Hantuchova rallies to win Thailand crown

Pattaya City, Thailand (SportsNetwork.com) - Slovakian Daniela Hantuchova fought back from a set down to beat Croatia's Ajla Tomljanovic 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 in Sunday's final at the Thailand Open.

The 31-year-old Hantuchova also recovered from dropping the first set in her semifinal win over Marina Erakovic of New Zealand. She became the first player to win the tournament three times after claiming back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012.

Hantuchova captured her seventh career WTA title and first since winning the Wimbledon tune-up in Birmingham during the summer of 2013.

Tomljanovic, 21, committed 10 double faults in her first career WTA final.
