Players who's first ever title was at a Tier 1?

When was the last time a player won their first ever title on WTA at a Tier 1?

I can't remember the last player to achieve this? Was there any players who won a grand slam as their first title?

Daniela Hantuchova won Indian Wells for her first title. Indian Wells wins were her first two titles actually

i dont really understand the question as charleston is the equivalent of a tier two, not a tier one.

yuryevna is winning nothing ever again
