The No.8 seed came from a set down to beat Simona Halep 4-6 7-5 6-1 at the Foro Italico.
"Every single day, everyone is working very hard," said Svitolina. "They are waiting for these kind of moments when there is a right moment and the right day.
"I think I can be proud of myself for handling the pressure, because I played some tough matches here. Today I needed to show that I am there and I want to win and I'm ready to do it."
Svitolina is enjoying a career-best season after winning titles in Istanbul, Dubai and Taipei City this year.
