Jelena Jankovic was celebrating lucky number 13 on Sunday as she beat Paula Ormaechea to win the Copa Claro Colsanitas title in Colombia for the 13th win of her career.

Top-seeded Jankovic made no mistake in dispatching Argentinian number one Ormaechea in the final, dropping just three games to win 6-1 6-2.

World number 198 Ormaechea has enjoyed a brilliant run to her first final in Bogota, but former world number one Jankovic was far too strong in the end.

Jankovic had only just scraped into the final as she was pushed all the way by Karin Knapp and forced to win a final set tie-breaker.

Ormaechea proved to be a much easier prospect though as Jankovic easily won the first meeting between the two with the Argentina maybe suffering from the nerves of appearing in her first WTA Tour final.
