After the final, Pablo commented
“This year was very tough for me because of the injuries at the beginning of the yea. “I had a lot of time off the courts and it is really tough when you cannot play and enjoy this sport.
I just tried to continue working hard because I know when you work and do as much as possible, normally you have the prize. Now I am here with the trophy winning my fourth ATP Tour title and for me, it is the reason to continue fighting and playing this sport.”
