Cornet did not surrender a set in the tournament en route to her first championship since she swept Eugenie Bouchard to win Hobart in January, 2016.

"Two and a half years without a title," Cornet told afterward. "I’ve been through tough moments in these last two-and-a-half years, especially this last season was tough on me, so it means the world to me to have this title, to win here in Gstaad."

The 48th-ranked Frenchwoman won 49 percent of the points played on Minella's first serve in leveling her career finals record to 6-6.

Minella dug in and saved two match points trailing 5-6. Minella earned two set points in the tie break, but Cornet charged back to close her sixth title.

"I had an amazing week, it’s like everything was meant to be," Cornet said. "Everything was perfect this week and I was feeling great on the court, everything was going well. I was seed No.1 and I did the job, so it’s great satisfaction."
