    Serena said: "I honestly can't believe I won. I really was preparing my runner-up speech, because I thought, `Man, she's playing so great." AP story

    Victoria said: "Serena deserves the win. She showed how true a champion she is. I definitely gave it all today. Stepping out of this court today, I will have no regrets."

    Serena now leads Vika 10-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was earlier this year on a chlorophyll court in the semfinals of the 2012 Olympic Games at Wimbledon, when Serena defeated Victoria 6-1, 6-2.

Upon returning to play last year Serena won the Stanford and Toronto titles; this year she has won at Stanford, Wimbledon (Championships and Olympics), Charleston and Madrid.
    Serena has a 53-4 singles match record this year, with losses to Ekaterina Makarova, Caroline Wozniacki, Virginie Razzano and Angelique Kerber.

    "[After the Olympics] I went to Montréal and I was supposed to practice there, supposed to play the next day, but I woke up and I had a stomach bug for a few days and wasn't feeling really good. I had some tests done, some blood work, some ultrasound stuff. They said I should just probably rest. I just went home and took Cincinnati off as well. I think it was just a sign that I needed a few weeks off...
    "[I had the tests] because of the pain I was having. It was really weird. They told me I was fine, not pregnant. I'm like, 'Can I get my money back?' [laughter]" postmatch interview

    "The match was so weird because the conditions were so tough out there, and I really couldn't play my game. She couldn't play her game either." WTA story

I don't like to interact with many people when I'm in a break during my match, so I can keep my focus... but don't worry, once the match is done I'm friendly again :)
    "But when the match was over today and I was done with cool down, press and physio, I was free to go home. It was 7pm when I got back to the hotel, so I was at my job for almost 12 hours today! And yes, for me the hotel means home because out of 365 days a year, I spend more then 300 days in a hotel!!!!" Player blog by Sorana Cirstea

That's how I was able to get that run of games on the second set." postmatch interview

    Angelique said: "I was trying to give my best, and it was very close and hard match also in the first set. But the balls from [Sara] were very difficult for me, and also the spin.

    Laura said: "I felt like I didn't play as well as I did in my last three matches. I just hit too many unforced errors. Sam is someone who sort of makes you feel like you're playing bad because she hits it with so much spin, so it's hard to get her serve back sometimes.

    Maria said: "[Marion] was going a lot for her second serves. I think she probably had like 30 serves that were 99‑miles‑per‑hour second serves. It's like she worked consistently to get 99 miles an hour. Every time I looked at the clock it was like 99, 99. If I lose this match, I'm going to have nightmares [laughter]. I guess she just has that nontraditional game where it's kind of sneaky. You don't know if she's going to come in or if she's gonna hit the ball or be flat or hit the frame. She's worked a lot on it. That's why it's good." postmatch interview

    About playing #1 Victoria Azarenka in the semifinals, Maria said: "I think we both play a pretty aggressive game. We're good competitors and we love to win. I mean, who doesn't? But she's had such a solid year this year, kinda her breakthrough in terms of winning the [Australian Open], being so solid, so consistent, being #1 in the world for the first time. So a lot of firsts for her, which I think a lot of people expected in the last few years. This is kind of the year where she's come out and played really great tennis."

So it was difficult. We know each other very well. We played [doubles] together many times. So was also strange to see her on the other side of the net. Normally also when you walk on the court, we go together, we speak. Today was a bit strange, but sometimes happens. I think we played a good match. For the tension is normal.

    After winning the 1st set, Maria broke Victoria's serve to open the 2nd. But the rest of the 2nd set was dominated by Victoria. In the 3rd set, although Vika held serve more easily than Maria, she did not break Maria's serve until match point.

    Victoria said: "I felt like towards the end of the first [set] I was kind of getting a little bit better, trying to find the momentum and getting more and more comfortable in the match. So even though I lost the first set I felt like it was close. I had a few opportunities; I missed them. But once it finished, I kind of thought that I had to turn it around and start from zero, like it's a new match." postmatch interview

    Maria said: "A lot of swings in the match today. Certainly had the lead and the advantage. [Victoria] picked up her game. In the third [set] I think a lot of it had to do with the returns. I didn't do much on her service games. She was winning them pretty easy. On mine they were quite long, and just making too many errors not putting any pressure on her. So that's, I think, the most frustrating part." postmatch interview

    About the final, Victoria said: "[Serena is the] toughest opponent there is in the draw, and being in the final makes it even more difficult. So definitely gonna be a tough one... If you look at our record it says it all. I haven't won in any last meetings, so I definitely need to find something to surprise her tomorrow, because she's in a great form, feeling really confident right now. She has everything on her side."

    About the final, Serena said: "I have to stay focused on the task at hand and play the current #1 player in the world. I always believe I'm the best, but on paper she's been more consistent, going much deeper in the Slams than I have been. I definitely have to do the best I can." WTA story
