* Feliciano Lopez finally landed the Gstaad title, 10 years on from a runner-up finish to Richard Gasquet.
* The 34-year-old Lopez captured his fifth ATP World Tour title in his 14th final. It is his first trophy since June 2014 at Eastbourne.
* Lopez is the sixth different Spaniard to win an ATP World Tour title in 2016 – after Roberto Bautista Agut (2 titles), Rafael Nadal (2), Nicolas Almagro (1), Albert Ramos-Vinolas (1) and Fernando Verdasco (1).
* Haase, 29, is now 2-3 in ATP World Tour finals. Three years ago, he lost to Mikhail Youzhny in the Gstaad title match.
* Julio Peralta and Horacio Zeballos won their second ATP World Tour team trophy in their second final (also 2016 Sao Paulo).


Lopez: “It’s an amazing feeling, I’ve been waiting 10 years to win this title. It’s been a long wait since 2006, but it’s been worth it. This is a very special tournament, with a lot of tradition, where a lot of Spaniards have won in the past. It’s a unique place to play.”

Haase: “Three years ago, I received a goat [named Antonia] for reaching the final. So this year, I was dreaming about winning a cow and the trophy. Hopefully I can come back next year and do better. Congrats to Feli, who played great his week.”

Peralta: “We’re really happy and enjoyed this tournament a lot. It’s pleasing to finish the week this way. I feel really good playing with Horacio and we’re motivated to keep playing together.”

Zeballos: “We’ve beaten the best team of the tournament. This give us tonnes of confidence to play together in the future. In my opinion, we kept our focus from the first ball, trying to dominate the match. That was a key.”
