Top-seeded Bojana Jovanovski earned her second career WTA title on Saturday by outlasting Olga Govortsova 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (3) in the final of the Tashkent Open.

Jovanovski was broken twice in the first set but bounced back by breaking her opponent three times in the second. Both players finished with five breaks of serve each in a match that lasted nearly 3 hours.

The 21-year-old Jovanovski also won a tournament in Baku last year, while the 113th-ranked Govortsova was looking for her first WTA title. She made her first Grand Slam appearance at this year's U.S. Open.
