0

ROME: World number one Serena Williams warmed up for the defense of her French Open crown by cruising to her second straight Italian Open title on Sunday (Monday in Manila) with a 6-3, 6-0 win over Sara Errani of Italy. Errani had been looking to become the first Italian winner of the women’s event in 29 years. Williams, who faced little resistance from semi-finalist opponent Ana Ivanovic or Chinese qualifier Zhang Shuai in the quarters, expects to be given a tougher test at the French Open which starts on May 25.
