Elena Vesnina: "It was really difficult to play today because
of the wind. It was not about the serve, it was not
about good forehands or good backhands – it was about
fighting spirit. If you're able to handle this, if
you're able to play under the pressure with this wind,
you'll do well. You always want to show the best tennis
in the final, but it doesn't matter, a win is a win."
Jamie Hampton: "She played the
conditions much better than I did. Honestly, I was
surprised how she was even hitting the ball in the
court, and on top of that she was playing some very good
tennis. She was very deserving of the title today. I'm
disappointed that I lost today, obviously, and I would
have loved to win the tournament, but on to the next
