Quotes from the news wire:
I am very sad to announce that I won't be able to play in Shanghai this year. It is the second year in a row and in China I have great fans, but, as you all probably know, I had an inflammation on my left wrist during the Laver Cup and I haven't had the time to recover and practice to be ready... I hope to be back in Shanghai for the 2020 tournament.
I played against a super-aggressive player. Today he went on court with the determination to not play tennis the way I understand tennis, (It) is not a negative point. Not at all. Believe me. He went on court probably doing a thing that works well for him, and he gives himself some chances. And he played smart and he played well.
It will be a very important loss for us, for the world of tennis, for the tour, for the fans, even for the rivals. that he has been part of a great rivalry between the. best players for a long time, and a great competitor, but that's life. Seems like he has not (had) a very long career because today players are playing that long.
Since 2011, I didn't play a final on grass, so finally to win a title again after five years on grass is very good news for my game, for my mentality too and at the same time is another title, at this point of the season for me, every victory is important, every title means a lot to me. This is not confidence for Wimbledon, this is an important victory for me and I'm happy for that today.
I'm very happy to be back. Queen's is a great event, I always enjoyed it, I had some great feelings there, the atmosphere of the club -- a real tennis club -- is very special, the courts are unbelievable and I'm very happy to be back, i enjoyed Halle but the results have not been perfect for me in Halle, so I want to try Queen's again where the grass courts are a little bit more similar to Wimbledon.
At the end, you know that you not going to be at 100 percent, so the most important thing when you are coming back is accept all the challenges, the weeks, months, that you didn't have the chance to be able to practice, to compete, accept that you're going to be a little slow, a little out of rhythm. You can practise a lot. I did. I practiced I think enough and with the right attitude, but at the end what you need is matches.
