Rabat: Meghann Shaughnessy of the United States won her fourth career title Sunday, beating eighth-seeded Martina Sucha of Slovakia 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 on clay at the Grand Prix SAR. The unseeded American was appearing in her eighth final and first since Memphis, Tennessee in February 2005. ''This was a great tournament. Thanks to all the spectators for coming out,'' Shaughnessy said. ''It was my first time in Morocco and I will be coming back.'' After starting the year without a win in five straight tournaments, the former 11th-ranked player has won 14 of her last 20 matches. Sucha hadn't won consecutive matches on tour this year before this week. (AP)
