Hsieh wins Japan Open tennis title

AFP,  HIROSHIMA: Taiwan's Hsieh Su-Wei trounced American qualifier Amanda Anisimova 6-2,6-2 to capture the Japan Women's Open on Sunday.

The second seed had too much experience on the big points as she dashed her teenage opponent's hopes of claiming a maiden WTA title in Hiroshima.

Anisimova, who only turned 17 two weeks ago, suffered from stage fright in her first final on the women's tour, committing 23 unforced errors.

Hsieh, 32, showed far more composure as she rolled to her third career singles title following victories at Kuala Lumpur and Guangzhou in 2012.
