ACAPULCO, Mexico, March 2 (UPI) -- Defending champion Sara Errani of Italy protected her Acapulco title Saturday, dispatching Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro in the final of the Mexican Open.

The top-seeded Errani bested No. 2 Suarez Navarro 6-0, 6-4 in the 1-hour, 35-minute contest, taking advantage of four double faults en route to the clay-court win.

It was the seventh career title and first of the year for the eighth-ranked Italian, who was coming off a second-place finish in last week's event at Dubai.

Navarro, meanwhile, fell in her first title match appearance this season.
