World number two Iga Swiatek claimed her fifth title of the year with victory over Liudmila Samsonova in the China Open final.

The Pole added to her titles in Doha, Stuttgart, Roland Garros and Warsaw with a 6-2 6-2 victory in Beijing.

Swiatek, 22, did not face a break point in either set as Russia's world number 22 Samsonova struggled to cope.

She quickly wrapped up victory in just 69 minutes for her 16th career title.
