"I had to be really strong out there today," said the Hungarian afterwards. "It was important that I served really well in the key moments. The last games were very tough, she was not giving me any free points and I really had to fight while staying aggressive."
"It was a very good match from my side," said the third seed afterwards. "It´s always a tough one against Yanina."
"Really happy to get through," she said after the match. "Especially at the beginning of the third set I was trying to stay calm, stay positive, and just keep going and give everything I have left and it turned out very good, so I am really happy with the win."
"I am really happy with how I played today," said Witthoeft afterwards. "I hadn´t played against Annika for a very long time but we do practice quite often. It was tougher that what the score shows. I'm really happy to be through to the semifinals."
