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 on Sunday.

Radwanska's victory in the gruelling final, which lasted two hours and 45 minutes, also gave the 24-year-old World No 4 her 13th career title.
