Thanks to Alexander Peya for playing with me this week in Shenzhen, China! So glad to get my fourth ATP World Tour doubles title of the year, after winning Delray Beach and Indian Wells with Raven Klaasen and Newport with Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi.
As I told ATPWorldTour.com, I’ve been on the wrong side of the court from Peya enough to know he’s a great player. I’ve actually lost to him five of the nine times we’ve played. So when he called me up to consider playing together, it was a great opportunity for both of us in China. I think we played some great tennis, and really played the big points well today in the final.
