SINGAPORE (AP) Svetlana Kuznetsova snipped off part of her braid with scissors during a changeover before going on to beat defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska 7-5, 1-6, 7-5 Monday at the season-ending WTA Finals. The sheared hair remained on her chair for the rest of the match.

Trailing 2-1 and down a break in the third set, Kuznetsova, without the benefit of a mirror, took scissors to the back of her head and chopped away.

"It was bothering me a lot," said the Russian, who asked the umpire to have scissors brought to the court. "When I was hitting forehands, every time I would hit a good shot it would hit my eye."
