There were many, many special moments in Sofia, from the WTA stars walking out onto the court...
To fans and competition winners getting the chance to do the coin toss with the players...
And, of course, all of those players showing their stuff - including Bulgarian No.1 Tsvetana Pironkova.
On-court coaching had a strong presence, helping the players get the very best out of their game.
Elena Vesnina had a great week - and she was wtatennis.com's resident blogger the whole way.
Sam Stosur kept her fantastic fall season going, going all the way to the final at the tournament.
The only player who did better than Stosur was Simona Halep - she would go all the way to the title.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and all the WTA stars signed balls for the fans after their victories.
And that wasn't all - the fans enjoyed draws, autograph sessions and off-court appearances all week.
The fans certainly had a great time at the Garanti Koza WTA Tournament Of Champions...
And so did the media - the elite eight delighted the press all week long in the press room.
At the end of it all, though, it was Halep who became the face of the tournament - and the World No.11.
