PALERMO: Sara Errani captured the Palermo Open to become the first Italian to win four WTA titles in a season. Errani, who had already won claycourt events at Acapulco, Barcelona and Budapest this year, routed eighth-seed Barbora Zahlavova Strycova in the final, 6-1, 6-3. "I wasn't thinking about the record today, but I'm very happy to have it,” said Errani. “To win four tournaments in a season is incredible for me. It's a magic period. This year I've played some fantastic tennis on clay, losing only a few matches, but I really want to improve my results on hard and grass.
