Spain's Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino has won the WTA $125K Challenger event in Cali on Sunday. The Spaniard beat Colombian veteran Catalina Castaño  63 62 in just over an hour.

Arruabarrena-Vecino commented after her win, "I played a very confident match yesterday, and it was the same today - I felt very complete out there. Catalina was on the court much more this week and did very well in the doubles too, so maybe she was a little bit tired. I was definitely fresher. I knew it was going to be a difficult match so I was prepared, and I believe I did everything very well today. I played very well the whole week and I'm very happy how everything turned out this tournament."

33 year old Castano, who won the doubles title in Cali on Saturday, commented, "It was an excellent week for me. I'm a bit sad I didn't win today, but this result gives me a lot of hope for the season. I just have to take the good things from this week and hope I can continue like this. Lara played very well every point today - I'll go back and work hard again."

The expression “to endure the rally” is about those indeterminate moments of a rally where none of the players is leading.

The ability to endure the rally is fundamental when you play a “long rally”, because it offers you the chance to measure your opponent’s strong points and vulnerabilities, besides letting you position as best as possible for your next offensive shot.
