Dulko wins Acapulco title
Argentina's Gisela Dulko survived a late fightback from Arantxa Parra Santonja to beat the Spaniard 6-3 7-6(5) and win the Acapulco title.
Dulko looked firmly in control with the scoreline 6-3 5-1 in her favour before Parra Santonja won five games in a row.
The Spaniard even enjoyed three set points at 6-5 to level the match but fourth-seeded Dulko won eight straight points to force the tie-break and take a 3-0 lead before closing the match out.
"Finals are always special and we were both nervous in the first set," said Dulko, who now has four WTA titles to her name. "But after that I was playing much better.
"All of a sudden I started to get a bit nervous again and Arantxa started playing so well. I was three set points down.
"At the end I ended up winning, so I'm really happy.
"I love this tournament but I was always struggling here. I felt great this week though, on and off the court. I couldn't go to the beach too much though, so I'll try to do that tomorrow morning before I leave."
