Top-seeded Anna Smashnova defeated Colombia's Catalina Castano 6-2, 6-2 Sunday in the final of the Budapest Grand Prix. It was the 11th career victory for the 29-year-old Israeli and her second of the year. She also won two weeks ago in Modena, Italy. Smashnova broke Castano's serve at love to go up 2-1 in the first set, which she won thanks mainly to her greater patience in the long rallies.
