CARLOS ALCARAZ ON RETAINING HIS MUTUA MADRID OPEN TITLE - ‘For me it’s so special to lift the title here in Madrid, in front of my home crowd, in front of my family, my friends, it’s a thing I will never forget’.
JOURNALIST DAVID AVAKIAN ON JAN-LENNARD STRUFF’S REMARKABLE RUN TO THE FINAL IN MADRID - ‘He told me that he wasn’t an early riser like Carlos is, he wasn’t that good when he was younger and he’s been putting his game together over the years, 2019 is a year that he keeps pointing to as a great year for him, so it’s just a very careful way of building a career’.
JANNIK SINNER ON LORENZO MUSETTI - ‘It’s always tough to play against a friend and it’s tough for both of us when we have to play against each other. I feel like he is improving a lot and it’s always nice to see where the level is and I have the feeling that every time I play against him I can see where I have to improve and I can give him the same feeling’.
MATTEO BERRETTINI ON HAVING NEVER PLAYED JANNIK SINNER AT TOUR LEVEL - ‘In general our relationship is great, we text each other, we practice together, when we have the chance we play doubles together, so it’s really like a healthy relationship and we help each other to raise our level and that’s why it would be even better to play against each other’.
LLOYD GLASSPOOL AND HARRI HELIOVAARA ON THEIR SLIDING DOORS MOMENT IN ROME LAST YEAR - ‘Without it of course it would have been a different kind of spring because we would have had less points and probably wouldn’t get into one or two tournaments because our ranking wouldn’t have been that high, but most importantly we wouldn’t have had the confidence of beating the number one team in the world’.
