Final Quotes

Daniela Hantuchova: "I'm always so happy coming back here year after year, and it feels great to finally get the title. The first week on grass is always really demanding on the body, so I'm proud of how I made it through so many long matches throughout the week. And when I really needed to, I was tough mentally. I've been playing here since '99, I think it was about time I got the title!"


Donna Vekic: "I have mixed emotions right now. I can't be happy after losing a match, but it was a great week for me and I'm happy I could reach the finals. And I gave it my all today maybe it wasn't my best tennis, but it was the best I could do today, and Daniela was just the better player out there. I was happy to be playing the finals hopefully I'll have many more matches like that."
