Final Quotes
: "For me this was supposed to be preparation before the big ones, but now it's one of my favorite tournaments. The resort, the courts and everything - I'm happy they made it to hardcourts. I really fell in love with this tournament."

McHale: "I think this tournament is one of the nicest on the tour. It's a great tournament and the fans are amazing - they're really into it. I think Dominika played really well today - I was just trying to stay with her. But hopefully there will be more finals to come for me."
