MONTREAL, Aug. 13 (UPI) -- Fifth-seeded Petra Kvitova claimed her eighth career WTA Tour title Monday with a three-set win over Li Na in the final of the Rogers Cup.

The 22-year-old Czech needed 2 hours, 16 minutes to get past her Chinese opponent 7-5, 2-6, 6-3 on the hard courts at Uniprix Stadium, improving to 8-2 all-time in finals.

Last year's Wimbledon winner claimed a $385,000 grand prize with the triumph, her first of the year.

Li, who had bested Kvitova in semifinal match at the Australian open in January, fell to 5-8 in career finals.
