Francesca Schiavone was all smiles after capturing her fifth career title at the Internationaux de Strasbourg.
Her 64 64 defeat dropped Alizé Cornet to 1-3 in finals and 1-8 against Francesca Schiavone.
Francesca Schiavone got to hold a winner's trophy for the first time since her 2010 French Open triumph.
Four of Francesca Schiavone's five career WTA titles have come on clay.
Francesca Schiavone did not lose a set all week and dropped just nine games in her first three rounds.
Olga Govortsova and Klaudia Jans-Ignacik edged Natalie Grandin and Vladimira Uhlirova for their first title as a duo.
This was the seventh time in 2012 the Top 2 seeded teams met in a doubles final but the first that the No.2 seeds won.
Klaudia Jans-Ignacik now has two doubles titles to her name, and Olga Govortsova has eight.
