Ai Miyazato after her first win.
"I feel very happy at the moment. I was dreaming about this when I was young, so my dream has almost come true. I feel great."
"I went through a lot of tough times especially the last couple years. But Mic, my caddie, stood by me the whole time. We grew together as a team, and I'm really happy that we kept it going."
"When I had a good success in Japan I was still very young. I was just going for it, not scared of anything.

Ai Miyazato becomes Rolex First-Time Winner at Evian Masters Presented by Société Générale
Evian Masters champ Miyazato looks for back-to-back wins. Fresh off becoming a Rolex First-Time Winner at the Evian Masters last week, Ai Miyazato is again in the hunt for a title this week at the RICOH Women's British Open. The 24-year-old is even-par 216 (75-71-70) through three rounds of play at Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club, four shots off the pace of leader Catriona Matthew. No one has ever won the RICOH Women's British Open and the event preceding it.
