"The beginning on grass is always tough. Playing two matches with three sets, too, but I was aggressive on court, trying everything to be successful on grass. I enjoy the fact that I am in a final on grass again after a few years and I try to be ready for tomorrow,”

“Of course, I always need improvement. That’s what I have had to do all my entire career. I have the motivation to come back to my best, maybe even stronger than I was before. I try the best to have a good second half of the season and to have a strong start into 2016. I am focused on that,”

“I do not care about the expectations coming from outside. I have been playing for 13 years on the tour now. It’s not about what the people are thinking, it’s about myself. During the first half of the season, I just didn’t find myself on court. I played with too many nerves. I am starting to feel better now and played good tournaments in Monte Carlo and in Rome. I am playing well here, too. That’s the most important thing for me. My level of tennis is there. I have not forgotten how to play tennis in six months,”

“It’s always great to play with a lot of people watching the matches. This happens here every day. That’s important for the tournament but also for the players. It’s a great atmosphere and we enjoy the support from the crowd. That’s a special thing,”

“I’m playing with the right intensity and waiting for my moment, I’m very, very happy to be in a final again"
“I’m enjoying again the tennis and every victory is important and being in the final is great news.”
"I think I'm playing well, It's important for me, after losing at Roland Garros, to keep going and have the right attitude, the right level of tennis in the next couple of weeks and that is what I am trying.
"I'm practising every day with a very positive attitude, working a lot of hours on court. I'm enjoying again the tennis and every victory is important and being in the final is great news."
"It’s a great feeling to be back in a final, especially on grass," said Nadal. "It’s been since 2011, I didn’t play a final on grass. So it’s very good to be back and I think I’m playing well. It was a tough match but I played well against a very difficult opponent.
"He’s a charismatic player and does different things on court… I just tried to be ready and wait for my moment. I was solid with myself.
"The victories are energy. I am enjoying practicing, I’m enjoying playing on court with all my game, which is something I missed a lot in the first half of the season.
"I feel I’m doing things better on court, playing more relaxed, enjoying a little bit more. And that’s the thing I need to do to have success in the game: work hard and be relaxed. That is what I’m doing and I hope to have a good second half of the season."
