Nadia Petrova has said that she was delighted with her triumph at the Pan Pacific Open tennis tournament.
"I feel amazing," said the 30-year-old. "This is the biggest tournament I ever won, and this is a great accomplishment.
"At the beginning of the tournament, I didn't expect to be here because I had a back injury, so it's delightful to be here right now.
"I used so much energy in the first set and it took a while to get back into the game, and the change of the court helped me a little bit to think about what I needed to do in the third set."
This was Petrova's second title of the season and 12th overall.
