    Stuttgart; Båstad; Manta Challenger (F) - July 13-19 Season I

    MercedesCup
    Final - Stuttgart

    Men's Singles (Seeds - Finals - Top Half - Bottom Half)
    Men's Doubles (Draw)

    World number nine Illya Altman has again pushed Daniel Paez Blanco to the brink, but fell short for the third time as the world number one increased his title count to eight with a three-set win in the MercedesCup final. Blanco looked to be in a hurry for his flight to Indianapolis early, and the Ukrainian didn't look in any position to stop him as the top seed blasted him off the court in a tremendous opening set. But just as the final looked to be a fizzer, Altman came out more determined in the second set as he and Blanco engaged in a test of wills. Surprisingly, it was the third seed who came out on top as he refused to be convincingly beaten; breaking the Blanco service to send the match to a decider. The two traded breaks of service as the world number one looked frustrated at his inability to capitalise on his brief leads; but he eventually managed to close to the door on Altman in the penulatimate game with some sharp forehands opening the court up for a break. Blanco eventually prevailed 6-1 4-6 6-4 to head into his first hard court tournament since ATP Masters Series Miami with an eighth title.

    Seeded players out: Illya Altman.

    Second seeds Ion Andueza and Sanchez Emelio completed the Spanish double as they edged out a tight contest against locals Manfried Manz and Walter Schiller. The Germans did enough to take the second set off the favourites in an entertaining display, before their game crashed and burned in the face of a hot-streak from the Andueza-Emelio combination. Claiming ten points in a row, the favourites completed their maiden career win by bagelling the locals in a disappointing match tiebreaker 6-4 5-7 [10-0].


    • Seeded teams out: None.



    Catella Swedish Open
    Final - Båstad

    Men's Singles (Seeds - Finals - Top Half - Bottom Half)
    Men's Doubles (Draw)

    Jefferson Drake's extraordinary run of form has continued as he belted Italy's Carlo Amato in the final of the Catella Swedish Open in Båstad. The third seed's fourth title of the season was no doubt his sweetest after his first three came in tournaments struggling for star power. There were no such criticisms here as Drake followed up his semifinal upset of Radivoj Daneu with a blistering display against Amato in the final. The Italian started well by taking an early break of service against last week's Newport champion, before Drake struck back immediately with venom. The world number thirteen showed no mercy in a clinical opening set which was decided 6-2. The second, whilst having an identical scoreline to the first, was vastly different as Drake surged to a 4-0 lead early. Whilst Amato managed to get on the board, it was all too little too late as Drake claimed his fourth career title 6-2 6-2. Even better for the CWLander was news that his victory propells him inside the world's top ten.


    • Seeded players out: Carlo Amato.



    After two unsuccessful attempts, Hayden and Ross Onwye have returned to the top of the world rankings with a maiden career title in their straight sets win over French Open champions Hugh James and Ralph Robinson. The win was all the more sweet for Ross Onwye, whose record in finals before this match stood at 0-4 (two in singles, two in doubles). Whilst the second seeds came into the match as favourites, they were unable to really impose themselves on the Moroccan team who haven't been troubled at all this tournament since a first set shock against Kim Nouri and Hans Langemar in the first round. In under two hours, Onwye and Onwye secured a 6-3 6-3 win.


    • Seeded teams out: Hugh James / Ralph Robinson.



    V Manta Open - Trofeo Ricardo Delgado Aray
    Final - Manta

    Men's Singles (Finals - Top Half - Bottom Half)
    Men's Doubles (Draw)

    Jojo Mustard's inability to produce big wins this week has finally come back to haunt him as he disappointingly fell in a three-set slog against Randy Bruce in the final of the V Manta Open in Ecuador. In a draining three-hour contest, Mustard suffered from fatigue associated with playing in both the singles and doubles draws where he has been denied easy wins. The top seed played good tennis in stages, but fell late in the first and third sets against the fresh American who claimed a maiden Challenger title with a hard-fought 7-6(5) 3-6 7-5.


    • Seeded players out: Jojo Mustard.



    There was some consolation for Mustard as he and Heath Davis claimed the doubles crown in their final against Tino Boytchuk and Rory Cross. Whilst the three-set win doesn't get them any ATP Race points, it gives them some confidence heading into the draw in Indianapolis starting this week. The top seeds looked the better pairing outside of a late loss of concentration in the second set; picking up their first title as a team 6-1 5-7 [10-6].


    • Seeded teams out: None.

    Wow, so awesome. Hopefully my run of form will continue into the Davis Cup time so I get a shot at it again.

    Drake pushing the Ox for best player in CW.. Should be an interesting race. Blanco, 8 wins, all on clay... A man about to be shown his flaws, one thinks.

    That was a heap of poo from Mustard. He should have won that final. At least he got some consolation in the doubles final. Mustard extends his thanks to Davis for a fine tournament together. Hopefully they can continue to play well together.

    Well done Drake, one of the form players on tour right now.

    Indianapolis draw released

    ATP World No. 1 Daniel Paez Blanco heads a stellar draw for the Indianapolis Tennis Championships which includes two Grand Slam champions and nine ATP World Tour champions. Blanco is set for a semifinal showdown against Wimbledon champion Darcy Cowan, but the dream matchup could be upset by the addition of injury plagued American Rick Henson. Elsewhere, the first round will see an amazing match between the Wimbledon runner up and a quarterfinalist at The Championships as Radek Spidla and Kim Vollan face off.




    Hamburg draw released

    The prestigious Hamburg Open gets underway with a stellar 48-strong field headed by former World No. 1 Jason Hall. Hall faces a tough assignment in the quarterfinals if he wants to claim his second clay title of the season with World No. 10 Illya Altman looming likely. Elsewhere, Radivoj Daneu will look to avenge his semifinal loss last week in Båstad, but may be stopped as early as the third round with a match against the returning Li Wang the likely outcome. After missing the tournament in Båstad last week, CWLand's Sven Oxenstierna will look to prove his credentials against an all-star cast; a quarterfinal showdown with countryman Randy Smeltz a real possibility as the World No. 19 looks set for a Stuttgart rematch against Dwayne Murdoch. Whilst the sixteen seeded players receive byes into the second round, the likes of Oneil Stewart, Janos Varga and Gregor Gorshkov will be in action in the first round.






    Yes, I know I've made the draws a bit too overpowered but I'm not changing them now. Bowenburg's streak of awesome draws continues. In Hamburg qualifying, second seed Alex de Wet has Xabier Jiminez in the first round. In Indianapolis qualifying, second seed Billy Spleen has Ricardo Couto first up. Vladimir Stakhanov has doubles superstar Ralph Robinson, and Scotland Rivers has UAE's Ali Ahmed. Finally, Matt Bre has Benoît Rio.

    In Penza, fifth seed Spas Delev begins with a match against local Evgeniy Volkoff, and faces a possible quarterfinal against Czech Republic's Vaclav Zeman. Randy Banks starts off his qualifying campaign with a match against Mikhail Prokopenko.

    Good work again De Kinsele, Haas, Smeltz, Daneu. Could have been worse tbh.

    I normally just take it one match at a time, but I fancy my chances of knocking out Blanco in the second round in Indiana.

    Big call!

    If you want to play doubles, say so by tomorrow and leave some preferences and I'll work things out.

    Could be a short tournament for Mustard. If he makes it to the 2nd round he will likely face Cowan. Given he couldn't succeed in Mantra, we feel he will struggle at the Indy. He'll need to show more than he did in Mantra to go deep in this tournament.

    Hoping for a quarter final match up against the Ox, may have beaten him last encounter? Or maybe that was Drake I'm thinking I beat.

    Unless I'm forgetting another meeting, you did beat Ox 6-2 6-3 in the quarterfinals of Barcelona.
