WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID
"It's always special to play
Roger. We know it's always a strange match, especially
being in the final here. He's my best friend on the
tour. We respect each other so much. I'm just trying on
the court to win the match. Before and after, we are
still very good friends. During the match, we just try
everything to win. Today I'm really happy to take that
"I can see that when mentally I'm there and
I'm fighting, I can play tennis, I can beat all the
players. I did an amazing job. I'm really happy after
winning my first Grand Slam to win a Masters 1000 so
quick. I didn't expect to. When I came here, for me it
was more like a test. I knew I was playing good tennis,
but I didn't expect to win because the draw was so
"I did see I was playing good tennis. It
was few little changes to take the advantage. I started
to play more aggressive, trying to push him more. When
you win a match like this, it's only one or two points,
especially in the tie-break. But I think I did a great
tie-break. I was serving big and being really
aggressive. Then I took the advantage at the beginning
of the third set. I saw that he was a little bit tired.
Me, I was playing better and better, especially moving
"I think it's one of the those
finals that I could have won. But Stan was tougher at
the end. I think he deserved it just a little bit more.
Clearly it would have been nice to win that second set
tie-break. I didn't necessarily play a bad one, but also
at the same time I didn't quite ever get into the lead
where things went my way.
"Of course, I'm very
happy for Stan. It's a huge win for him after winning
his first Grand Slam this year, also to win his first
Masters 1000. To take the opportunities when they're
there, that's key in a tennis player's career. So I'm
very happy for him.
"I would have loved to have
won a second title [this season] because I've come close
a few times. That's my next objective, that I get to the
very end more frequently. But clearly I'm happy that the
clay court season started so well for me."
“It's amazing to hit triple digits. It's a great
milestone to say that you have a hundred, to be the
first player to hit a hundred titles. Kind of snuck up
on us pretty quick. Last few years we've been really
hot. We always wanted to beat the Woodies' record of 61.
Then trying to clip Todd Woodbridge's 83 titles. All of
a sudden I’m at 99.
“It will feel a lot better
when we do it as a team. We've always looked at our
career as team titles, doing it together. That's the
huge goal for this year, to do it together."
