Nuria Llagostera Vives, who had to qualify for the main draw at the Copa Colsanitas Santander in Bogota, won it today by defeating Maria Emilia Salerni, 6-0, 6-4.
This is Llagostera Vives' second Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles title. She was off the tour most of 2006 because of a wrist injury. At 5' 1 1/2" tall, Llagostera Vives is, I think, the shortest woman on the tour. She has three doubles titles, and has been ranked as high as number 35 in the world.
