Guangzhou: Unseeded Romanian Monica Niculescu clinched her second career title on Saturday with a 6-4, 6-0 win over French second seed Alize Cornet in the Guangzhou tournament.

Niculescu came back from 4-2 in the first set to take victory in tough humid conditions, adding the Chinese title to her maiden WTA trophy at Florianopolis in 2013.

"I was so happy to finish in the end because it was very hot and very humid, and I was very, very tired," said the 26-year-old Romanian.

"But to finish so strong was amazing for me. I have many emotions right now, but most of it is joy and confidence. It`s my second WTA title and that`s just an amazing feeling."
