Anastasia Pavlychenkova won her final match of her WTA campaign, clinching the Kremlin Cup with a 6-4 5-7 6-1 triumph over Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu on home soil in Moscow.

Speaking exclusively to GiveMeSport, the Russian says she has enjoyed her celebrations and is now looking to prepare for the 2015 season, targeting January's Australia Open as the tournament to be fit for.

Pavlyuchenkova admits that her 2014 season hasn't been the best it could be, but is fully confident that she can build on her Kremlin Cup victory next campaign and climb the rankings.

"I couldn't have ended my season better than this, winning this title," she said.

"It's still a very busy week after the tournament but I'm trying to spend time with my family and friends too.

"I'm looking forward to flying out for my holidays and recovering for the next season. I need to be fresh and ready for hard work during my pre season!"
