What The Players Said

Schwartzman: “It was an amazing match for me. I played well and fought all match. What happened to Grigor with the cramps also happened to me in Australia this year. With my doubles final and title in singles, it’s amazing.

“I’ve practiced really hard to improve my tennis. I played all the points with 100 per cent effort and I need to. All the matches are tough, against Tomic, Dzumhur and Bagnis. I played really well.”

Dimitrov: “I started cramping at 5-2 in the second set. It was very unfortunate that I couldn’t close out the match. I have to give credit to Diego.

“I have two big events coming up and hope that I can face one of the top guys there. There will be some altitude in Madrid and I won’t have much time to get ready, but I like it there.”

Sela: “I really love it here in Turkey. It’s very close to home. Great food here and a great city. I think me, Flavio and Diego are the shortest players on the tour and we’re all here on the court.”

Cipolla: “We’ve been having so much fun. It’s been a wonderful week together. I want to congratulate Diego and Andres on a great week and thanks to the crowd. They’ve been great. It’s been a fantastic tournament.”
