Final Quotes
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova: "When I lost seven games in a row I don't really know what happened - maybe I was a little stressed because I was missing some shots and she was so solid. Also, I was serving so well throughout the tournament and there were times today where I was struggling on serve. But I knew it was from my side, so if I just focused and kept fighting I could get it back."

Sara Errani: "I'm still very happy I could make the final. I had very good matches from the first round, from Knapp to Svitolina to Cornet, but I was a little bit more tired than normal in the match today because of yesterday. It was very tough to recover. But it was still a very good week for me."

Anna-Lena Groenefeld: "Kveta's playing with Katarina this year and I have different partners, but we played together last year and know each other very well. It was a tough week and a tough final, but we stayed calm and to finish the week with a victory is really nice. We're really happy with this victory."

Kveta Peschke: "You could say I like this tournament!. It's always fun to play here and I always seem to play well here. Anna also has great memories playing here. I always look forward to coming back."
