Andrei Orita, holder of the tournament license:
"It is my honor to thank everyone involved in this gala moment. I want to congratulate Panna Udvardy and wish her good luck in the doubles final. Dear Ana Bogdan, after three Concord Iași Open boys' tournaments I can say that you messed up our plans a bit with the spectators. We had a five-year plan with different objectives and we fulfilled them all from the first edition. We are put in trouble, because it will be quite difficult to innovate and attract you with something new in future editions. Thanks to all the players for the quality tennis this week. Thank you to the Concord Service Center team. The quality of the tournament has increased a lot under the management of the WTA supervisor, Mrs. Mihaela Testiban, to whom I want to thank. He is a consummate professional who gave one hundred percent for this tournament and for the image of Iași tennis in the world. I also thank the mayor, a friend of performance tennis, the Open Events Agency, my partner Gabriel Iftimoaie, who has been posted here for several weeks. Thank you to the volunteers, referees, ball boys, everyone involved, the media team, the doctors, they all worked to make this tournament a success. Thanks to Mr. Daniel Dobre, the tournament director. We put together a little project and forget we got here. The press was on top, this tournament was very publicized and I thank the media outlets for their involvement. Honestly, I personally did not expect that there would be so much interest and that we would not be able to introduce so many applicants to the base. By my estimates I think we are approaching 1,500 spectators, inside and outside the base. You are amazing and give us courage to continue. Thanks also to the main sponsor BCR, a reliable partner of ours, who has supported us since the first edition, to all our sponsors and partners. Last but not least, I want to thank my family and wife for their support".
