What The Players Said

Kohlschreiber: “Unbelievable. Great story the whole week. Great performance. Huge final… I’m very happy and pleased with my performance.
“I think it was another great final in Munich.”

Thiem: “It was a very close final, attractive for the crowd, for sure. It was very painful for me but Philipp was the better player today, and he deserves to win.
“Almost every final is close because both players never give up. They want to win the title. I’ve won the last five finals… now I’ve lost one. It’s no tragedy, especially against Philipp.”

Kontinen: “We played them two weeks ago in Monte-Carlo and we knew it was going to be a tough match. They’re a very tough team, especially on clay courts, and they never let you off easy. We came into the match knowing we were going to have to work hard and that it was going to be a tough battle, but we played well when it mattered most.”

Peers: “This week tested us mentally and it was great to be able to put on a good performance. We’ve been starting to play some good tennis over the last few weeks and putting together a really good partnership.”

Farah: “It was a nice final. Congrats to the champions. You played very well. This is our fifth or sixth time coming to Munich and every time you guys impress. It’s a great tournament and we had a lot of fun this week.”

Cabal: “It was an amazing tournament. Even if it was snowing, every day was packed here. Thank you to the sponsors and the people who supported us all week.”
