It is just an unbelievable feeling and I am very happy.”
It was the first triumph for Gille and Vliegen on the ATP-Tour.
“We have been playing together a long time, progressing through Futures, Challengers and occasionally ATP Tour events, but [I have] no words yet. We need some time to process this,” said Vliegen.
