BARCELONA, Spain, April 30 (UPI) -- Roberta Vinci of Italy won the Barcelona Open Saturday by rallying to beat Lucie Hradecka in three sets.

Vinci lost the first set and went on to beat her Czech opponent 4-6, 6-2, 6-2.

"The key for me was to be aggressive and focused, and that's why I won today," said Vinci, who won 73 percent of her first-serve points.

Vinci had reached the finals for the third consecutive year with a come-from-behind win over Spain's Laura Pous-Tio.
