BRUSSELS, Oct 1 (Reuters) French Open runner-up Ana Ivanovic scooped her third title of the year after overcoming Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova 3-6 6-4 6-4 in the final of the Luxembourg Championships.
Ivanovic, who qualified for the season-ending WTA Championships earlier in the week, produced some blistering groundstrokes to claw back from 3-0 down in the second set against the fourth seed.
The Serbian bagged five successive games to frustrate Hantuchova and after levelling the match, she kept up the momentum in the third to seal victory yesterday.
The 19-year-old from Belgrade had triumphed in Berlin and Los Angeles earlier in the year.
''It was a very tough match. Daniela started off really well, playing aggressively and going for her shots. I struggled to find my rhythm,'' Ivanovic told reporters.
''I told myself when I was 3-0 down in the second set that I needed to be more aggressive. It was a riskier approach but better that way, and it worked for me.'' Reuters BJR DB0931
