Final Quotes

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 tournament now."
