Graeme Dott won the title of the 2007 China open snooker tournament after beating Jamie Cope 9-5 here on Sunday.

The Scot dominated the final as Cope looked jaded after last night's gruelling semi-final against Barry Hawkins.

Dott won six of the eight frames in the first session for a 6-2 lead in the best-of-17-frame final.

"Thanks to the fans support, I did really well at start. Cope was not in a good form," said Dott.

Dott put together breaks of 72, 60, 70 and 95 to open a four-frame advantage and leave himself needing three more to take the title.

He took the first frame 71-46 before Cope struck back with a break of 65 to level the match.

Cope responded well after Dott had won the third frame, tying up the match at 2-2 with a run of 97.

"I tried, but it did not work. He controlled the pace from the very beginning," said Cope.

    However, Dott won the next with breaks of 72 and 60 before taking advantage of a mistake by his opponent to open a 4-2 lead.

    The 29-year-old Dott lost momentum when the match resumed as Cope trailed back 6-5 after runs of 91, 77 and 46.

    "I did not lose my confidence at that moment, and I am sure the cup will be mine," added Dott.

    Dott proved his superb form in the tournament after outplaying cope in the last three breaks after snatching 124, 120 and 64 points.

    This is the first time these two have met in professional competition.
