Polish top seed Agnieszka Radwanska came from behind to beat Russia's Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-7 (6) 6-3 6-4 in the final of the Korea Open in Seoul to bag her third WTA title of the year.

Radwanska's victory in the gruelling final, which lasted two hours and 45 minutes, also gave the 24-year-old world number four her 13th career title.

Pavlyuchenkova, who lost to Radwanska in the U.S. Open last month as well, came back after losing the first three games and saved four set points to eventually win the opening set in the tie-breaker.

Radwanska wrested back control after breaking the third-seeded Russian early in the second set and closed out the match with a break in the 10th game of the deciding set.
