I did well to recover and get back into the match, I fought at every point and I'm proud of what I did. I was happy to have won every match, but especially the first match, when I was seven breaks down (against the Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia, ed.). Winning the title afterwards to have faced a situation like this is incredible."
