It took two hours before 30-year-old Svetlana Kuznetsova, shook off Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland 7-5, 6-3. Kuznetsova, the 2006 champion in Key Biscayne, is ranked No. 19 and was not considered a favorite coming into the tournament. In fact, she is the lowest-ranked finalist since No. 38 Kim Clijsters won the title in 2005.
