WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Djokovic: It's very satisfying for my team and myself to conclude this fantastic season with a [Barclays ATP] World Tour Finals win. I never got to the final of this tournament in London. The furthest I got is the semi-finals a couple years ago where I lost in straight sets to Roger. I wasn't really feeling this surface very well in the past couple of years. But this year has been different. I got motivated, got a little bit more physically fresh. I wanted really to fight and I really wanted to get as far as I can in this tournament. Winning all the matches I played makes it even more special.

I was playing really great tennis throughout the whole week. Tonight, whenever I needed to, I came up with some really good shots. I really focused myself to get every ball back in the court. So I cannot be more thrilled than I'm feeling now.

Federer: Today we had times where we had longer rallies, we had times where we had shorter rallies. I think we had some great stuff out there. It was good playing such points. I think the quality was good. I shouldn't have been broken as often as I was broken today. But then again, that obviously has something to do with Novak, as well. It was extremely close today.

I think its been a fantastic season to be part of. Four different Grand Slam champs. Then having the Olympics, as well, was obviously very unique. Im very happy I stayed injury free throughout. That allowed me to basically play a full schedule almost. Im very pleased that I was able to pick up my performance at the end of the season, like I played now this week, so obviously gives me confidence for next year.

Granollers: We finished here winning the title, so it's incredible for us. We try to play as best as we can always. I think we have a very good relationship. So, I think, that's one of the keys of our success.

Bhupathi: Its always tough playing them. They're not a conventional doubles team. They make it very, very difficult in more ways than one, no matter who they play. We were expecting that. We fought hard to stay in the match. We got ourselves again into a Match Tie-break. This time I think we just played a bad tie-break. That sums it up.
