Final Quotes
Ekaterina Makarova:
"Today was a tough match. She was playing really good tennis and serving really well. I needed to be very focused on my return. I was a little bit nervous at the end, but I'm really happy to win my second title."

Karolina Pliskova: "She played better than me the whole match. I just was trying to stay in the match and fight. What happened in my last matches when I came back from two match points and from 3-0 in the third, I was hoping that could happen again. But it didn't. She had a very good week and played well today."
