The first final of the week was the doubles final of the Brasil Tennis Cup, which was played Friday.
Anabel Medina Garrigues and Yaroslava Shvedova defended their title at the International event.
The singles final took place Saturday morning - Garbiñe Muguruza taking on Klara Zakopalova.
Zakopalova fought back from 64 52 down, winning 11 games in a row to beat Muguruza, 46 75 60.
Zakopalova won the third WTA title of her career, but the first two came all the way back in 2005.
It was Zakopalova's third WTA final of the year - she was a runner-up in Hobart and Rio de Janeiro.
The next final was the doubles in Acapulco - Kristina Mladenovic and Galina Voskoboeva triumphed there.
And then, over on center court, one of America's rising stars played her very first WTA final.
Christina McHale pushed Dominika Cibulkova to the limits as well - two hours and 54 minutes.
But Cibulkova had been on the biggest stages before - three Premier titles, the Aussie Open final...
And she triumphed this time, 76(3) 46 64. It was her fourth WTA title - and first International title.
With the victory Cibulkova finally surpassed her career-high ranking of No.12 - she's No.11 now.
