WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID
"I feel great after winning it last year and winning it
twice more in '09 and '10. It feels great again to win
here at home. The week was really good. It's going to
help my confidence and my game, especially in the indoor
season. I'm going to head to Rotterdam now and I'm
looking forward to keep playing with good form there.
"Overall I think I played really well. I served good
today even though my percentage wasn't too high
especially in the first set. I felt the best this week.
That's a positive thing. I haven't lost too much energy,
which is important for next week too."
"First of all, congratulations to Marin. I think he
played a solid match. He served well when he had to. I
started with a break, didn't feel I was playing my best
tennis in the beginning when I needed to step up and put
more pressure on him. He played the big points better
with good shots and deserved to win.
was pretty happy to be in the final here in Zagreb this
week. I'm happy things are going in the right direction.
I'll try to build from here and try to stay healthy,
which is the most important thing for me. I want to
continue to try and play some good tennis."
“It is very nice. We had hoped for this when we decided
to start playing together. Of course, getting a first
title so early in the season is nice. Hopefully, we can
use this confidence in the bigger tournaments now. I
didn’t know it was my 10th title. My partner is probably
laughing at that, as he has much more.”
"I had a tough game on serve in the first set, when we
got broken. But we stayed strong and kept fighting to
give ourselves a chance of playing better in the second
set. In the Match Tie-break, we came out aggressively
and became more so once we got a bit of a lead. We did
not play many matches in Australia, so this week is very
welcome. With big tournaments coming up, it is important
to win a title."
