Lara serving

    Simona said: "I have pain in my Achilles. It's getting worse. I thought that it was getting better and I could play, but no. I don't want to force it. And it's a tough injury because it's always dangerous to continue with the tendon, so, I hope to just recover and be healthy again soon. I felt it a little bit in Guangzhou, a little bit in Wuhan, and here was the worst." WTA story

*n22 Sara Errani ITA d n4 s2 Petra Kvitova CZE 7-5, 6-4 Sun

    Sara said: "I had never beaten her, and she's a really good player, so I'm happy I could finally win in a big tournament like this one. It was just a few points that made the difference. I just tried to stay there every point and stay solid without too many mistakes. That's my game, anyway." WTA story

    Petra said: "It was the kind of game where I had to really be ready physically and mentally, and I just wasn't today."

    Genie said: "I thought I was physically ready but unfortunately the symptoms of my concussion came back. I want to thank all my fans at the China Open for their support. I hope to get well soon and look forward to returning next year." WTA story

    Andrea said: "I just asked [Genie] what happened, and she told me that she felt very dizzy. Then I asked if it was the same, if it was still the concussion. She said it tends to come back when she gets physically very active. I feel it's really bad luck because I thought she was playing so well again and I hope she gets better and keeps up her good play."

Ana driving a backhand

    Ana said: "I was very pleased overall, not only with the forehand but just with my game. I've been working really, really hard. Since Wimbledon, when I put the team in place, there have been some little changes here and there, but I feel like we've been working really hard. I knew it was coming, but it was just a matter of time putting it all together. And the last few days I've been doing it really well on the practice courts. I'm happy to transfer it into today's match. It was an important match for me - it was a good one to win." WTA story

    Venus said: "It was obviously a tough draw. I've had a good advantage in our series, but just maybe not my best tennis today. I had a hard time kind of controlling the ball. I felt like it was flying."

    Caro said: "[Qiang] started off playing pretty well. But I kind of stood a little too far back behind the baseline and let her play her game. Once I started stepping in a little bit and took the ball a little earlier, I felt like I was more in control and I started to play better." WTA story
