Andy Murray Closes the Gap on No. 1 with Vienna Title

Tsonga Murray 8814

(October 30, 2016)Andy Murray has closed the gap in race for the No. 1 ranking when he won his third straight ATP title at the Erste Bank Open in Vienna on Sunday. The Scot beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 7-6 (6)in the final for his seventh title of the year, 42nd of his career.

Murray can move into the No. 1 spot if he wins next week’s Paris Masters and Novak Djokovic doesn’t reach the final.

“I get a step closer with every win but it’s still a long way from here,” Murray said. “From two to one seems a small jump in a way but it’s the hardest one to make. To go from 100 to 50 is more spots but is a lot easier.”

“I felt like I was controlling the ball a lot better, said Murray. “I think I played my best tennis today of the tournament… Jo fought well and started playing a lot better. He was more aggressive and taking some more chances and making the shots.”

“The tie-break was really, really tight. I think it was a high-level tie-break. There wasn’t really many mistakes… The last few months have been very good.”.

“I’m really happy with my week,” Tsonga said. I played good tennis. I fought until the end, and that’s most important for me… It was nice to play five matches in a row like this. It hasn’t happened to me many times these last couple of months. For me, I think it’s great. It’s always good to play against those [top] players.”

The Scotsman now trails World No. 1 Novak Djokovic by just 415 points in the Emirates ATP Race To London heading into the final week of the ATP World Tour regular season.

Cilic fh

(October 30, 2016) In a repeat of the 2014 US Open final, Marin Cilic beat Kei Nishikori 6-1, 7-6 (5) to win the Swiss Indoors title in Basel on Sunday.

This is the Croat’s second title of the year and 16th of his career. The world No. 12 also won the Masters title in Cincinnati. The win keeps him in last spot to qualify for the ATP Tour Finals in London.

 

“Today on the court I had really good energy and was quite positive and motivated,” said Cilic. “There were a lot of things at stake for me and looking ahead to the [Emirates ATP] Race To London, this match can decide a lot. I was really motivated to be focused on every point. I was extremely happy and proud with how I help the energy up for those two sets.

“I’m really grateful for my team for giving me good energy and we’re looking to do more and always improve. When you have a week like this, it’s worth more and I’ll definitely enjoy this. It’s the first at the 500 level and now I have trophies from all the different categories. Next week is Paris and it’s another important week for the Race To London and to finish the season well. I hope to play well there.”
“In the second set, I was a little tight,” Nishikori said. “I had a couple set points and couldn’t convert. He played good tennis today.

“It was a good week for me, playing another final. I had some good wins. It will be important to have another good week in Paris and again in London. That will be my last goal of the year.”

ATP SANCTIONS KYRGIOS

LONDON – Following the completion of its investigation into Nick Kyrgios’ second round match last week at the Shanghai Rolex Masters, the ATP has announced that Kyrgios has been found to have committed the player major offense ‘Conduct Contrary to the Integrity of the Game.’

The offense means that Kyrgios receives an additional fine of US$ 25,000, and is suspended from ATP tournaments for eight tournament weeks, effective from today, Monday 17 October, 2016, through to Sunday 15 January, 2017.

However, the suspension will be reduced to three tournament weeks upon agreement that the player enters a plan of care under the direction of a Sports Psychologist, or an equivalent plan approved by ATP, meaning Kyrgios could regain eligibility to compete on the ATP World Tour or Challenger Tour from Monday 7 November, 2016.

Kyrgios had already been fined a total of US$ 16,500 for breaches of the ATP Code of Conduct by the ATP Supervisors on-site in Shanghai. He received the on-site maximum fine of US$ 10,000 for violations of the Best Efforts provision in the Code, as well as a US$ 5,000 fine for Verbal Abuse of a Spectator, and a US$ 1,500 fine for Unsportsmanlike Conduct.

Today’s announcement completes the ATP’s investigation into this matter which, following the conclusion of the on-site process, included further review of the match, as well as comments made during Kyrgios’ post-match press conference.

Tennis Australia statement regarding Nick Kyrgios

“Tennis Australia will support the ATP sanction on Nick Kyrgios following recent events in Shanghai.

“Nick’s health and wellbeing is a priority and the ATP has offered a reduced penalty on the provision that he seeks appropriate professional advice, which he has agreed to do.

“Nick understands the gravity of his actions, has shown remorse and expressed a willingness to improve.

“We believe it’s our responsibility to help Nick, along with all our young athletes, improve both professionally on court as a player, and personally. We have always offered assistance and advice to Nick and his team and will continue to do so.”

Andy Murray wins Shanghai Masters for Sixth Title of the Year

(October 16, 2016)

Andy Murray won his sixth title of 2016 when he defeated surprise finalist Roberto Bautista Agut 7-6(1), 6-1 for the Shanghai Masters crown on Sunday. It’s his 13th Masters Series 1000 title.

Bautista Agut upset No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the semifinals on Saturday. The Spaniard was trying to win his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title and third title of the season.

The win narrows Djokovic’s lead over Murray in the “Race to London” to just 915 points.

 

For the 29-year-old Scotsman, Murray, it’s his 41st career ATP World Tour title, placing him in 15th place on the all-time list.

 

“I did feel like I played better this week than last week,” Murray said. “In all of the matches I was hitting the ball pretty clean.”

“The most important thing to reach No. 1 is to be extremely consistent throughout the whole year, which I have done really since the clay-court season,” Murray said. “I believe I can get there. I definitely believe I can get there. These last few months have proved that to me… I’ll give it my best shot to do it, because I may never get another chance.”

 

“I think it was a close first set,” Bautista Agut said. “It was not easy for me to handle all the emotions I had this week. For me, it was not easy to feel perfect on the court and in my first final appearance at a Masters 1000,” Bautista Agut said. “But I think I gave everything on the court today.”

“I’m going to learn from all the success I had this week.”

Jack Sock

Jack Sock

In the doubles, Americans John Isner and Jack Sock won their first Masters title as a team, beating Henri Kontinen and John Peers 6-4, 6-4.
“We both definitely prefer singles, but we also have a lot of fun playing with each other in doubles,” Isner said. “I think that’s the No. 1 reason why we did so well this week is because we are having a lot of fun with it.”

“It’s always fun playing with a good friend,” Sock said. “John is probably my best friend on tour… Like he said, we just had a lot of fun. Laughed a lot. Kept it light out there. I think that’s why we played pretty well.”

With Kitzbuhel Title, Paolo Lorenzi Becomes Oldest First-Time ATP Winner

 

Paolo Lorenzi

Paolo Lorenzi

(July 23, 2016) Fourth seed and 48th ranked Paolo Lorenzi of Italy became the oldest first-time winner on the ATP World Tour beating Georgia’s Nikoloz Basilashvili 6-3, 6-4 in Kitzbuhel on Saturday.

The Italian’s only other final came in March 2014 when he lost in Sao Paulo to Federico Delbonis. At 34 years, 7 months, he has beaten the record set by Victor Estrella Burgos in February 2015 for oldest first-time winner on the ATP World Tour. Estrella Burgos was 34 years, 6 months when he won Quito.

 

The 123rd-ranked Basilashvili made some history of his own by becoming the first player representing Georgia to reach an ATP World Tour final.

 

“I think it’s great to win an ATP World Tour trophy,” said the victor. “I don’t look at the age, so I don’t mind if it’s happening at 34.”

“Winning one trophy was a goal for this year, so it’s great for me. I hope this is not the last,” said Lorenzi. “I’m changing a lot. I need to be more aggressive and improve a lot of things, so this is just the start.”

“I couldn’t handle my nerves today,” said the 24-year-old Basilashvili. “I was very tight, very nervous. I couldn’t handle the pressure, but I think I played great this week and we’ll see for the future.”

 

“This is a present for me. I think it was a fantastic week,” said the winner. “Today I was playing really good. I am really happy with this win.”

“I think it was a great week for both of us. He’s a lot younger so he will have a lot of time for winning,”

 

Lorenzi is the first player this year to win both an ATP World Tour and ATP Challenger Tour title, winning Challengers in Canberra and Caltanissetta.

He is the third-oldest champion this season on the ATP World Tour, behind 37-year-old Newport winner Ivo Karlovic and Quito victor 35-year-old Estrella Burgos.

Wawrinka, Thiem, Garcia and Bertens Win Last French Open Warm-up Tournaments

227 Wawrinka fistpump and yell

(May 22, 2016) Defending French Open champion Stan Wawrinka comes into the second major of the year by winning the Geneva Open beating Marin Cilic 6-4, 7-6(11) in the final. This is the Swiss’ 14th career title.

The Geneva title also gives Wawrinka his first career crown in Switzerland. Wawrinka had played for the singles title in Gstaad in 2005 and for the doubles title there in 2004 and 2008 but lost all three times.
“It’s a dream come true to be able to win a title in Switzerland, after all these tournaments and winning Davis Cup, said the world No. 4 and third seed at Roland Garros. “To be able to do it here in Geneva, in the event’s second year is something special. The fans were great. They made a lot of noise today.

“Marin is a great player. Of course he’s had some injury problems of late but he’s the type of player who can always step up against the best in the world. He really ramped up the pressure toward the end, with those set points, so it was nice to be able to finish off the match.”

Kiki Bertens, a qualifier beat Mariana Duque-Marino 6-2, 6-2 to win the Nuremberg tournament on Saturday. Bertens knocked out the top seed, Roberta Vinci in the second round of the German

Caroline Garcia made her country happy on Saturday beating veteran Mirjana Lucic-Baroni of Croatia 6-4, 6-1 to win the Strasbourg International for the second title of her career.

Lucic-Baroni played the final of this event 19 years ago against Steffi Graf.

In a battle between up-and-comers on the ATP tour, top seed Dominic Thiem of Austria beat German 19-year-old Alexander Zverev 6-4, 3-6, 6-0 to defend the Nice Open title for his third ATP trophy of the year.

This is Thiem’s 6th career title.

“It’s been an unbelievably great week,” Thiem said. “The first time I had to defend a title and I made it. Maybe I played better in the three matches before this, but a final is always special. You have so much to win and so much to lose. I played a solid third set and I’m really happy. My arm is a little tired, but I will be ok for Roland Garros on Monday.”

The French Open begins on Sunday.

Schwartzman, from Argentina rallied from 2-5 down in the second set before marching on to the victory.

It was a career week for Schwartzman, beating top seed Bernard Tomic in the second round and saving a match point in the final eight.
“It was an amazing match for me,” said the winner. “I played well and fought all match. What happened to Grigor with the cramps also happened to me in Australia this year. With my doubles final and title in singles, it’s amazing.

“I’ve practiced really hard to improve my tennis. I played all the points with 100 per cent effort and I need to. All the matches are tough, against Tomic, Dzumhur and Bagnis. I played really well.”

 “I started cramping at 5-2 in the second set, said the Bulgarian runner-up. “It was very unfortunate that I couldn’t close out the match. I have to give credit to Diego.

“I have two big events coming up and hope that I can face one of the top guys there. There will be some altitude in Madrid and I won’t have much time to get ready, but I like it there.”

“Unbelievable. Great story the whole week,” said the champion. “Great performance. Huge final… I’m very happy and pleased with my performance.
“I think it was another great final in Munich.”

“It was a very close final, attractive for the crowd, for sure,” Thiem said. It was very painful for me but Philipp was the better player today, and he deserves to win.
“Almost every final is close because both players never give up. They want to win the title. I’ve won the last five finals… now I’ve lost one. It’s no tragedy, especially against Philipp.”

(April 10, 2016) Federico Delbonis defeated Borna Coric 6-2, 6-4 to win Grand Prix Hassan II for his second career ATP World Tour title on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Argentine, who was the fourth seed, did not lose a set all week in Marrakech. He adds this title to his 2014 Sao Paulo crown.

The third seed and rising star Coric, ranked at 48th in the world lost his second career final. The 19-year-old Croat lost his first final to Stan Wawrinka earlier this year in Chennai.

“I’m very happy to win again on the ATP World Tour,” Delbonis said. “I played at a great level today and it’s great to lift the trophy here. I took my chances, but it was not easy. In the end, I did my job and got the victory. This is what I work for. To win at this level, you have to be mentally focused the whole match.”

“It was a tough match for me today,” noted Coric. “I didn’t find any solutions. I had an opportunity in the second set but unfortunately I couldn’t break him. Nevertheless, I’m happy with my start in the clay season and I’m looking forward to Monte-Carlo next week.”

With the win, Federico Delbonis will return to the Top 40 of the ATP World Tour rankings.

Nick Kyrgios Wins Open 13 for First ATP World Tour Title

 

(February 21, 2016) Nick Kyrgios captured his first career ATP World Tour title defeating fourth seed Marin Cilic 6-2, 7-6 (3) in the Open 13 final in Marseille on Sunday.

This was Kyrgios’ second final, he lost to Richard Gasquet in the Estoril title match last year.
The 20-year-old Australian did not lose a set or his serve during the tournament. He closed out the match with an ace. He beat three top 12 players in succession – No. 10 Richard Gasquet in the quarterfinals, No. 8 Tomas Berdych in the semifinals and No. 12, the 2014 U.S. Open champion Cilic in the final.

He is the first player under of 21 to defeat two Top Ten players in consecutive matches since Juan Martin del Potro did it at the 2009 U.S. Open  when the Argentine beat Rafael Nadal in the semifinals and Roger Federer in the final.

“I played my first final last year and was looking for my first title,” Kyrgios said. “But I didn’t really expect to win this title this week after having a couple of weeks off. But from the first round I started playing really well and just gained confidence as I kept winning matches.

“I think I served really, really well again. I was serving really well all week. I didn’t get broken once. That was the main thing that was good. And I was able to put pressure on my opponents’ serves a lot when I was going through my service games really quickly.”

“I felt I was getting much closer in that second set,” said the 27-year-old Croatian finalist. “Every game was becoming a little more intense. I felt also that he was becoming a bit more frustrated, which was good for me. I had a chance at the end of the second set to get the break, but he managed to play well.

“I think he played really, really well today. He served amazing. It was difficult also from the back of the court. I think he was returning well, making a lot of returns in the first set. I didn’t adjust well enough on the balls that were coming back.

“But I’m really satisfied with the week. It’s really good moving forward and it’s important for me. Nick was playing high-level tennis in the end, but I wasn’t playing too bad either and that’s something good I can take from the match.”

Kyrgios, who is ranked No. 41 in the world will see his ranking move into the low thirties.
