FINALS REVIEW MAHUT CAPTURES FIRST CROWN; MIRNYI/TECAU VICTORIOUS
Nicolas Mahut won his first ATP World Tour title, becoming the second qualifier to triumph this season (Ernests Gulbis - Delray Beach)
World No. 240 Mahut is the lowest ranked winner on the ATP World Tour since 2008, when 244th-ranked Kei Nishikori won the title in Delray Beach.
Mahut won 46 of his 47 service games during his run to the trophy.
Stanislas Wawrinka was contesting his first tour-level final on grass.
Max Mirnyi and Horia Tecau lifted their second team trophy of the season (Bucharest).


WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Nicolas Mahut: "It's amazing. I cannot believe I won today. I didn't know if I was going to play again when I had some bad times with my knee. All my team helped me a lot. We worked hard and here I am with the trophy. It's a good story."

On the match: "Emotionally, the last game was difficult, but I really served great. We played five points and I made four first serves, which helped a lot. Today was really tough to play in the conditions. It was rainy and cold, windy. I won my serve at 3-3 [in the first set], then I broke him. That for me, was the key to the match."

Stanislas Wawrinka: "First of all, I want to congratulate Nico and his team. He has always been playing well on grass and he deserves this title. This year, I go to Wimbledon with more practice and matches under my belt. As always Im happy and looking forward to going to Wimbledon. Winning matches here gives me a lot of confidence going into Wimbledon. I had a great week here and Im looking forward to playing Lleyton [Hewitt] on Monday. It will be a big match for both of us."

Max Mirnyi: "It's always rewarding to win a title. We've put in a lot of work off the court. When moments like that come, it's nothing but a joyful feeling. It's nice to get it ahead of our biggest tournament and we're heading to the All England Club to try and produce that match in and match out."
