"I'm always so
happy coming back here year after year, and it feels
great to finally get the title. The first week on grass
is always really demanding on the body, so I'm proud of
how I made it through so many long matches throughout
the week. And when I really needed to, I was tough
mentally. I've been playing here since '99, I think – it
was about time I got the title!"
"I have mixed emotions right
now. I can't be happy after losing a match, but it was a
great week for me and I'm happy I could reach the
finals. And I gave it my all today – maybe it wasn't my
best tennis, but it was the best I could do today, and
Daniela was just the better player out there. I was
happy to be playing the finals – hopefully I'll have
many more matches like that."
