 It felt good from the start and was able to maintain that level of play. I never thought he got into the match at all. That gives you obviously even more confidence.

 He beat me fair and square tonight. No regrets from me. I think Andy was a bit better than I was tonight. I think overall he probably created more chances than I did. I had difficulties getting into his service games time and time again.

 Obviously, Novak goes in as the favourite, I would think, even though Andy beat him at the US Open. Andy's had an easy run until the semis, until tonight. Maybe, it's something that Andy needed going into the final. Novak is the double defending champion here. He's done really well again this tournament, digging himself out of the hole against Stan [Wawrinka], coming and playing good tennis against Berdych and Ferrer. So obviously a tough match again.

 We do a lot throughout the year by ourselves for our own charities. Obviously, it's great to be all together, in one place, for one cause, and that's the Great Ormond Street Hospital tonight. I'm happy that we're hopefully going to be able to raise a lot of money for the many kids that need it. I'm very thrilled and I hope we can raise a lot of money.

 Overall, I did feel my very best coming into the semis today. I was where I wanted to be, but ran into an opponent who was just better today. Still, it gives me a little bit of a lift coming into the grass-court season now.

 Really it's unbelievable that I never thought I would come so far. It's been a great week so far, and it's another opportunity tomorrow to make it even more special. Obviously conditions were tough today, and against one of my greatest rivals, it's always nice if you come out on top, so I'm very, very happy.

 It’s a tournament that I’ve grown to love a lot over the years... I used to like coming here, but I wasn’t a crazy golfer when I was younger or liked the peace and calmness. I was more a guy who liked New York or Miami or sort of places where something was happening, especially as a teenager, so when I came here it was almost a bit too quiet for me. As time went by, I like these weeks where it’s a bit more calm, weather’s nice, things slow down a bit before the hustle and bustle in other places… Obviously with the success that I’ve had, I started to spend more time here. I got to like it a lot. It’s a good place.
