What The Players Said

Thiem: “It’s been an unbelievably great week. The first time I had to defend a title and I made it. Maybe I played better in the three matches before this, but a final is always special. You have so much to win and so much to lose. I played a solid third set and I’m really happy. My arm is a little tired, but I will be ok for Roland Garros on Monday.”

Zverev: “I spent about 12.5 hours on court this week, so I’m a bit tired. Against a player like Dominic, who is one of the best clay-court players right now, you have to be at your best to beat him. There’s not a lot of chances. It’s really tough to win when you’re not at 100 per cent.”

Cabal: “This is a tournament that has given us great memories. We play really well here. We feel it on court. It will give us confidence for the next weeks.”

Farah: “It’s a great experience. It’s never too shabby to win tournaments and it’s a great feeling. No better place to do it than in Nice, with a great atmosphere. The weather was perfect and I’m very happy.”
