Top-seeded Sara Errani of Italy won her third WTA title this year by defeating Elena Vesnina of Russia 7-5, 6-4 Saturday in the Budapest Grand Prix final.

Unseeded Vesnina opened the match with a service break and led 4-1. However, Errani began to apply heavy forehands with spin that earned her four games in a row to take the first set.

In the second, Errani was 5-2 up before Vesnina regained her focus and charged back to within one point of evening the score. Instead, Errani earned her fifth career title on the WTA tour.
