"I feel so amazing. I'm so blessed... I feel like I shouldn't be holding the trophy. I can't believe I'm holding it and Venus isn't," said Serena as she clutched the large Venus Rosewater dish. "It's named for Venus and she always wins. It's just like wow, hasn't settled in that I've won yet," she added.
"Today she was too good. She had an answer to everything. She played the best tennis today so congratulations," said the 29-year-old, Venus.
She also said, "I don't think the loss has settled in yet so I'm still smiling. I've had so many great times here and of course I'm looking forward to next year and the doubles final."
