Pennetta cruises to Palermo championship

PALERMO, Italy, July 19 (UPI) -- Italian Flavia Pennetta briskly whipped countrywoman Sara Errani in straight sets Sunday for the championship of the Palermo International in Italy.

Pennetta, the top seed, won 6-1, 6-2 in a match that lasted 71 minutes. She did not drop a set in the entire tournament.

"I'm really happy about the final today," Pennetta said. "I lost to Sara (in the semifinals) last year in a very tough match, so when I was going on the court today I was very focused and knew what I had to do to beat someone like her -- to keep my mistakes down."
