France's Pauline Parmentier won her second WTA title on Sunday, beating Czech qualifier Lucie Hradecka 6-4, 6-4 in the finals of the clay-court tournament.
The 53rd-world ranked Frenchwoman followed on from her success in the semi-finals where she eliminated top seed Agnes Szavay of Hungary in straight sets to lift her second title after Tashkent in 2007.
It was Parmentier's second WTA Tour title after winning in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, last year.
"I am very happy today, it was a perfect week," said Parmentier. "It was a very difficult week because of all of the rain, and because of the rain I had to play two matches yesterday, but when you have a tougher week like this, the victory is much bigger. Now I will enjoy two weeks of holiday. I just need to relax."
