WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Rafael Nadal: "This was a great week for me and today I played exceptionally well, I dominated the game against the world No. 4 and couldn't be happier, especially when I think where I am coming from. Perhaps the conditions were in my favour but I feel it was maybe one of the best matches of my career."

David Ferrer: "I wish I could have played a better match but I never found my rhythm. You have good days and bad days. Rafa played really well and I couldn't do much, and never had any chance. I leave with a positive feeling,"

Lukasz Kubot: “We decided to play together at the last minute. We were supposed to play with different partners, but they got injured. I think we did great. Every match, we played much better. We played good tennis today, especially in the second set.”

David Marrero: “I really like coming back to Acapulco. It is amazing to repeat winning the title. We played good in every match. I am so happy because I have great memories here. I hope to come back every year.”
