WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Andy Murray: “He's one of the best grass court players in the world. Me and Marin, we have played against each other since the juniors and we have had a lot of close matches and tight matches. I was lucky to come through in the end because he was playing great tennis, especially towards the end of the second set and I got a little bit lucky at the end of that set.”

On his successful return from injury: “I worked very hard in the time that I had off to try and get myself back in the best shape possible and I couldn't do it without my team. They have helped me a lot. They have been very patient with me. they're why I was able to come out and play so tough the last two matches.”

Marin Cilic: “It was a great match from both sides, a great level of tennis. Andy showed he is capable of coming back; he's a great fighter. Congratulations to him for a great week. It was an extremely great week for me. I enjoyed all my matches. It wasn't easy. I had some tough fights. I hope I'm going to continue with my good form.”

Mike Bryan: “It was a high quality match by both teams and we feel fortunate that we played our best tennis down the stretch. To win our eighth title of 2013 and the 90th of our careers is a dream. Our confidence is high and we're hoping to carry that into Wimbledon.”

Bob Bryan: “Like they've been doing all year, Bruno and Alex played really solid tennis and we had to hit some great shots at the end to get the win. It'll be nice to put the racquets down for a couple days and recharge the batteries for Wimbledon.”

“Special thanks to Chris Kermode and the Queen's Club for putting on another fantastic event. And Happy Father's Day to our awesome Dad back home in California. He is the reason we fell in love with this game so many years ago.”
