Indian Wells (United States) (AFP) - Italy's Flavia Pennetta routed world number three Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 6-1 on Sunday to win the Indian Wells WTA crown. Pennetta, 32, claimed the biggest title of her career, needing just one hour and 13 minutes to blow past Poland's second-seeded Radwanska, who was hobbled by a left leg injury. Pennetta's victims in the $12 million (8.6 million euros) combined WTA and ATP Masters tournament included world number two and top seed Li Na of China as well as former US Open champion Samantha Stosur. Since then Pennetta had battled through a dismal 2012 season in which she struggled with both a back and wrist injury, dropping as low as 166th in the world.
