WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Youzhny:
“It is a really good tournament and has a great atmosphere.”

Ferrer:
“The truth is that Youzhny played very good. He sliced and served very well. He was more comfortable than me on court, I was missing touch.”

Peya:
“At the end, when you're down 6-9 with Bob [Bryan] serving, the chances are not big you're going to turn it around. We managed to hang in there and we're standing here with the trophy. [We're] very, very happy."
