WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID  

David Ferrer: “I am very happy for this title. I cannot describe it with other words. It’s very hard to win back-to-back titles, and this tournament in Buenos Aires is always very tough. I am very proud.”

On the state of tennis in his country: “Spanish tennis is going through a marvelous time. In the last 10 to 15 years, there [have been] great tennis players. There are always a couple of players in the Top 10 and because of that, since 2009, there have been only Spanish players winning this tournament.” 

Stanislas Wawrinka: “I think David was better today. He was a little bit stronger than me and he deserved the victory. But I'm really happy with my week. It was important to play well and win some great matches, especially the semi-final yesterday. It was a great week for me so I need to take the positives from that.”

Fabio Fognini: “Right now, I’m really happy because we had a great week and won our second title together. Outside the court, we are friends, which is important. We hope to play well in Acapulco and will try to do our best.”
