Final Quotes
Eugenie Bouchard:
"This is kind of like a stepping stone for me. Winning a WTA title is of course a goal I've had, and I'm so happy to accomplish it, but I still want to achieve more - more titles, bigger titles - so this is a step in the right direction, and it's part of the dream, but I want to move forward and keep going from here."

Michaella Krajicek:
"I was very happy with the way we played. The first set went very smoothly. In the second set, they played a good game on my serve, where we just missed one ball. But in the tie-break, we picked up our level and I'm happy that we won."
