Italy's Roberta Vinci and Sara Errani won their 14th match in a row and their third title in a row with a three set win over second seeds Nadia Petrova and Katrina Srebotnik in the finals of the WTA Qatar Open in Doha on Sunday.

Errani and Vinci won 26 63 10-6 to avenge their loss to Petrova/ Srebotnik earlier in the year.

Errani commented after the win, "It was a similar match to yesterday's semifinals. In the first set we didn't start so well, but then from the second set we started to play much more aggressive, going to the net more and trying to put more pressure on them. After doing so well in the second set it was a bit strange to be down 4-0 in the super tie-break, but we started playing well again and are happy with the result."

Vinci commented, "It's another tournament and another victory, and we're so happy we could play another good week. It was a tough week, though - three of our matches went to super tie-breaks - and today we started so slow, but they played a really good first set and we knew we just had to start being more aggressive and focused. It wasn't an easy match, but we just played better at the end of it."

This was their 16th tite together as a pair. The duo will take a break now and will not play next week's WTA Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

However, in modern tennis it is not enough to simply slice the ball back into play on every shot. You need a topspin backhand with which to put pressure on your opponent and win points quickly.
