Strasbourg - Italian second seed Francesca Schiavone won her fifth WTA title and first since the 2010 French Open when she captured the Strasbourg clay court tournament with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Alize Cornet.It was the Italian veteran's eighth win in nine career meetings against the 66th-ranked French player."It's a great feeling and I want to keep going this way. I'm happy again. I'm feeling the sensation of fighting and feeling the pain, and enjoying my game again," said Schiavone.Cornet added: "Right now I'm disappointed, but Francesca was playing well the whole week, not even losing a set. My tennis is improving and coming back. It was only positives for me this week, and now I hope to have a good Roland Garros."Schiavone will be seeded 14 at the French Open, which starts in Paris on Sunday, and meets Japanese veteran Kimiko Date Krumm in the first round.Cornet faces Chinese 31st seed Zheng Jie in her first round tie.
