Schiavone wins in Barcelona

9:49 am on 18 April 2010

Francesca Schiavone has thrashed fellow Italian tennis player Roberta Vinci 6-1 6-1 in the final of the Barcelona Open women's singles tournament.

It's the third career WTA win for Schiavone, who was beaten in the semi-finals in Auckland in January by eventual winner, her good friend Flavia Pennetta, also of Italy.

Schiavone took less than an hour to dispose of Vinci in the lopsided affair.
