11-5 in the 71-minute final under the chandeliers of Grand Central

“That was the biggest match of my career and to win it is incredible.
Coming here this week, I didn’t expect to win the championship, but this
is what you work for every day.

stay disciplined and go through all of that.
“For that to pay off, in New York, in Grand Central Terminal, with the
Tournament of Champions title - it’s unbelievable."
