Final Quotes
Bojana Jovanovski:
"Zhang Shuai is a great player - she played great this week and the tournament before in Guangzhou too. I think it was a really difficult match today. It's really tough to play against a friend. I was just trying to be fair on the court and play my game, and I'm happy to win this title."
