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.

Murray has always had the game to do well at the French and he's made a couple of semis and right now is playing with the most confidence I've ever seen him on clay, and Nishikori beat Novak at the U.S. Open in extreme heat, he did an unbelievable job and it's conceivable he could do that again.

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.
