After the victory, Grigelis spoke exclusively to the Lithuania Tribune about his recent period: “The last three weeks were great for me. Two singles titles and one final with losing in a tie break in the third set. After I won the title in the Lithuanian tournament, I am playing much better. I think that it came with confidence with winning a lot of matches. This week was tough physically for me because I played many matches in one day because of a rain delay. In the finals, I played my best match of the tournament.”
