“I knew it was going to be tough from the get-go. John is still so comfortable on that court. I needed to come up with some special stuff today and it just came down to a couple points here and there. I did all the right things today and stayed calm. I knew I’d have my chance.

“In Marseille, I was unbeatable. This week was completely different. I wasn’t playing well at all at the start of the week. I wasn’t in a good space at all. Some things just fell my way. Today, I found the right balance. I was competing and had some fun.”

“It was an encouraging week for me. It was my first final since here last year. It’s tough to make a final. The guys are good out there. It’s definitely been an encouraging week. The margins in my matches are pretty small and I just have to fix some things. Of course I wanted to win this. I love the event. But I’m not too discouraged. I know I’m not far away and these close matches will start going my way.”

“It’s amazing. I’m very happy. It’s the first week I have played with Horacio. It’s an incredible week.”

“It was a great week in both singles and doubles. It’s one of the best weeks of the year. I’m very happy. I’m hoping it gives me a lot of confidence for the next tournaments.”
