Svetlana Kuznetsova ended her four-year WTA title drought Sunday, beating Kurumi Nara of Japan 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 in the Citi Open in Washington, DC. The Russian is a two-time Major champion.
Nara is 22, and an excellent returner. She has one WTA title to her credit.
Kuznetsova smiled when asked about the drought: “It feels like it’s been too long.”
