WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID
Cilic: "It feels awesome, especially
after waiting for a long time last night and finishing
after 1am. Then, today to come back and win it, I’m
really happy with this victory."
"It wasn't easy
for my nerves, for Goran’s nerves especially. In the
final some nerves can get into your body and you have to
deal with it in the end. Luckily I found a way."
Anderson: "In the third [set], I just
didn't put down the clamps of getting back in the match
and giving myself a chance. He was going to take one of
his chances. He had a fair amount. If I would have
capitalised a little more I would have put myself in a
better position to win the title. I was happy making the
final, but a little disappointed right now.”
Bob Bryan: "[100 titles] is our next big
goal. We're very happy to kick start the year here in
Delray. Get that first [title] of the season, get that
confidence flowing and take it into the next couple of
Masters 1000s. It's been a few years since we won the
Miami tournament, so we want to put in a good showing
Mike Bryan: "[Nicklaus] is a good
friend. He's been to watch us at Wimbledon a few times.
He loves tennis. Bob won his tournament last year. He's
a great, great guy to know. We're huge fans of him. It
was good to see him in the front row."
