Final Quotes
Bojana Jovanovski: "Anybody could have won this match today. It was a close match and all credit to Olga for an incredible battle. I'm so happy, and I didn't really believe I could do it today. I've had a tough year. I haven't had too many matches, so it was good that I had to play the qualies. It's great to finish this week on a good note. This title means a lot to me. I'll be back next year."

Olga Govortsova: "Bojana played very well today. She was moving well and hitting the ball really hard out there. Congratulations to her for a good win."
