Dementieva takes 3rd title of year in Luxembourg

Top-seeded Elena Dementieva beat Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark to win her third title of the year at the Fortis Championships on Sunday.
Olympic champion Dementieva lost the first set to the 18-year-old Dane before winning on a tie-break 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (4).
Dementieva, 27, also won her last match against Wozniacki at the Beijing Olympics where she won gold for Russia.
The Luxembourg title, _ a US$225,000 (euro179,000) WTA Tour event on hard indoor courts _ adds to her two other 2008 wins at the Beijing Olympics in August and the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships in March.
Dementieva is fifth in the world rankings.
