All-Spanish Final Set for Casablanca

(April 12, 2014) CASABLANCA – The semifinalists took to the court on Saturday in Casablanca to battle it out for a place in Sunday’s final. World No. 36 Marcel Granollers, the highest ranked player left in the draw, faced sixth-seed Federico Delbonis for the second time. In the pair’s lone meeting in Gstaad last year it was the Spaniard who emerged victorious in straight sets. On Saturday it also seemed to become a pretty quick affair for the 28-year-old from Barcelona. Granollers was in total control of the opening set, as Delbonis simply hit too many unforced errors. Consequently, the Spaniard broke his opponent’s service three times to take the first set in the seventh game in only thirty minutes. The Argentine started to get into the match when he capitalized on his very first break point in the third game of the second set. Granollers, however, was the more consistent player gaining the break back in the eighth game to finally take the match two games later winning it 6-1, 6-4 in 74 minutes.

I played a solid match today without any mistakes and also served well,” the winner told afterwards. “In the beginning of the second set Federico started to play better. It was tough, as he gained an early break and was 2-0 up. He was hitting very hard from the baseline but I kept fighting and I’m very happy to reach the final here,” Granollers added.

In the second semifinal eighth-seeded Guillermo Garcia-López took on the tournament’s surprise break out star Roberto Carballés-Baena for the first time. The latter became the first qualifier to reach the final in Casablanca since Gilles Simon defeated Andrey Kuznetsov in 2008. In the beginning of the encounter, the Spanish youngster seemed to be tired and exhausted after a long week and so Garcia-López was in total control in the opening set winning the frame in the eighth game. Yet, Carballés fought back, won some spectacular rallies and took the second set in the tie-break.

The crowd fully backed the underdog but in the end it was the more experienced player, who advanced into his first final of the season. The 30-year-old from Albacete broke serve in the seventh game and eventually took the match winning 6-2, 6-7, 6-4 after a classy clay court fight over two hours and 47 minutes. “It was an even match today,” a lucky winner stated afterwards. “Roberto played really well, in particular in the tie-break he played his best tennis. I was happy to close the match in the ninth game,” Garcia-López said and is looking forward to the final against his fellow countryman. The last meeting between the two took place in Casablanca in 2010. Back then, Garcia López won in straight sets. “Tomorrow will be a different match. The last time I met Marcel here was in one of the opening rounds and now it will be a final,” the Spaniard said. “Marcel didn’t have a great start into the season but now with beginning of the clay court season, he plays really well. He will be very dangerous tomorrow and I have to play my best tennis,” Garcia-López explained.

Doubles ceremony

Earlier on Saturday, top-seeds Horia Tecau and Jean-Julier Rojer took their third team title beating Tomasz Bednarek and Lukas Dlouhy 6-2, 6-2 in only 56 minutes. The Romanian-Dutch combination didn’t drop a set this week. “Besides my home tournament in Bucharest, this event here in Casablanca is the one I played most on the ATP Tour,” Tecau said after lifting his third trophy in Morocco. “Casablanca is a special place, where I am pretty successful and I’m very familiar with everything here. It’s always a cosy feeling to come back,” the Romanian told the press.

Three Spaniards to Headline Casablanca Semis

By Florian Heer

(April 11, 2014) CASABLANCA – Quarterfinal Friday at the Complexe Sportif Al Amal started on Centre Court with 2010 finalist Victor Hanescu, who took on the tournament’s sixth seed Federico Delbonis for the first time.

The 32-year-old Romanian upset Casablanca’s top-seed and world number 19, Kevin Anderson, winning in straight sets 6-4, 6-4 in the round before on Wednesday. Delbonis, who has struggled on hard courts this year without winning one single match so far, but posted a 9-3 record on clay. So the 23-year-old started with confidence in this match, coming back from one break down to convert his first set point taking the opening set in the tie-break. Delbonis broke in third game of the second set again winning 7-6, 6-3 in one hour and 40 minutes. The Argentine, who recently won his maiden title on the ATP World Tour in Sao Paulo, advanced into his only third career semifinal.

Next it was time for the Spaniards to step into action. Yesterday three of four players from the Iberian Peninsula advanced into the quarterfinal. Traditionally, Casablanca seems to be a good venue for the Spanish players, as in the past three years with Tommy Robredo and two-time Pablo Andújar, all title winners came from Europe’s southwest. The tournament’s fourth seed Marcel Granollers faced Pablo Carreňo-Busta for the first time. The latter found answers to the aggressive and attacking tennis of Granollers and took the opening set in the tie-break with two cross court passing shots. From then on, however, it was the world number 36 from Barcelona, who took command in this match. Granollers gained the second set in the ninth game and even bageled his fellow countryman in the final frame winning 6-7, 6-3, 6-0 in two hours and 22 minutes.

“Fighting for every point until the end of the match was the key to success today,” Granollers told media afterwards.

“The first set lasted one hour and fifteen minutes and it was very tough to lose the set after this time. Nonetheless I kept fighting and in the end I think that I played a very solid match,” the Spaniard said. “It is also never easy to play against a fellow countryman. We practice together in Barcelona and so we know each other very well,” Granollers added.

“Tomorrow I’ll try to play as good as I did yesterday and today. Federico is a very strong player but I’ll try to keep focused on my game and of course to win the match,” the 27-year-old stated about his upcoming semi-final match against Federico Delbonis.

In the next match on Centre Court Benoit Paire went up against Guillermo Garcia-López for the third time. The Frenchman was leading the head to head series 2-1 before the encounter but it was the 30-year-old from Albacete, who drew first blood breaking his opponent’s service in the fifth game. Paire, who was backed by the majority of the crowd evened score in the sixth game but lost his service again in the eleventh game and therewith the set. The match was full of emotions and in the end it was the Spaniard, who stayed focused winning 7-5, 7-6 in one hour and 37 minutes to reach his first semi-final in Casablanca.

“I’m very happy with this win today. Reaching the final four at an ATP Tour event is always a great achievement,” Garcia-López was pleased with his performance. “Benoit is French and we are in Morocco, so it’s normal that he got a very good support today by the crowd but we are tennis players and need to stay focus during the match. I think it was ok,” the Spaniard told about the atmosphere.

Paire was also happy that he has returned to the circuit after his injury. “The most important thing for me is that I’m back on court. I didn’t play very well today but it’s normal after a rest of three month. I lost but I’m happy,” the French said. “I could gain some confidence from this week – not about my game – but I’m positive with my knee. I can play without any pain and that I can go to Monte Carlo now,” Paire added.

In the final match of the day qualifier Roberto Carballés-Baena met lucky loser Andrey Kuznetsov for the first time. The Russian replaced Gael Monfils in the draw reached his second quarterfinal in Casablanca when his second round opponent Jiri Vesely withdrew with illness. Kuznetsov made a disappointing start into this match losing his opening service game and the Spanish youngster was able to serve out in tenth to gain the first set. Carballès had to work hard for his points but played a solid game with great groundstrokes and a lot of confidence. After 88 minutes the Spaniard served the match out winning 6-4, 6-2 to advance into his first ever ATP World Tour semi-final. “I’m very happy with today’s match,” Carballés told me afterwards. “I felt a bit tired with my legs after two hard matches yesterday and today but finally everything went very well. This has been my best week in my career so far and of course I’m totally happy,” the 21-year-old qualifier concluded.

(April 10, 2014) CASABLANCA – Six second round matches took place on Thursday at the Grand Prix Hassan II in Casablanca. In warm but misty conditions, yesterday’s ATP World Tour first-time winner Roberto Carballés-Baena opened a bid for a place in the quarterfinals by taking on fifth-seeded Joao Sousa, who currently sits at a career high No. 38 in the ATP Rankings. The Portuguese became the first player from his country to break into the top 50. Sousa also won the two previous meetings between the two in straight sets on Future level back in 2011.

Thursday it became a more even affair and the two first sets had to be decided in a tie-break. It was a classic clay court match with long an intense rallies, eventually with the better ending for the 21-year-old from Tenerife. Carballés-Baena gained two breaks in the final set to take the match winning 6-7, 7-6, 6-2 in three hours and thirteen minutes.

The Spaniard will face Andrey Kuznetsov next. The lucky loser from Russia, who replaced the tournament’s actual second seed, Gael Monfils, defeated Jiri Vesely 6-2, 3-1 on court two when the Czech was forced to retire due to sickness after only 44 minutes.

Back on centre court was a crowd favorite, Benoit Paire has returned to tournament play for the first time since the Australian Open after recovering from a knee injury. The Frenchman advanced into the quarterfinal in Casablanca for the last two consecutive years and repeated this achievement through a victory against Albert Montaňés in one hour and 37 minutes winning 6-4, 5-7, 6-4.

Pablo Carreňo-Busta defeated another player, who collected his first ATP World Tour win yesterday, Aleksandr Nedovyesov. The world No. 64 from Spain recovered from a set down and finally had the better ending in winning 3-6, 6-1, 7-6 in one hour and 50 minutes.

The 22-year-old from Gijón will face compatriot Marcel Granollers. The latter defeated Albert Ramos in an all-Spanish-affair 6-3, 7-6 in 100 minutes in the final match of the day. Granollers convinced with aggressive tennis and also some solid serve and volley play. It was the first time since Chennai that the 27-year-old from Barcelona did not fall in his opening match.

A fourth Spaniard will complete in Friday’s quarterfinals when Guillermo Garcia-López took out Carlos Berlocq winning 6-2, 7-5 in one hour and 53 minutes.

Dustin Brown Upsets John Isner in Houston

 

 

Dustin Brown

(April 9, 2014) No. 101 Dustin Brown of Germany overcame missing two match point opportunities in the second set to regroup to and defeat top seed and defending Houston champion American John Isner on Wednesday night 6-4, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (4) in the second round of the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship.

For Brown it was his first career win against a top-10 player.

“I’ve had a lot of matches where I’ve played good tennis, where I was close, and you’ve just got to keep playing,” Brown said after the match. “I’ve got to play my tennis. If I start playing the tennis (his opponent) wants, that’s not good for me.”

Brown double faulted on a match point in the second set tiebreak.

“That’s just repetition of being in these situations, in matches against these guys. I’m really happy that this time I won it.”

“He’s been in these situations much more often than me, I got a little tight in the second set, maybe at the end of the third, so I had to try to keep playing. It feels unbelievable.”

World No. 9 Isner was apologetic I regard to his performance – “pathetic performance – I’m sorry you had to see that,” said the American to a tournament official.

“I just didn’t feel it tonight,” he said.

Brown will face off against Isner’s countryman Sam Querrey next. Querrey defeated seventh seed Lleyton Hewitt 6-3, 6-4.

Sixth seeded Juan Monaco of Argentina reached an ATP milestone winning his his 200th career match on clay.
