Final Quotes
Andrea Petkovic:
"Playing in a final there are always some nerves, but I was expecting that and expecting a tough opponent. I’ve never won two two tournaments in a year before and I’m obviously very happy to achieve this."

Shelby Rogers:
"I'm definitely feeling the matches – I’ve played a lot this week – but she played incredibly and is always a tough competitor. I'm still so happy with my whole week, though. I had such a great time here. The fans were amazing too. I had an incredible time here on and off the court. It was just an incredible experience this year in Bad Gastein."
