Elena Bovina of Russia outlasted Nathalie Dechy of France 6-2, 2-6, 7-5 and won the Pilot Pen tennis tournament Saturday. In winning her third WTA event, the seventh-seeded Bovina held up best in the heat, which at one point during the two-hour match reached 100 degrees on the court. ``It was very tough, and actually I gave everything I got here,'' Bovina said.
