Petra Kvitova: "I'm very happy I could win this
final today. For me the whole tournament was great - I
felt good all week on the court. I really enjoyed my
week here and it's even better to come away with the
Angelique Kerber: "Petra was
playing very well in the first set - in the second set I
started to play my game, and I tried to do the same
thing in the third set, but she started playing tougher
again and moved better. I was trying to give my best but
she was better at the end, so all credit to her."
Cara Black: "In the first set, especially
from my side, we made a lot of unforced errors. We were
trying to do too much at times when we didn't really
need to. In the second set we were a little more calm
and clearer thinking, putting more balls back in the
court and had a little bit of strategy going."
Sania Mirza: "We teamed up together knowing yes,
we can be a very good team. Obviously the first time you
play you don't expect to win - you try, but you don't
expect it - but we're happy we could come through and
win such a big tournament, and winning such a tight
match in the finals was great too."
