Final Quotes
Vandeweghe:
"I usually take tournaments one match at a time, so early in the week I was just focused on being prepared for my first match in the qualification. Once I took care of that first match I just went from there, and I got more and more comfortable on the courts. I played a ton of points and games, and a lot of long matches and three-setters as well. I was trying not to think about it being a final today. I got the first set and I thought to myself, 'One set to the good, one more to go, try and get the early break now and keep the pressure on her.' I was really just thinking about it step by step, just like how I would play in any match."
