"In a final everybody wants to win, so the nerves kick in a lot - I'm just happy I could calm myself down in the last two games," Hercog said.
"It was a lot of fighting today and a lot of ups and downs, and I'm very happy to win. Second year in a row is amazing - to be invincible here for two years is unbelievable. Bastad has some kind of magic power for me, I guess."
Johansson won the first seven games of the match before Hercog took the second set. The Slovenian took 5-1 lead in the third set but allowed Johansson to level at 5-all, however she managed to turn the tide in her favour in the dying stages and emerged victorious.
"In the first set I felt so good and played so well, but then I started to make some mistakes and she started playing much heavier and deeper," Johansson rued later. "In the end it was better again but I couldn't finish it - I should have won."
