Robredo Snaps Fognini’s Win Streak to Claim Umag Title

 

(July 28, 2013) Spanish veteran Tommy Robredo snapped Italian Fabio Fognini’s winning streak at 13, when the Spaniard won the Umag title 6-0, 6-3. It’s his second title of the year.

Robredo began 2013 at No. 114 in the world due to injury. The 31-year-old Spaniard, a former member of the top ten is now back in the top 30.

Thirteen ATP World Tour titles this season have now been won by players aged 30 and over, already matching last year’s total.

“I’m more than happy,” Robredo said. “I’ve been a professional for nearly 15 years and this is my 12th title, so there have not been many times with trophies. I love the emotion.

“Before the match, I was talking to my coach and I was saying, ‘It’s lovely to be waiting to play a final and you are nervous.’ Money can’t buy this feeling and I’m lucky to be part of this sport and lucky to have the chance to feel these feelings. I enjoy it and I know how to handle it.

“I played lovely. I played great. It was a perfect match. It’s not easy to play a final and I played very good. I served okay, I returned okay. To win today, I think I did a great job.”

“It was an incredible week,” said the losing finalist Fognini. “I go home with a lot of happiness. I’m a little bit disappointed, but even if you’re Roger or Rafa, you’re going to lose some time. I’ve played three incredible weeks and they’re going to stay in my head for the rest of my life.”

Youzhny Wins Gstaad, Murray/Peers Take Doubles Crown

YouzhnyMiami

(July 28, 2013) World No. 33 Mikhail Youzhny became the first Russian champion in 18 years at the Crédit Agricole Suisse Open Gstaad when he beat the Netherlands’ Robin Haase 6-3, 6-4 for the title. The Russian who is 31, joins a group of 30-plus players to win titles on the ATP tour. It’s the 12th time this year that an over 30 player has captured a title.

“I’m very happy, “ said the Russian. “When you win a tournament, it doesn’t matter how you’ve played or who you beat. My last title was at the start of last year in Zagreb, so it’s been quite long. I’m trying everything to try and play more consistently at a high level.

“When you see the score, it looks easy, but it wasn’t. It was only one break in each set and I didn’t have many chances to break him again. The last game on my serve was also very close.”

“I didn’t feel well last weekend and had some problems with my knee which was pretty swollen,: said the 57th ranked Haase. “And now I’m here as the runner-up and that’s great. I think that the altitude fits my game and that I can handle it well. It’s tough to play against Mikhail. He’s a great player and I never beat him.”

In the doubles, third seeds Jamie Murray and John Peers won their second ATP World Tour team title with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Pablo Andujar and Guillermo Garcia Lopez.

“It’s been good,” Murray said of their pairing. “We’ve been playing a few months now, working hard together to try and get the team as good as we can. We’ve had some good results and we’ll keep trying to go for the future.”

Murray and Peers first teamed up for a title back in February when they won Montpellier.

Main Draw Matches Underway at the BB&T Atlanta Open

 

By Tina Taylor-Brown

(July 23, 2013) ATLANTA, GA – Matches in the main draw of the BB&T started Monday night. American Ryan Harrison was able to advance regardless of losing his cool and dropping the second set. He finished with a win over Australia’s Marinko Matosevic. Rhyne Williams took out fellow American Denis Kudla. Both received a WC into the main draw.

 

Tuesday afternoon kicked off with qualifier Kevin King, former Tech player, against rank 69 Yen-Hsun Lu from Taipei. After dropping the first set 6-3, King played tougher in the second set and although getting broken after several deuces, he stayed mentally tough and broke right back for 3 all. He struggled to hold for 4-3. Then each player held with easy love games to reach 5-5. Lu earned another break and served for the match. When asked what were the keys to winning the match Lu replied, “I just tried to stay focused and not over play… he is a dangerous guy and I had to read his serve and get used to his lefty slice.”

 

Veteran Lleyton Hewitt defeated France’s Edouard Roger-Vasselin in straight sets. At the press conference, Hewitt spoke about making the transition to the hard courts from grass and despite a low serving percentage, serving well on the big points to capture the win.

 

Jack Sock fell to Columbia’s Santiago Giraldo in a well fought match 7-5, 6-4.  Number 1 doubles seeds and 2013 Wimbledon doubles finalist Dodig and Melo dismissed the American brother pair Ryan and Christian Harrison 6-3, 6-1.

 

The rain staved off the completion of the Mardy Fish and Michael Russell match twice with Fish up a set and down a break 2-4 in the second, and the other all American double header between James Blake and Tim Smyczek who sat down Donald Young in the 3rd round of the qualies.
