There were kids clinics throughout the week at the XXVI Italiacom Open. Who's conducting this one?
It's Dinah Pfizenmaier, who made her first WTA quarterfinal and is now on the brink of the Top 100.
Meanwhile, Roberta Vinci was keeping her hometown fans happy by signing autographs for them all.
Vinci is Italy's No.2 player, ranked No.11 - Sara Errani is Italy's No.1 player, sitting at No.6.
But the Italian No.2 was about to bring out all of her tricks against her countrywoman in the final.
After dropping the first two games of the final, Vinci won six of seven to win the first set, 6-3.
Errani retaliated in the second set, storming out to 5-1 and eventually tucking it away, 6-3.
But Vinci won the first four games of the third set and eventually put the match away, 63 36 63.
Vinci had lost to Errani in their last five meetings, not even winning a set in any of those matches.
Best friends, co-World No.1 doubles players - needless to say, the result was emotional for both.
Vinci won the ninth WTA title of her career and is now an amazing 9-1 in her career in WTA finals.
Vinci's win was also her 11th Top 10 win - is the World No.11 about to break the elite herself?
