World number 44 Venus Williams has won the 2014 edition of the Dubai championship for the third time.

The 33-year-old American beat Alize Cornet in straight sets to avenge her sister’s defeat in the semi-final of the championship in the hands of the French-woman on Friday.

Venus employed all the experience at her disposal to claim a 6-3 6-0 victory against the world number 26 in Saturday’s final.

The world number 44 last won the WTA tour title in October 2012, which. She won in Luxembourg.

Dubai seems to be a fertile ground for the seven-times Grand Slam champion – this win follows those in 2009 and 2010.

Cornet’s impressive victory over Serena in the last four means the Williams sisters have still not met in a final since 2009.

Key to the victory – her 45th on the WTA Tour – was the fact she converted five of eight break points against the Cornet serve, while her French opponent only took advantage of one out of six such opportunities to come her way.
