Venus eases past Kuznetsova
Venus Williams
Venus Williams collected her second title in a row with a routine 6-1 6-4 victory over Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova in the J&S Cup final.

The second seed, who won the Family Circle Cup in April, is now on an 11-match winning streak.

Williams broke early in the first set before racing through it.

Though the American's errors allowed Kuznetsova a glimmer of hope in the second set, Williams eventually overpowered the fourth seed.

"The things I've been able to do the last couple of weeks have been great," said Williams.

"I think I've been able to force the issue and really get my movement back to the way it used to be before my injuries.

"I feel like I can get to any ball, and I know my opponent is feeling the pressure because I am getting to every ball."

Kuznetsova said: "It was a tough match. I missed so many easy balls that I don't usually do. I didn't serve well.

"But Venus played really well today. I think she has done a great job after being out for so long, to come back and be able to win two titles in a row."
