“It was very tough because Jelena started off so strong. It was my second final of the year, so I was a little bit nervous, I wanted to perform really well. I feel like I played good enough tennis to give her a go today and I just wanted to keep fighting out there. It’s very difficult for her to perform at her best right now. We have gotten a lot of injuries. This is towards the end of the year. I wish Jelena a speedy recovery,” said Sharapova.
