“We had a great week here, and played a lot of good tennis. We knew we had to have a good week if we wanted to be qualified for the final tournament in Turin. It has been a long year for us, but I think we are coming good at the right time. We played a lot of good tennis throughout the week”, – said the British tennis player.

 

“It is an amazing city, amazing tournament and courts. It is really nice to play here, I think we got inspiration for the beautiful place and the city. It is my first time here, I was quite amazed and impressed, so I think we brought a good energy into the court and managed to play a lot of good tennis”, – added Bruno.
