Andy Murray was one match away from his 22nd career singles title with new coach Ivan Lendl in his corner and Kaia Kanepi won her second WTA title with a dominating performance over Daniela Hantuchova at the Brisbane International on Saturday.
Kanepi won all but one point in the first four games of the second set and went on to beat Hantuchova 6-2, 6-1 in the women's final to add to her 2010 tournament title at Palermo.
The 28-year-old Hantuchova had an abbreviated run into the Brisbane final when 13-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams withdrew from their scheduled quarterfinal after injuring her left ankle and Australian Open champion Kim Clijsters retired in the second set of their semifinal with a hip strain.
