WTA - Palermo 2012 - Sara Errani def. Barbora Zahlavova Strycova in the Finals, 61 63.
Aga Radwanska was supposed to play in Palermo this year, yet had to withdraw prior to the start of the event with an upper respiratory illness. She expressed her regret in a statement.
“I wanted to compete in this beautiful tournament, which I played in 2007 in my first season as a pro,” Radwanska said. “During Wimbledon I was not in good physical condition, and London’s humidity made it worse. It was impossible for me to play in Palermo, but I hope to be here next year. The club is fantastic and has gotten more beautiful through the years.”
