WHAT THE PLAYERS
"I feel good. I think for the moment I don't really
realize what I achieved this week, but it's a big
achievement for me.
"It's completely different
than before when I won in Paris. In Paris it was the
first time, in front of my family, all my friends,
everybody. Here I just did it with my level, with my
game. I played well all week. I beat many good guys.
It's a big achievement because I worked really hard to
come back from my knee injury last year."
"Today was just difficult in terms of rhythm from the
baseline, so it was like a new tournament for me. No
excuses. I think [Tsonga] played really solid and well
when he had to and I think he served well overall, which
was key for him."
"I'm overall pretty happy that
I made the finals in my first tournament back on hard
courts... I know what I need to work on the next few
days and next few weeks."
"[Qualifying for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals] was
always our goal from the beginning of the year. We
experienced it last year and when you experience it once
you want to go back no matter what. We're in a good
position. There's a lot of good tennis for us this
"[It was] a lot of hard work. We managed to do
everything right this week and from the beginning we
didn't drop a set. We're serving really well, which is
very important for our game and rest is just playing
solid and staying very positive."
