Simona Halep collected her second consecutive Madrid Open title Saturday, defeating Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 6-7 (5), 6-2.

Saturday’s victory marks the 15th WTA title of Halep’s career, and is the first time the 25-year-old successfully defended a title.

“I just feel great here at this tournament. Even if I had two very tough matches, I feel good,” Halep told Matt Cronin of TENNIS.com. “I feel confident here on these courts. I feel that I move well. The clay is very good.”

It’s the first tournament Halep has won since last July when she defeated Madison Keys to win the Canadian Open.
