Eastbourne: Svetlana Kuznetsova produced an impressive comeback to win the Hastings Direct International at Eastbourne on Saturday. The Russian beat Slovakian wild card Daniela Hantuchova 2-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 in the final, to claim her first title of the year. For the second-seeded Kuznetsova, who was a Wimbledon quarter-finalist last year, it was her first victory in four final appearances this year. The 18-year-old's title win was the third by a Russian woman in as many weeks. Anastasia Myskina won the French Open and Maria Sharapova won last week's grass-court tournament in Birmingham, England.
