Italy's Francesca Schiavone won her eighth career title at the Bogota Open on Saturday (April 15) to move closer to a main draw place at the French Open in her final year on tour.
"Today was a disaster match", Schiavone said.
Schiavone, who earned a spot in this year's French Open by virtue of her victory, dispatched top-seeded Kiki Bertens and No. 3 seed Johanna Larsson to reach the final against Arruabarrena, a 2012 champion of this event. "I have always had very good performances on clay".
The Spaniard would break back on her next opportunity to get it back to 4-5, but Schiavone hit back strongly in the next game, converting her third break point to go one set up.
And Arruabarrena should be full of confidence as she looks to make it three wins from three in WTA finals, having come from 4-0 down in the decider to surge to victory.
Schiavone, the 2010 Roland Garros champion, has announced she will retire at the end of this season.

The news outlet also attributes the success so far of the console to a game tied with it: Zelda Breath of the Wild. This is the fifth month in a row that the PS4 has led the Xbox One console in sales within the US.
Schiavone saved all four, escaping 12 of 14 break points in the match, before closing out Arruabarrena in 95 minutes.
"It was too long since I won a title and I am very pleased to win again", she said.
Even for a Grand Slam titlist who played her first professional match over two decades ago, winning never gets old.
The 17-year old Vondrousova beat her Estonian opponent Anett Kontaveit, 6-4, 7-6 (6) in the championship match.
"It was a very good tournament for me here in Bogota".
And in case you weren't sure just how much Schiavone, at 36, still cares about the sport, just take a look at her reaction to watching her last victor sail by Arruabarrena.
