Sunday's final featured Switzerland's Romina Oprandi and Spain's Maria-Teresa Torró-Flor contesting for their first ever WTA title. 

Oprandi upset top seed Daniela Hantuchova in the semifinals earlier on Saturday.  Torró-Flor took out fellow Spaniard Garbine Muguruza to reach the last stage.

Both players split the first two sets. Torró-Flor took a commanding 5-1 lead in the final set though Oprandi would rally to win a few more games.

Serving for the title again up 5-3, Torró-Flor closed out the 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 win.

Currently ranked No. 71 in the world, Torró-Flor previously won 11 ITF singles titles before claiming her first WTA title on Sunday. She is also the sixth player to win their maiden WTA title this season.
