The world number one revealing afterwards, that she’d been struggling with a back injury.

"Well, I guess the secret is out, but I obviously wasn’t hitting the way I normally would hit and wasn’t moving the way I normally would move and making a lot of errors that I normally would not make and I haven’t made in a couple of years. But it’s okay. You know, I feel like I know for a fact I can play so much better than what I did today, so with that, knowing that, I’m not disappointed or anything. I just know that I can play ten times better than what I did today." Serena Williams said.

"It’s amazing. I mean, this victory means so much to me. And, you know, I worked so hard and all the hard work, you know, it’s paying off." Ann Ivanovic said.
