Final Quotes
Petra Kvitova: “I felt that she played a little bit more aggressively than me in the beginning of the match. So I was trying to find my rhythm to play a little bit more aggressive, maybe a little bit longer rallies. I think I did that and started to serve a little bit better as well, even I had more double faults that I wish. But I still think that I find a way to beat her. I played her in Wuhan and I was break down there as well from the beginning of the match. I just probably knew that it’s still not the end, so I was just trying to play point by point. That was kind of the style of the match.”

Elina Svitolina: “I started really well, and then at 4-1 I made some stupid decisions. She just took the opportunity because she is so experienced and so aggressive player, she took it straightaway. Yeah, so it’s for me it’s just another experience that I need to be more focused, more precise with my plan. With top players you cannot make these mistakes. I missed my chance to win a set, and then you never know what could happen afterwards.”
