“I’m very emotional for him being here, with my wife and my whole team.
“I had to trust myself. I have to be so grateful to everyone who has supported me in the last couple of years that haven’t been great.
“I was out of the tour for six months and fhad or the first time this kind of severe injury.
“I didn’t know what would happen. There were moments of doubt. I didn’t know if I could come back to the level to compete.
“This is the best place in the world to make my comeback. It’s a sacred, sacred place for tennis.
“I always dreamed of holding this trophy as as young boy. This is very special.”
Anderson said: “The first two sets, Novak beat up on me pretty bad.

“Playing against Novak is not easy. He is a true champion of our sport.”
Anderson had spent 21 hours on court just getting to the final and added: “I’m not feeling as fresh as I was coming here.
“We dedicate our whole lives to fight for a spot on this court. Over a long time there’s not many people who have had that chance.
“That’s what it takes for me to have that opportunity. I would have given another 21 hours to have the opportunity to play in front of you.”
