WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID
Youzhny: It is a really good
tournament and has a great atmosphere.
Ferrer: The truth is that Youzhny
played very good. He sliced and served very well. He was
more comfortable than me on court, I was missing touch.
Peya: At the end, when you're down
6-9 with Bob [Bryan] serving, the chances are not big
you're going to turn it around. We managed to hang in
there and we're standing here with the trophy. [We're]
very, very happy."
