“I think I have quite a lot of weapons and my return is my secret weapon. I was returning great today and put a lot of pressure on Pablo’s serves. He had a couple of games on his serve where I had no chance, but when he hit a second serve, I was trying to put the ball inside the court and put pressure. That’s why I broke his serve many times.

“It’s a great feeling, an amazing feeling. I must say that I didn’t expect I could win this before the tournament started. I’m so happy that my face is going to be on that wall with all these great players! I’m very happy to be next to Miroslav Mecir, who also won this tournament as well.”

“It felt like a long week, much longer than usual. I felt pretty tired especially mentally coming in here. I just had to regroup and tried to make the most of it. I didn’t think at the start of the week we’d be standing here on Sunday as the winners. But I’m very happy.”

“It’s good fun coming here straight after Wimbledon. They put on a great show and it’s always good fun to get back on the clay after such an enjoyable grass-court season. They put up a really good fight and Henri and I had to hang in there. We started to get the momentum at the end of the first set, when we got the first break. We then just tried to keep rolling and lucky for us we got the title.”
