Cincinnati: China`s Li Na ended her 15-month title drought as she beat Germany`s Angelique Kerber 1-6, 6-3, 6-1 to win the Cincinnati Masters tennis event.

The 2011 French Open champion overcame an early setback to clinch a superb victory Sunday as she won 80 percent of her first-serve points in the third set, Xinhua reports.

"I wanted to win this title because this year I got in the final three times but could not cross the last hurdle. I was really hungry for this win," said Li Na.
