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

set, but overall I thought she was playing really well

happy about reaching the final. We had great matches,
tough opponents and tough matches throughout the week."
