Beijing, China - Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska outlasted ninth-seeded German Andrea Petkovic 7-5, 0-6, 6-4 to win the title at the China Open on Sunday.

The 11th-seeded Radwanska not only captured her second event in as many weeks and a first prize of $775,000, but also moved to No. 10 in the world rankings. The 22-year-old has gone 24-4 since Wimbledon, winning titles at Carlsbad and Tokyo last Saturday.

Radwanska improved to 7-2 all-time in WTA finals, while maintaining an unblemished record in five meetings with Petkovic.

Petkovic was bidding for her third career title.
