WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID
“It's amazing to win in Hamburg again… It's like home here and I feel very comfortable. I like the city and I always play well here,” he said. “It's something special about this sport. I lost in qualifying and then beat the No. 1 seed Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the first round. It also happened last week in Umag with Rublev. Now I took the opportunity.”
“I'm very happy with my performance this week, especially to be in the final of a 500 tournament,” he said. “It was a big match and a big fight. A very nice week for me. Maybe I got a little tired at the end and Leo played incredibly well. He deserved to win.”
“It was great. We played a really, really good level here all tournament. We had tough matches, from the first round.”
“I think overall we played a good match. I think we were just serving much better than they were.”
