Arvidsson captures another Memphis title



Memphis, TN (Sports Network) - Sofia Arvidsson downed fourth seed Marina Erakovic on Saturday to capture the $220,000 Memphis International tennis event title.

Arvidsson, who earned a 6-3, 6-4 victory on the indoor hardcourts at The Racquet Club of Memphis, also titled here in 2006 and was the event's runner-up two years ago.

The 28-year-old Arvidsson has now won two career WTA championships in four overall final appearances. She ousted Erakovic in 1 hour, 24 minutes. The two had met once previously on the WTA circuit, with Erakovic prevailing in straight sets last year in Stanford.

Erakovic, 23, had lost in her only previous final, which was in Quebec City last year.

Arvidsson collected $37,000 for her efforts.
