Quoted by Maria:"It's amazing really, I'm absolutely speechless. It's always been my dream to come here and win but it was never in my mind that I would do it this year. When I came off court and saw my name on that board with all the champions, that was when I realised what I'd done. I thought I was going to get sick and I was in tears. I didn't think I'd be ready to go out and win. I did not think about it being a final, I didn't think who I was playing, I was just concentrating on my own game. I don't know how I won. I don't know what the tactics were. I just didn't care what was going on around me - I was in my own little world. I just told myself the power was in me and if I put my mind to do something, I can do it."
