Three-time Olympic champion Kerri Walsh Jennings won the AVP Manhattan Beach Open for the record seventh time Sunday.

The former Stanford star and April Ross led 19-21, 21-13, 9-0 when Lauren Fendrick and Brooke Sweat were forced to retire after Sweat sustained a back injury.

Walsh Jennings, who turned 36 on Friday, won her 70th AVP title and 121st title worldwide. The tournament, in its 55th year, is the longest-running event in pro beach volleyball.

"The more I play the sport, the more I realize the significance of this event. It's a huge one," Walsh Jennings said.

Phil Dalhausser and Sean Rosenthal defeated Theo Brunner and Todd Rogers 21-17, 21-14 in the men's final.
