In the Hana Bank Korea Open final, No. 2 seed Ekaterina Alexandrova defeated No. 1 seed Jelena Ostapenko 7-6(4), 6-0 to win her second Hologic WTA Tour title of 2022 and third overall.
The top two seeds faced off in the final for the second time this year, and, just as in St. Petersburg in February, where Anett Kontaveit defeated Maria Sakkari, the No. 2 seed prevailed. Alexandrova saved a set point serving at 5-6 in the first set after coming back from a break down three times, but she recorded her sixth bagel of 2022 in the second set.
Alexandrova rose to 3-2 in overall tour-level finals after winning the trophies in Shenzhen 2020 and's-Hertogenbosch 2022. The 27-year-old increased her advantage over Ostapenko in their most recent meeting to 5-2. Seoul was also the site of one of those victories and the only other game played in the series on outdoor hard courts.
