PALERMO, Italy, July 14 (UPI) -- Roberta Vinci ended a five-match losing streak against fellow Italian Sara Errani Sunday, besting her in three sets to win the Italiacom Open.

The 30-year-old used seven aces to improve to 9-1 in career singles finals while notching her second 2013 title in the 2-hour, 11-minute affair.

Errani, meanwhile, committed six double faults in the loss.
