Final Quotes
Martina Hingis:
"Obviously it's very exciting when you convert match point and you're like, 'Yes, we did it.' But Sabine played incredible. That super tie-breaker, I was like, 'Okay, I better put the ball in and let her do the rest.' Because she was really on fire. From 5-all on it was just amazing. She definitely gets going when it's tight other players sometimes go down, but she lifts her level in those moments."

Sabine Lisicki: "I always wanted to play with Martina, obviously. We talked about it at Wimbledon last year, and finally we did it here in the States. I think we're just happy and really enjoying it."
