WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Horacio Zeballos: “It's a dream for me. To be able to play a final against Nadal was already good enough for me. It's a moment that will stay in my memory for the rest of my life.”

On his run this week: “I've worked really hard because I really wanted to be at this level. For some months, I've been playing at a high level and I think I'm at the best moment of my career. I'm very strong physically and psychologically.”

Rafael Nadal: “It was a great tournament for me. If we take everything, it was positive. It's true I wanted to win the final but in wasn't possible. He made things better than me and I didn't play my best match. I just need to keep working, practising with hope, motivation and the right attitude to have better sensations every week. I hope it's the beginning of a lot of good things for me.”

Paolo Lorenzi: “I'm really happy because Potito and I are very good friends. It was a great victory for us against Monaco and Nadal. We hope to play in another tournament again as soon as possible.”
