WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Kohlschreiber:
"It was great that I could handle the pressure as the top seed. I had some tough and tricky opponents this week, so I am very happy to have won. I gained a lot of confidence. I play some of my best tennis in Germany, where I have great support. The crowd gave me extra motivation and helped me when I got nervous."

Karlovic: "At the beginning he played unbelievably well. I was struggling a little bit with a back problem, so I couldn’t hit as hard as I normally do. But it was a good week. I didn’t expect five matches here, so I am very happy to have reached the final."

Lipsky
: "It was a really close match. There were a lot of break points both ways. Each of us won a set and we played a very good 10-point [Match] Tie-break, getting out to a big lead and that helped us. We won the tournament, so it's a very good week for us going into Roland Garros."
