Final Quotes
Andrea Hlavackova:
"I think we clicked right away here, from the first match, even though we had no matches to prepare, really. It's been a great wave we've been riding these two weeks. I cannot describe how I feel. We had the toughest draw possible from the first round, where we were beating players who had beaten us at other Grand Slams. And beating Petrova and Srebotnik was an extremely tough match. I would never take that for granted. And the Williams sisters too amazing."

Lucie Hradecka: "I've already gotten a lot of messages. One was our Fed Cup captain, who wrote me, 'Okay now we can go to sleep, so well done!' But I think a lot of people at home watched this on TV, and a lot of people are happy we got another Grand Slam. It's something big for our small country."
