Halep wins Bucharest title

11:38 am on 14 July 2014

Home favourite Simona Halep beat Italian Roberta Vinci 6-1 6-3 to win the inaugural Bucharest Open on Sunday - the Romanian's second tennis title of the year.

The world number three needed little more than an hour to wrap up the final against the second-seeded Vinci, who did threaten a comeback when she led 2-0 at the start of the second set.

But Halep swept past her to march to the title - holding serve to love to close it out.
