Dubai:

Top seed Justine Henin has won her fourth Dubai Open title in five years after beating Amelie Mauresmo 6-4, 7-5 on Saturday. The victory saw Henin add to the Dubai titles she won in 2003, 2004 and 2006, and was her 30th career title. The World Number 2 took 1 hour and 42 minutes to beat Mauresmo in straight sets. The Frenchwoman was broken in the opening game but fought back to level the scores at 4-4. However, Henin proved just too good for Mauresmo, winning not only the first set but also wrapping up the match quickly. The Belgian has now won seven of her 13 meetings with Mauresmo. It was Mauresmo's second consecutive final, after she won in Antwerp last week.
