“I did feel like I played better this week than last week. In all of the matches I was hitting the ball pretty clean.”

“The most important thing to reach No. 1 is to be extremely consistent throughout the whole year, which I have done really since the clay-court season,” Murray said. “I believe I can get there. I definitely believe I can get there. These last few months have proved that to me… I’ll give it my best shot to do it, because I may never get another chance.”

Bautista Agut
“I think it was a close first set. It was not easy for me to handle all the emotions I had this week. For me, it was not easy to feel perfect on the court and in my first final appearance at a Masters 1000,” Bautista Agut said. “But I think I gave everything on the court today.”

“I’m going to learn from all the success I had this week.”

“We both definitely prefer singles, but we also have a lot of fun playing with each other in doubles. I think that’s the No. 1 reason why we did so well this week is because we are having a lot of fun with it.”

“It’s always fun playing with a good friend. John is probably my best friend on tour… Like he said, we just had a lot of fun. Laughed a lot. Kept it light out there. I think that’s why we played pretty well.”
