Volandri titles in Italy
Palermo, Italy (Sports Network) - Sixth-seeded Italian Filippo Volandri notched his second career singles title with a straight-set win in Sunday's final at the $390,000 Palermo International tennis event.
Volandri registered a 6-4, 6-2 triumph over Russian Igor Andreev. On Saturday, the Italian posted identical straight-set victories in a quarterfinal and semifinal match.
Last year's Palermo runner-up to Czech Tomas Berdych, Volandri pocketed $53,000 for his work on Sunday.
Andreev claimed $31,000 as the runner-up.
