WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID
Garcia-Lopez: "I'm very happy to win
this title. I know Marcel for a long time. We practise
together in tournaments. The match was really close."
Granollers: "It was a tough match for
both. I think we played solid and I made a few mistakes.
I didn't deserve to win the title...It was a big battle
today and unfortunately I didn't win the match.
"I'm happy with the week. I won three matches. I go to
Monte-Carlo with confidence and I will try to play like
(I did) this week."
