FINALS REVIEW – ROSOL SAVES 2 M.P. TO WIN CROWN; CABAL/FARAH CLAIM SECOND TITLE
•    Lukas Rosol earned his second ATP World Tour title after edging Jerzy Janowicz in three sets on Saturday. Rosol won his first trophy in Bucharest in 2013 (d. Garcia-Lopez).
•    The 29 year old fought off two match points as he served at 4-5 in the deciding set (30/40, Ad Out).
•    The Czech will climb six places to a career-high No. 27 in the Emirates ATP Rankings.
•    Janowicz was competing in his second final, almost two years after losing the 2012 BNP Paribas Masters final (l. to Ferrer).
•    Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah, who improve to a 2-5 record in finals, claimed their maiden title in February in Rio de Janeiro (d. Marrero/Melo).
•    Jamie Murray and John Peers were also seeking their second title of the season, having lifted the Munich trophy in May (d. Fleming/Hutchins).


WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Rosol: "I just focused on my games, especially while I was serving. I waited patiently to see if he would give me a chance on his serve, and he did. I didn’t start out well, but I finished strong."

Janowicz: "Losses happen. This is not my first - and hopefully will not be my last - final. I'm looking forward to the next tournament. I am playing well. I had a great week here in Winston-Salem."

Cabal: "We hope to keep up this level, play well and improve everyday. I hope that we have a good ranking at the end of the year. Our next goal is to win [an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event]."

Farah: "It was a great tournament. We played very well from the start. Today was a great match. We served very well and Sebas returned very well. That's why we came away with the big trophy."
