It was career title No. 45 and not even close to a Grand Slam championship. And it may have been the sweetest win in her career.

Venus Williams claimed her first tournament victory in two years with a relatively easy 6-3, 6-0 win over Alize Cornet to capture the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship. Williams had not played the Dubai tournament since 2010, but she leaves having extended her winning streak there to 15 matches.

WTATennis.com quoted the 33-year-old Williams as saying, “I have had a good week. Everything is falling together pretty much, is all I can say.”
