SEOUL, South Korea -- Top-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska rallied from a set down on Sunday to beat Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-7 (6), 6-3, 6-4 and win the Korea Open.

Sunday's win was Radwanska's first since winning the Apia International in Sydney in January.

Radwanska, No. 4 in the world rankings, improved to 3-1 in head-to-head matches against the 32nd-ranked Pavlyuchenkova.
