errors and failed to be competitive," Koryttseva said.
