Andy Murray: “I thought the standard of tennis was good today. There were a lot of high quality rallies and I had to change a few things. He started the match off very well and was extremely aggressive. I managed to start dictating a lot of points and used my forehand well."

When asked about Dimitrov's performance: “I thought he has a lot of variety. He seems a bit stronger than when I [last] played him. He seemed to enjoy the occasion, which is also important. It's his first final, and he came out and started the match extremely well, which is obviously a good sign. It will be interesting to see how the year goes for him.

“It's been a good start to the year, obviously. I trained hard to get ready for this period of the year. I hope that the Australian Open goes a bit better for me than it did last year.”

Grigor Dimitrov: “I think it was a great final. It was an amazing feeling to go out there today and be able to play tennis like that. I'm not a 100% satisfied, of course, but I have to say, ‘Well done to Andy’. He played some really, really good tennis when he had to. It was actually a lot of fun going out there today. I think we both did a great game.

“I didn't feel nervous actually at all. I just felt actually quite good. I slept pretty good last night, so I was like, ‘Wow, you're not that nervous before finals anymore’, even though it was my first at ATP[-level].”

Marcelo Melo: “We decided to play together just to see what would happen… We only decided at the beginning of December. If we have the opportunity to play again, for sure we will.”
