On the feeling of being the first woman to carry the flag at the Olympics for Russia:
"Pretty incredible; it's such an honor. I grew up in Russia watching the Olympics - it was such a big part of our culture - and at that time, tennis wasn't as popular (in Russia) as it is now. How big the sport is over there this year as opposed to when I was watching it as a young girl makes it extra special."
On the joy of winning:
"Tennis is such an individual sport, so it's a spectacular feeling when you've achieved things that you've really worked for."
On her new business venture, Sugarpova:
"My manager, whom I've been working with since I was 10 years old, brought this to the table, and I thought it was so funny and so creative. Over the past two years, I've loved the different flavors of gummys; I thought why not put together something I could have as my own. To own something 100 percent is something that I really wanted to experience."
On if a family is in the future:
"For sure! My mother and I have a very close relationship; she had me when she was really young. I've missed that train, but absolutely, some day."
