MASON, Ohio, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Kim Clijsters produced a remarkable comeback to beat Maria Sharapova 2-6 7-6 6-2 and win the Cincinnati Open on Sunday.
Sharapova had three championship points in the second set before a cloudburst led to a 74 minute stoppage, with the Russian just two points from victory.
After the break Clijsters came back and won the set 7-4 in the tiebreak.
The Belgian swept her way through the final set for her 38th WTA win and her fourth victory since returning to the sport last August following a two year maternity break.
