Schiavone beats Vinci in Barcelona Open final

Schiavone beats Vinci in Barcelona Open final

Top-seeded Francesca Schiavone has beaten Italian compatriot Roberta Vinci 6-1, 6-1 to win the Barcelona Ladies Open.
Schiavone broke her friend and defending champion five times and saved all three break chances in Saturday's hour-long final.
Schiavone's third career WTA Tour title ended unseeded Vinci's 9-0 winning run in the tournament, including a win over Schiavone in last year's semifinals.
The pair will team up next week when Italy defends its Fed Cup title in a home semifinal against the Czech Republic.
