LINZ, Austria, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- Top-seeded Ana Ivanovic swept to a straight-set win over Vera Zvonareva Sunday in the championship match of the Generali Ladies Linz tournament in Austria.

The Serbian star, winner of the French Open this year and formerly ranked No. 1 in the world, earned a $95,500 payday by downing the Russian player 6-2, 6-1.

"Every final is a new experience and winning a title is always special," Ivanovic said.

Zvonareva committed seven double-faults in the match.

"I'm really disappointed with how I played today," Zvonareva said. " I had no concentration at any stage of the match.
