- Bouchard is the second Canadian in the last 26
years to win a WTA title, the most recent being
Aleksandra Wozniak’s triumph in Stanford in 2008.
In her one previous WTA final, Bouchard was runner-up in
Osaka last October.
- Bouchard’s victory leaves No.16
Sloane Stephens as the only member of the Top 20 without
a WTA title.
- This was Pliskova’s third WTA final,
having won Kuala Lumpur in 2013 and having been
runner-up in Pattaya City earlier this year.
Krajicek and Pliskova win their first WTA title as a duo
in their first event together. It is Krajicek’s fifth
WTA doubles title and Pliskova’s second.
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."
"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."
