Final Quotes
Alison Van Uytvanck:
"I was a bit nervous in the beginning, and I think she was as well, with two Belgians playing against each other in a final. But I broke her in the first game of the match, which was a great start for me because I was serving well all week and I knew it would be hard for her to break me. Then I got two breaks immediately in the second set, which was even better. I just played a very good match today I'm so happy with the level I performed and it's just great to end my season like this."

Yanina Wickmayer: "First of all I want to congratulate Alison for a great week. I did what I could, but she was just too good. She played too well for me today and she's a great, up-and-coming player. Other than that I had a great week. I played some good matches and enjoyed my time here. It's always nice to be in Taipei last time I was here was a few years ago, and I really enjoyed it then too."
