Seoul: Rising star Karolina Pliskova earned her second career title with a 6-3, 6-7 (5/7), 6-2 victory over America`s Varvara Lepchenko in the WTA Korea Open final Sunday.

The 22-year-old saw her one-set lead evaporate when first-time finalist Lepchenko took a tight second set to level the match.

But 32nd-ranked Pliskova stormed to a 4-0 lead in the final set to lift a trophy for the second time in Asia after she won in Kuala Lumpur last year.

Pliskova beat Russia`s Maria Kirilenko on her way to the final while Lepchenko stunned defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska.
