NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Top-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska completed a dominating week at the Connecticut Open on Sunday, beating Elina Svitolina 6-1, 7-6 (3) in the final, then spraying her coaches and friends with champagne.Radwanska, of Poland, didnt drop a set during the tournament, her 19th WTA championship. She took control of the final from the start, winning 20 of the first 27 points, jumping out to a 5-0 lead.She ran Svitolina all over the court, chasing down shots and placing her own with pinpoint accuracy. Svitolina, a 21-year-old Ukrainian, held off two set points in the sixth game, but Radwanska was able to serve out the set in 29 minutes.I was really feeling good this week, Radwanska said. Everything was working. I was feeling very confident on that court.The second set was much closer. It included three service breaks for each player and a 37-shot rally in the ninth game. Radwanska broke serve in that game to go up 5-4 and seemed to be in control, especially after Svitolina turned her ankle chasing a lob shot.But the 10th seed rallied, breaking back and going up 6-5. Radwanska saved two set points to force the tiebreaker and then took five of the last six points to win it.Svitolina committed 36 unforced errors, including a backhand into the net to end the match.Set points, they come and go in five seconds, Svitolina said. She served two big serves. She placed it really well.Radwanska had never before made it past the quarterfinals in New Haven, but she had a relatively easy trip this year that included a first-round bye and straight-set wins over Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia, lucky loser Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium and two-time champion Petra Kvitova, whom she beat 6-1, 6-1 in the semifinals.She becomes the first top seed to win since Caroline Wozniacki did it in 2011. The title is Radwanskas second this season -- she took the Shenzhen Open in China in January.She takes home just over $130,000 for winning in Connecticut, but she also earned enough points to clinch the U.S. Open Series bonus challenge. That means a chance for up to an extra $1 million, depending on her finish in New York next week, where she will be the No. 4 seed.So now its everything in my power to do good in the US Open, she said with a big grin. It will be worth it, right?Svitolina, who beat Serena Williams in the third round at the Olympics, is now 4-1 in WTA finals, but this was her first at a Premier event. She was playing this tournament for the fourth time and had never before made it out of the first round.She said it was a disappointing first set but an otherwise encouraging week.There is no time to be sad because US Open is just on Monday, she said.

TOKYO -- International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach expressed willingness Tuesday to work with Tokyo officials to try to reduce spiraling cost estimates for the 2020 Summer Games.Bach arrived in Japan amid growing tension between Olympic organizers and recently elected Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike, who is pushing to cut costs. Bach declined to discuss specific proposals, saying he knew about them only from media reports.The Tokyo metropolitan government will finalize its internal study, then well discuss it with the other stakeholders ... and then I am confident that you will see a significant reduction in the cost compared to what we have seen so far from the press, Bach told reporters after a 40-minute televised meeting with Koike.After her election at the end of July, Koike convened a panel of independent experts to review Olympic venues and costs.The panels most drastic proposal has been to suggest moving the rowing and canoeing venue to northern Japan, after the estimated cost for the planned site rose to seven times more than the initial estimate.The local organizing committee in Tokyo has objected to the possible change, arguing the competition should remain at the planned Sea Forest Waterway.ddddddddddddThe committee said the existing facility that Koike proposes using in Miyagi prefecture lacks infrastructure and accommodation for spectators and will be inconvenient for athletes.Tokyo organizers also said the final construction cost for the Sea Forest Waterway will likely be lower than estimated, while additional costs for transportation, security and infrastructure to move the events to Miyagi would add up.Already, the venues for basketball, taekwondo and cycling have been moved outside of Tokyo to reduce costs by using existing facilities. Cycling was moved to Izu, about 90 miles southwest of the capital.Tokyo won the right to host the Games in 2013 by promising a compact bid with 28 of the 31 competition venues within a 5-mile radius of the Olympic Village. Originally, only shooting, modern pentathlon and one soccer venue were to be outside the radius.
