BANGKOK, Oct. 2 (UPI) -- World No. 4 Andy Murray dominated Donald Young in a straight-set victory Sunday in the title match at the PTT Thailand Open.

Murray won nearly three-quarters of the points in the match in winning 6-2, 6-0. He set off by winning the first four games and capped his third championship of 2011 by winning the last seven.

"He played well. I couldn't do much and it showed in the score," Young said after the match. "It was great play from him."

Murray dropped a total eight points over seven service games. Young managed only three points -- one on serve -- in the second set.

It was the first finals appearance for Young while Murray, who said he has his sights set on finishing the year with a No. 3 ranking, picked up his 19th career championship. He won earlier this year at Cincinnati and in London at the Queen's Club.

The first-place finish was worth $107,000 to Murray. Young collected $56,300 as runner-up and passed the $1 million mark in career earnings.
