WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID





Granollers
: "Today I was half on my way
to the airport, but I kept on fighting and started to
play better in the middle of the second set. I
definitely didn’t start well, but he played
unbelievable, very solid with almost no mistakes.


"But until you lose the last point, you are still
standing and I kept on going. I got probably more
nervous than usual when I had to close the match at 5-3
in the third, but it’s normal to get that way in a
final. I played very well after that and I did it. I
came into this week playing well so I knew I could do
something here."



Monaco
: “I am disappointed to not have
been able to come through today. The score never lies
and I need to congratulate Marcel because he was a
better player than me. Of course I know that overall,
this was a great week for me. If I can be in the final
every week, I will sign immediately. When I think where
I was at the beginning of the season this is great.


"I probably played my best tennis of the year in the
first set, which I need to be happy about, but Marcel
started to play better and things turned around
unfortunately for me. I really enjoyed being back in
Kitzbuhel after 2007 when I won.”



Emmrich
: "Not dropping a set is
quite unusual in winning a doubles tournament. It just
shows the level we can play together."



Kas
: "I was a finalist here in 2007 with
Tomas Behrend and lost a close one. I always wanted to
come back and have another opportunity because it's my
favourite tournament.

"It's only a 45-minute car
ride for me from home; I know so many of the spectators
who come to watch me. Winning it now with Martin is the
best. This is a great memory that we will always have.
We had great chemistry and great energy.”
