Amelie Mauresmo won a 1 million euro diamond-studded racket trophy on Sunday, beating Kim Clijsters 6-4, 7-6 (4) in the final of the Diamond Games.

The victory also spoiled Clijsters' farewell match before a massive home crowd of 14,500 at the Sports Palace. The 23-year-old Belgian has said she will retire at the end of the seaso.

Mauresmo won the tournament for the third time in a row, enough to keep the four kilograms (8.8 pounds) of gold and 1,702 diamonds, which goes to the first three-time winner in any five-year span. The world's third-ranked player was much more enterprising with her moves to the net while Clijsters, fourth in the rankings, never got her serve working.
