Hingis wins 2nd title of year : Sunfeast Open

Hingis cruises to Kolkata title

Former world number one Martina Hingis continued her resurgence this year with a two-set win over Olga Poutchkova to win the Kolkata (Calcutta) Open.

The Swiss 25-year-old, playing in her fourth final since coming out of retirement last December, produced some magical touches in a comfortable win.

Poutchkova barely found a return as Hingis stormed through the first set.

And the five-time Grand Slam winner held off a second-set fightback to win her second title of the year 6-0 6-4.

It was the 42nd title of Hingis' career and it rarely looked in doubt.

Nineteen-year-old Poutchkova was clearly overawed in her first WTA final and even though she took a 3-1 lead in the second, Hingis turned the screw to seal a comfortable victory.
