Top seed Venus Williams struggled to find her best form but still managed to beat Russia's Maria Kirilenko 6-3 1-6 6-4 to win the Korea Open.
Venus committed 11 double-faults on her serve
The American, whose right calf was heavily bandaged, had few problems in the first set in Seoul.
But she lost her way in the second and was broken three times and double- faulted five times.
However, Williams broke world number 29 Kirilenko in the seventh game of the third and went on to claim the title.
It was difficult, but my strength got me through
It was the Wimbledon champion's third singles title of the year and she said: "Kirilenko showed a lot of energy today.
"Her game management was so great and it made for an interesting match.
"It was difficult, but my strength got me through and I was able to take the title."
