WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Lukas Rosol: “It could not be better this week. I came here from a full two weeks of practice. I didn’t know what to expect of myself. So I’m pretty satisfied with this result… I will remember this week. It was very emotional for me and is something special. I found a way to beat some good players and succeed.”

On what winning the title means: “I wanted to dedicate this trophy to someone, so I found the energy. I felt somebody was helping me from up top. It’s not just about me. My family has always supported me and my tennis. I felt match after match, my dream was coming true.”

Guillermo Garcia-Lopez:
“Today, I couldn’t play my game. I didn’t have enough power anymore. At the end, he was playing better than me.”
