NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Simona Halep doesnt speak perfect English, but she knew what words to use when describing her game at the New Haven Open. "I played very beautiful tennis today," Halep said. "I was enjoying every moment." The 21-year-old Romanian dominated defending champion Petra Kvitova 6-2, 6-2 Saturday to win the final WTA tuneup for next weeks U.S. Open. Halep earned her fourth career win, but her first in a premiere tournament. All have come since June. The 23rd-ranked player improved to 29-5 in her last 34 matches (31-5 counting qualifying matches). "Im just enjoying every match," she said. "I try my best and Im more aggressive now. I hit the ball stronger than before. I just take pleasure and Im relaxed on court." She broke the 2011 Wimbledon champion in four consecutive service games. The first break gave her a 3-2 lead in the first set. The fourth put her up 3-0 in the second as she took control of the match. Kvitova had a chance to take charge early in match, up 2-1 and 15-40 on Haleps serve. But Halep won the next three points to save that game. She was down 40-30 in the next game before getting her first service break when Kvitova sent a cross-court forehand just wide. "She played just really good shots in that moment," Kvitova said. "That was turning the match around, I think." The Czech star never recovered. Halep didnt give her a chance, committing just four unforced errors in the first set and one in the second set. She put in 74 per cent of her first serves and won 78 per cent of them. She converted four of her five break points. The ninth-ranked Kvitova was 0-for-4 on her break chances. She had 25 unforced errors and won just 32 of the matchs 90 points. Halep closed the match by holding Kvitova without a point in the final game, serving an ace, dropping her racket and throwing her arms into the air. "Everything is perfect here," she said. The victory will move her to No. 19 when the rankings are released on Monday. Her run through New Haven also included victories over Daniela Hantuchova, Carla Suarez Navarro, Ekaterina Makarova and four-time New Haven champion Caroline Wozniacki. Halep has played in the U.S. Open three times, making it to the second round twice. She hopes to do better this time. "I think I will play good there also," she said. "I just want to be relaxed because its good feeling now, good moment for me. I want just to live this great moment." She took home $117,000 along with the trophy. Kvitova, who earned $62,300, was trying to win the same tournament in consecutive years for the first time in her career. "It was first time for me to defend a title and be in the final," she said. "Thats a good sign actually for me. I will try to take the positive things from this tournament because it was great matches for me." The tournament, which began as a mens event in 1990, faces an uncertain future. Its five biggest sponsors are in the final year of their three-year deals. Attendance has been steadily declining. Just 45,796 fans attended this week, down from 76,480 in 2010, the last year the ATP players were also here, and 53,004 a year ago. But Anne Worcester, the tournaments director, said ticket revenue actually increased over last year, and she is optimistic sponsorship deals will be finalized to keep the event in New Haven.

The White Sox took two of three from the AL West leaders, giving them eight victories in their last nine games. Josh Phegley went deep after hitting the winning single in the ninth inning the previous night. John Danks (4-10) outpitched Matt Garza (3-2), allowing two runs over six innings for his second straight win. Garcia, a bright spot in a miserable season for Chicago, crashed into the right-field fence while trying to bring in a tying two-run homer by Jeff Baker that barely cleared the wall in the fourth. Acquired from Detroit in last months three-team deal that sent Jake Peavy to Boston, Garcia banged his head and shoulder. He stayed down for a few moments and was tended to by a trainer and manager Robin Ventura before walking gingerly off the field. Jordan Danks replaced him and gave the White Sox a 3-2 lead with a solo drive to right in the bottom half. According to information supplied to the White Sox by the Elias Sports Bureau, it was the first time a player has supported his brother with a homer since the Kansas City Athletics Billy Shantz did it for Bobby Shantz on June 3, 1955. Third baseman Jeff Keppinger preserved the lead in the fifth when he lunged to snag Adrian Beltres liner and stepped on the bag with runners on the corners to end the threat. Adam Dunn made it 4-2 in the sixth with an RBI single after Alexei Ramirez doubled, and Phegley bumped the lead to three with his drive in the seventh after Matt Linndstrom escaped a bases-loaded jam.dddddddddddd. Lindstrom got Beltre to hit into a double play after Ramirez booted Ian Kinslers grounder to shortstop for his career-high 21st error. Nate Jones pitched a pitched a scoreless eighth and Addison Reed finished for his 35th save in 40 chances. After pitching eight scoreless innings against Kansas City last week, John Danks gave up eight hits and struck out five while walking one in this one. Garza had another shaky outing for the Rangers, allowing five runs -- four earned -- and seven hits over seven innings. Hes allowed at least four runs in five straight starts. NOTES: The Rangers held OF Leonys Martin out of the lineup after he sprained his right ankle the previous night. He was injured in a collision with left fielder David Murphy chasing Paul Konerkos fly to centre and left that game, but he was optimistic he would be able to play Monday at Seattle. ... Rangers manager Ron Washington said RHP Yu Darvish was fine after experiencing cramps in his calves during the seventh inning the previous night. Washington attributed the symptoms to dehydration. ... Garcia struck out in his lone at-bat, bringing his 11-game hitting streak to an end. ... White Sox bench coach Mark Parent was ejected during the pregame lineup exchange by crew chief and second base umpire Jerry Layne. ... The White Sox open a three-game series against Houston on Monday, with RHP Andre Rienzo (1-0, 3.56 ERA) starting for Chicago against LHP Brett Oberholtzer (3-1, 2.91 ERA).
