The Spaniard struggled a little bit with his form this year, but eventually, he managed to lift his first ATP Masters 1000 title in Montreal. Pablo Carreno Busta was solid whole week and he didn't hide his emotions after the victory. At the post-match press conference, he said:
"I know that during all the week we worked very hard, also the weeks before. It's very important to be very positive all the time. It's not my best season this year. I lost some matches that probably other seasons I didn't lose, but I just tried to continue believing in my team, in myself and in my game."
"I lost the first set, just one break, but you know when you play against these kinds of players who have a really good serve it's really tough to be there," Carreno Busta assessed. "But I just continued believing because I know that I was playing better and better. I tried to be aggressive with my serves and I could make two breaks, enough to be a winner."
