Final Quotes
Serena Williams:
"I have been to finals the last three years here, and that's been really kind of cool. You know, I never thought I would win Australia five times. That's been really cool. Wimbledon is a little different. But, you know, this one I never seem to have won a lot before. Now I'm like, yes, I can finally say I have won this one a few times, too. Overall, it feels really good to have those multiple titles in each of those three, actually."

Victoria Azarenka: "It's a tough loss, but to be in the final again and play against the best was great. We fought hard and gave all our hearts out there, and I just have to say congratulations to Serena."
