BALI, Indonesia, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Ana Ivanovic repeated as the winner of the WTA's Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions with a quick straight-set win Sunday over Anabel Medina Garrigues.

Ivanovic, who marked her 24th birthday Sunday, was masterful in a 6-3, 6-0 victory over Medina Garrigues in the final match of the tournament in Indonesia. It was her 11th career title but first since last year's Tournament of Champions.

She dropped just eight points over eight service games versus Medina Garrigues and just one in her three games of the second set.

Ivanovic managed a break in the first set, which was relatively close, but raced away in the second set. She won nearly 80 percent of the points in the second set.

Ivanovic picked up $210,000 along with the Tournament of Champions title. Medina Garrigues, who won twice earlier this year, feel to 11-7 in tournament finals.

The Tournament of Champions is the final event on the WTA 2011 calendar. The next women's tennis tournaments are the week of Jan. 2 at Brisbane, Australia, and Auckland, New Zealand.
