Quotes from the news wire:
On paper it's a step in the right direction. It's tough to just assess a single tournament. I have to put a lot of things in perspective for the last-four, five weeks since the clay season, coming into this part of the year, I was losing a few first-round matches, matches that I wanted to be winning.

I haven't set a time table for Maria Sharapova, but I've always said that I would do it on my own terms... i'd love to play in another Olympics, but I don't know if that will happen and at this point in 2018, I don't really want to know.

I faced Svitolina last year in Beijing for the first time. She's a young girl that's already in the top 30 with a tremendous amount of potential and someone that you'll be seeing in the top very soon, she has a good game, an all-around player. It'll be a tough matchup, but one that I look forward to actually.
It certainly felt good to start, after not playing a match for a couple of months. Despite all the training, it's such a different feeling to go out on the court and play in front of a crowd, you always want to apply the things you work on little by little into match atmosphere. I think I did that quite well. I wanted to start off sharp and try to do the right things.
