– Begu’s previous best results this year were semifinal showings in Acapulco and Palermo.
– Begu is the ninth first-time titlist this year after Barthel in Hobart, Kerber in Paris [Indoors], Arruabarrena-Vecino in Bogotá, Babos in Monterrey, Hsieh in Kuala Lumpur, Bertens in Fès, Oudin in Birmingham and Jovanovski in Baku.

Final Quotes
Irina-Camelia Begu:
“It feels great to win a title. I’ll take back sweet memories from the Tashkent Open. I’m glad I made the last minute decision to play here, and I will surely come back to defend my title next year.”

Donna Vekic: “I’m happy I had a good week, but a little disappointed of not being able to win the title after coming close. But I will come back. And the event has brought me a lot of experience and will surely help me in the WTA events I play now – this week will be great for my future on the tour.”

Paula Kania & Polina Pekhova: “We are thrilled and speechless. We were the last pair to get in and to win the tournament is amazing. We have always seen the winners here wearing the Uzbek Chapans, and we never imaged we would ever wear them, but we are proud to wear them today!”
