After the closing ceremony, we had a brief interview with the winner GM Humpy Koneru who spoke about her result, the organization in general and why she could not make it to ─░stanbul last year. The winner was smiling but quite reserved and calm about her win:

"First two rounds the way I played was very good. Just missed 2-3 move combination starting with the third game. Once I lost to Hou Yifan I lost my hope to win the title. I just wanted to play some good games. Overall I could not really play up to my level."
