“I’m very happy with my week. Winning a title is a big step, it’s an objective I wanted to achieve this year. It was a well-played final. We both played at a high level.”

“I think the first set was a pretty high level from both of us. I should have won the tie-break, but had an easy volley mistake. All in all, he was the better player and had more chances in my service games. He deserved to win today. I think he put pressure on me all the time and was serving really well.

“He’s had an amazing year, reaching the quarter-finals in the last two Grand Slam and semis in the Masters 1000 in Rome. I think we will see him in the Top 10 soon.”

“I’m very happy to win our third title together and especially on indoor hard. It’s very good for our confidence going forward.”

“We really felt great with our game today. It was a tough match like the others this week. The level was high and demanding and it gives us a lot of confidence to win. It’s our third title of the year as a team and we’re improving our ranking.”
