PATTAYA CITY, Thailand, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Henrieta Nagyova beat Lubomira Kurhajcova Sunday, 6-4, 6-2, in an all-Slovakian final to win the $110,000 Volvo Women's Open in Thailand.
Nagyova, 24, captured her first title since Warsaw in 2000 and ninth overall. She had been runner-up at three tournaments since her last triumph.
She earned $16,000 and has consistently found success at Pattaya City. In addition to her final showing here two years ago, she took home the winner's trophy in 1997 and reached the semifinals in '96 and 2000.
Nagyova advanced to the final after she beat top seed and local favorite Tamarine Tanasugarn.
Kurhajcova, a four-time winner on the ITF circuit, failed to claim her first WTA crown, and earned a $9,000 paycheck.
