It's something special to be in a Masters Series final, indoors and especially if it's Madrid, which was one of my goals this year,
As long as I am in good form, I am able to win any match on both clay and hard.
I like playing on grass a lot, but I know it's not my best surface, it's a little bit fast.
I know I can play on hard courts. I need to improve my game on grass but if I play well on hard courts, I know I can win a lot of matches.
I cannot win this year but I can play good on grass
It is with very heavy heart that I have to announce my inability to play. I was eagerly looking forward to come to Chennai again and was very excited about playing there and trying to win seasons opening tournament.

I am young. For me, he is the best one of the best in history and the best now.
This is good for me, to be third in history on clay. One day I'm going to lose. I hope it's not next week (in Barcelona).
I've had an incredible two months and just hope I can now continue that by reaching the final here.
Even though I am unable to be present for it, I would like to offer 25,000 towards the chief minister's Relief Fund for this cause. I hope this contribution will help many families return to normalcy.
I spoke to him the other day and he said he'd love to be able to play in (the Masters Cup in) Shanghai and for the good of tennis I hope he's there,
This year is almost impossible to repeat,
I've not played for months because of an ankle injury, so the doctors advised me not to take any chances.
The record of Borg and Vilas I have thought about it.
I never thought I would win (this many tournaments) before the beginning of the year.
You can't compare me to Borg, he was the greatest tennis player of all time.
The doctors advised me not to take any chances. I would love to have played here in Rotterdam, all the more so because I've not played for a long time. But I have to be completely fit first. If I play, I want to give it all I have.
I'm really happy to be here. I've been out of the swing of things for a long time and I hope to get back into the rhythm with a few matches to regain my form.
I am very, very sorry that I cannot play in Sydney because I was looking forward to coming there for the first time.
Winning this match does not mean that everything is done. I'm very happy with my game, but I'm very aware of the fact that I can lose any time.
I know that...as time goes on in the tournament, the matches will get more difficult and I could lose at any time,
It was the first time in the tournament I was a bit nervous,
I always play well when the important match arrives. I hope that this time is not the exception.
I'd love to meet Agassi in the final but I learned my lesson a long time ago not to take anything for granted,
