Myskina eases to Calcutta victory
Anastasia Myskina
Russia's Anastasia Myskina beat Karolina Sprem of Croatia 6-2 6-2 to win the Calcutta Open on Sunday.

The 24-year-old Myskina, the top seed here, had too much class for her 20-year-old opponent.

The win, her 10th WTA singles title, will be particularly welcome for Myskina as she has struggled to find her best form this season.

"I badly wanted to win here as I have not won a title for some time," said Myskina, the 2004 French Open champion.

"She was stroking the ball well but lacked consistency."

Myskina, who was without a tournament victory in 2005, has slipped from second in the world to 12th over the last year.

For Sprem it was a third defeat in three final appearances on the WTA Tour.

"I made too many errors to give her a fight in the match," said 85th-ranked Sprem, who reached the quarter-finals at Wimbledon last year.
