Novak Djokovic

First title of the year for Djokovic, his third Indian Wells title, 42th overall.

Djokovic:

I’m just very happy and thrilled to be able to win the first title in this season. It was the first final that I played this year. It was necessary for my confidence, and hopefully I can carry that into Miami and the rest of the season.

Federer:

A few weeks ago, months ago, a few people said I couldn’t play tennis anymore. So for me, I need to focus on my own game, on my own routines, hard work, make sure I keep a good schedule for myself. But at the same time, that fire, wanting to win, is important and right now I have that. I have a really good balance right now.

Flavia Pennetta

With a win 6-2 6-1 over Agnieszka Radwanska, Flavia Pennetta captured the biggest title of her career so far, her first since 2010, her 10th title overall.

After so many years and after a lot of hard work this is the moment I’ve been waiting for. It happened when I didn’t expect it, in fact, at the beginning of the week I would have never said that I would be in the finals or semi-finals, or even that I would have won. I waited for a long time and I finally won a trophy that counts.
