I played well on the important points and that’s how I won in two sets. I really love this tournament. I love the people here and I feel everybody loves me as well. I’m not Austrian, but I feel like I’m Austrian when I’m here.”

“It was a good week – I’m disappointed not to win,” said the Belgian, “but she was better than me today and I just have to accept it and play better next time. I’m excited to move onto grass now and hopefully I keep playing well.”
