Final Quotes
Serena Williams: "Sara played really well in the first set. She was doing everything right and I could tell she had obviously improved since our last meeting in Paris last year. It was unfortunate she got injured in the last game of the set, but overall I thought she was playing really well out there."

Sara Errani: "It's a sad day for me, but I tried my best. I had a lot of good moments this week, and the crowd was unbelievable."

Katarina Srebotnik: "To end the final like this, not finishing the match by winning the last point and really winning the match, it's not the same feeling. But regardless of this, going into the final we were very happy about reaching the final. We had great matches, tough opponents and tough matches throughout the week."
