Throughout the week, Yvonne Meusburger was wowing the crowds with some spectacular play...
Austria's No.1 singles player, Meusburger made it through to the final without dropping a set.
In that final she took on another surprise package, fellow unseeded player Andrea Hlavackova.
But Meusburger's pattern continued as she won the championship match in straight sets again, 75 62.
Meusburger had never won a WTA title of any kind - what better place to do it than here, at home?
Meusburger was greeted on court by her very proud mom, Hedy.
Going into this week, Meusburger was Austria's only player in the Top 100 in singles, at No.86.
She is still Austria's only Top 100 player in singles, but is now all the way at No.58 in the world.
A smiling Meusburger did the traditional champion's photo shoot in front of a beautiful waterfall.
Earlier, Austria's No.1 doubles player, Sandra Klemenschits, won the doubles with Andreja Klepac.
Klemenschits, who has overcome so much in her life, won her very first WTA title of any kind.
It was in fact a first WTA title of any kind for Klemenschits' partner, Klepac, as well.
