Champions Melzer and Petzschner
Q. How did that game feel?
PHILIPP PETZSCHNER: Yeah, great. I think we had a really
good start in the match. We played incredible tennis the
I think also the second set we were the much better team.
I think we just played one of our best matches out there
today. I think we deserved to win.
Q. You got together at the beginning of this year, am
JURGEN MELZER: Yeah.
Q. What do you attribute your games gelling together
JURGEN MELZER: Well, I think we're just two good tennis
players, two good singles players that, well, who proved
in the past that we could play doubles. It was just a
matter of how good we get together.
We won a tournament in the beginning of the year that
proves that we already played some good tennis there. And
then we just couldn't play because we had different
tournaments and a different schedule.
And, well, then here, it just got everything together and
we played great from the first round. Had one tough one
in the semis. But still I think we really played good,
good doubles the two weeks.
Q. What's the story with the ball? I saw you collect a
ball. What was that about?
PHILIPP PETZSCHNER: No, I said if we really win the
tournament, I take the ball where we win the match point
with. I take it home with a towel, the shirt, and I will
put it on my wall.
Then he said, Yeah, so what about me? So I said, Okay, we
take two balls. I gave one to him, one to me. There will
be someplace in my house. Yeah, that's the story behind.
Q. You played against Nadal in the early rounds. How
do you feel about tomorrow's final?
PHILIPP PETZSCHNER: I mean, they're the two best players
of Wimbledon this year playing against each other. I
don't know who is going to win.
I think the peoples will see a great finals. But actually
I don't care right now, to be honest.
Q. Is this the beginning of a long-term partnership?
PHILIPP PETZSCHNER: We see. I think we get along pretty
well, the two of us. We are friends also outside the
court. We're staying together in the same house the last
couple of days.
I think we could play a while. But you never know. I
think we fit good. We are good friends. So as long as
this stays, the friendship stays, I think we will play
Q. Jurgen, you also played against Rafa in the Roland
Garros semifinals. What do you think about the final?
JURGEN MELZER: Well, I think we are right here after we
won a Wimbledon doubles. I don't want to talk about
singles finals tomorrow.
