Querrey: “We were both a little nervous today, it wasn’t the cleanest match. I just battled through and happened to hit one great shot in the second set, and it was on match point.

“Sometimes it feels better to win when you don’t play your best, because you know you have another gear. I had two finals last year, both close losses, so it feels good to be in the winner’s circle.”

Ram: “I played well on match point, I thought. He just came up with a great shot. People don’t give [Querrey] credit for how well he moves.

“It’s hard when you play someone you know so well in a final. I would’ve loved to hold my serve every time and win 6-4, 6-4, but that’s not how it works. What I was more disappointed about was not keeping the momentum I had in both sets. I thought I played well in the tie-break, but he hit the outside of the line three times.”

Marach: “It was a big honour to play against [the Bryans] in the final.

“Fabrice and I have a great relationship. We only started playing together recently but I hope we continue and win some more tournaments this year.”

Martin: “We always thought we had nothing to lose. We knew we were going to make it a good match. We gave it everything we had, and we got a bit lucky in the end.”

M. Bryan: “It hurts. We’ll probably have a sleepless night, thinking about what we could have done differently, but that’s doubles. It’s a fine line.

“Davis Cup will be big. Then we’ll head down to Indian Wells and Miami, and hopefully kick off the year with a win over there.”
