Krasnoroutskaya's Run Ended

TORONTO -- World No. 3 Justine Henin-Hardenne romped to a 6-1, 6-0 victory over unseeded Russian teenager Lina Krasnoroutskaya in the final of the $1.3 million Canadian Open on Sunday.

It was the Belgian's sixth title of the year, putting her level with compatriot and world No. 1 Kim Clijsters.

Clijsters was beaten by Krasnoroutskaya on Thursday when the tournament was delayed by the largest blackout to hit the northeastern United States and Canada.

Henin-Hardenne broke serve in the opening game to set the tone, then held to go up 2-0.

The 19-year-old Russian came to life in the third game, fighting back from triple break point to win.

But second seed Henin-Hardenne was relentless, breaking serve in the fifth and seventh games to take the set in 25 minutes.

With Krasnoroutskaya misfiring repeatedly, the Belgian broke in the second game of the second set.

Game 3, however, went to deuce six times with the Russian almost breaking back and finishing on Henin-Hardenne's ninth ace of the afternoon.

"I didn't know what to expect," the champion said. "She was playing great tennis this week, but I knew she would be a little bit tired and nervous in her first final."

Krasnoroutskaya said she did not match up to Henin-Hardenne.

"It was really hard for me to play against Justine," she said. "She has a style of tennis that I don't like to play against, lots of top spin, and she keeps you back all the time.

"I'm a little bit disappointed because the week could have ended a little bit better. But I can't change anything that happened, and I will live with it," she added.

Henin-Hardenne now heads for the U.S. Open, where she is among the favorites. Her previous wins this year were at the Dubai Open, Family Circle Cup, German Open, French Open -- her first grand slam -- and Acura Classic.

Crowd favorite Martina Navratilova and Russia's Svetlena Kuznetsova defeated Maria Vento-Kabchi and Angelique Widjaja 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 in the doubles final. It was Navratilova's seventh Canadian title, three of them in singles.
