Share This Story
The 27-year-old Kuerten, who played in his third championship match of the season, collected his 19th career title. Earlier this year, Kuerten won the championship in Auckland. He also reached the final at Indian Wells and the semifinals at Costa Do Sauipe, Acapulco and Buenos Aires.
Kuerten, who played in St. Petersburg for the first time, improved to 3-0 against Sargsian. This was the first time that the two players have met since playing Hong Kong in 2000.
The 30-year-old Sargsian failed to collect his second-career title. He captured the Newport title in 1997.
