Jankovic ends trophy drought in Bogota

Jelena Jankovic has ended her long wait for a WTA Tour title with a crushing win in the Copa Claro Colsanitas final on Sunday.

The Serbian top seed took just 74 minutes to thump Argentine Paula Ormaechea 6-1 6-2 in the final in Bogota, Colombia.

Jankovic's victory gave her a 13th WTA Tour title and first since March 2010, when she clinched the crown at Indian Wells on hard court.

She had lost five straight finals since then, but the WTA International tournament on outdoor clay courts gave her the perfect opportunity to break the drought.

Frenchwoman Alize Cornet was the only other player in the draw ranked inside the top 50, and the second seed exited in the second round.

Ormaechea, ranked 198 in the world and playing her first WTA Tour final, was no match for Jankovic, who converted two of four break points in the first set and held serve comfortably throughout.

The second set proved to be more of the same as the world number 24 again broke twice to ease past the 20-year-old.
