Rybarikova routs Pavlyuchenkova for DC title



Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova rolled to a 6-1, 6-1 victory Saturday night over top-seeded Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova to capture the championship at the $220,000 Citi Open.

Rybarikova picked up her third career title by winning an astounding 95 percent (20-of-21) of her first-service points during the 65-minute rout. She had previous championships in Birmingham in 2009 and in Memphis last year, with her latest triumph netting her $37,000.

"I was thinking all the time, just to play my game, feel relaxed," Rybarikova said. "I played very good today."

Pavlyuchenkova, who was in her first final of the year, was searching for her fourth career WTA singles title.
