They always think about how to help me to win. Lifting this trophy at 36 is incredible. The work we do bears fruit. I'm proud. Thanks to my children and my family: they give me a lot of joy and serenity. Jannik played at home, but I want to say one thing.

Thanks to the crowd, because the Italians' passion for tennis is incredible. Whether it is in Rome or here it is always a spectacle: there is always a lot of interest and attention to watch the best in the world. I am honored and it is a pleasure to play here with you.
