WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Youzhny
: "I'm very happy. When you win a tournament, it doesn't matter how you've played or who you beat. My last title was at the start of last year in Zagreb, so it's been quite long. I'm trying everything to try and play more consistently at a high level.

"When you see the score, it looks easy, but it wasn't. It was only one break in each set and I didn't have many chances to break him again. The last game on my serve was also very close."

Haase: "I didn’t feel well last weekend and had some problems with my knee which was pretty swollen. And now I’m here as the runner-up and that’s great. I think that the altitude fits my game and that I can handle it well. It’s tough to play against Mikhail. He’s a great player and I never beat him.”

Murray: "It's been good. We've been playing a few months now, working hard together to try and get the team as good as we can. We've had some good results and we'll keep trying to go for the future."

Peers: "I thought it was a lot of fun. The balls bounce a bit higher, it's a bit more lively. We handled it well."
