At the start of the week we were bigging up the possibility of another Italian champion in Barcelona and it may happen but it won't be any of the three players we were thinking about !

Sara Errani has thoroughly outshone her more illustrious compatriots this week to reach the Barcelona final without even dropping a set. While former French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, Flavia Pennetta and two-time champion Roberta Vinci were all packing their bags before the quarters, Errani has been blazing a trail through the bottom half of the draw.

After destroying second seed Julia Goerges 6-0, 6-3 in the quarters (and remember, Goerges won a WTA Premier title on clay last year) before routing Carla Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-2 on her home turf in the semis, you'd be hard pressed not to back her to win the title.

Third seed Cibulkova had some tough battles earlier in the week but she's come into form over the past two days, double bagelling qualifier Yuliya Beygelzimer in the final two sets of their clash before crushing Sorana Cirstea 6-1, 6-1 in Saturday's semis.

They've met many times before and Cibulkova leads 4-2 on the head-to-head, winning both their clashes in 2011 but then again, Errani is playing exceptionally well this week.

Prediction: Errani in two.
