Strasbourg: Italian second seed Francesca Schiavone won her fifth WTA title and first since the 2010 French Open when she captured the Strasbourg claycourt tournament with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Alize Cornet.
It was the Italian veteran's eighth win in nine career meetings against the 66th-ranked French player.
"It's a great feeling and I want to keep going this way. I'm happy again. I'm feeling the sensation of fighting and feeling the pain, and enjoying my game again," said Schiavone.
