“We went in with no expectations this week. We just enjoyed playing, took it match by match, and had a great tournament. It’s a great city, a great place, and I really enjoyed playing here,” said the 30-year-old Bhambri, as quoted by ATP.com.
Harris, delighted with their achievement, highlighted the fun they had on the court and expressed his gratitude for the unexpected opportunity. “I didn’t even know I was going to play this week. For me, it’s just all a bonus. Super stoked with the title,” added Harris. He also became the first South African to win an ATP Tour title since Raven Klaasen’s victory in Seoul last year.
