Keren Shlomo win second ITF title

Israeli Keren Shlomo suffered a scare before overwhelming Misa Kinoshita of Japan in ITF tournament title.

New Delhi: Israeli Keren Shlomo suffered a scare before overwhelming Misa Kinoshita of Japan in a thrilling three-setter to notch up her second successive USD 10,000 ITF tournament title on Saturday.

Shlomo, seeded third, who came into the tournament winning the title at Hyderabad last week, beat Kinoshita 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 at the DLTA complex.
Kinoshita, who beat India`s Prerna Bhambri in the semifinal yesterday, played a better overall game to outwit Shlomo and managed to grab the first set.
But the Israeli got her act together and wrest the initiative in the next to bounce back in style, before clinching the decider to emerge victories.
