“Today on the court I had really good energy and was quite positive and motivated. There were a lot of things at stake for me and looking ahead to the [Emirates ATP] Race To London, this match can decide a lot. I was really motivated to be focused on every point. I was extremely happy and proud with how I help the energy up for those two sets.

“I’m really grateful for my team for giving me good energy and we’re looking to do more and always improve. When you have a week like this, it’s worth more and I’ll definitely enjoy this. It’s the first at the 500 level and now I have trophies from all the different categories. Next week is Paris and it’s another important week for the Race To London and to finish the season well. I hope to play well there.”

“In the second set, I was a little tight. I had a couple set points and couldn’t convert. He played good tennis today.

“It was a good week for me, playing another final. I had some good wins. It will be important to have another good week in Paris and again in London. That will be my last goal of the year.”

“I will be playing with Ivan Dodig next season. That’s my plan, but I had a great week with Jack here. We had fun and won the title, so it’s a very good way to end the season.”

“We knew well going into the week that if we played well, we could be a dangerous team. We’re both crafty and like playing from the baseline, but are also comfortable at the net. We served well and he returned very well. He usually carries me on the return games. We just had fun out there and kept it light and loose.”
