With her back against the wall for second night in succession, No. 16 seed Kvitova came back from a set down to outlast fourth seed Garbine Muguruza 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the title clash.
Kvitova overcame an very bad start which saw her lose the first five games to triumph 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.
She was in trouble when Spain's Muguruza took a 5-0 lead in the first set. "I was a little insane in my mind and I was playing everywhere and not to the court", twice Wimbledon champion Kvitova said in a court-side interview.
"When I was down 3-1 I was really angry with myself and I tried to hit some winners".
It is the first time Kvitova has been ranked among the world's elite since a horrific knife attack at her home in December 2016 left her with an injured hand. She had to beat four players in the top 10 this week in Doha, including world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, to take the title. "I think if I would have got one of those break points, it would be different". The Doha victor Petra Kvitova earned 11 places to crack top 10 again. Of course, it's such a great achievement to be back there.

In total, she faced 11 break points, but only lost her serve in the first set.
Up next for Kvitova is world No.4 Muguruza, who enjoyed the day off after her semi-final opponent Simona Halep pulled out of the tournament with a right foot injury after her quarter-final win on Friday.
And Muguruza looked worn down when she sent a backhand into the net at the end of a mammoth baseline rally to give Kvitova the breakthrough, then receiving strapping on her knee in a medical timeout.
Two break-back points were staved off and, though Muguruza held to force Kvitova to serve the set out, she promptly did so, the clinching point met with a shriek of approval.
Yet she defied all expectations, completing rehabilitation and competing on the tour again after only six months, returning at last year's Roland Garros Championships.
