Final Quotes
Simona Halep: "I really wanted to play in this tournament and to win it. Today’s final was a very emotional one. The crowd was amazing and I really want to thank everybody who played a part in the tournament. What I wish for now is to get to Singapore and do an equally good job there. I want to play every match and every tournament to reach as high a ranking as possible."

Roberta Vinci: "I knew ever since yesterday that it was going to be difficult. Simona is an incredible tennis player and she has a phenomenal game. I gave it my best and I actually managed to get to 2-0 in the second set but she was too strong. However, it was nice to receive the support of the crowd, and I am happy to have played my first singles final of the year in here."
