    Hamburg; Indianapolis; Penza Challenger (Qualification) - July 19-25 Season I

    German Hamburg Open
    Qualifiers - Hamburg

    Second seed Alex de Wet's indifferent clay form has taken an embarrassing turn for the worse as he was beaten in straight sets in the first round of qualifying by world number 226 Xabier Jimenez. The CWLander served up double the errors that his Spanish opponent did; throwing away a 2-0 lead in the decider by missing a simple backhand volley. The Spaniard did his best to force de Wet to play the extra shots; the CWLander tumbling out in three sets 6-2 3-6 6-3.



    Indianapolis Tennis Championships
    Qualifiers - Indianapolis

    Exciting CWLander Scotland Rivers has earned qualification to the main draw of his second ATP tournament in Indianapolis after a straight sets thrashing of countryman Billy Spleen in the qualifying round. The second seeded CWLander came into the contest fancying his chances after hard-fought matches in earlier rounds, but was stunned by the explosive Rivers who dropped just three games in the hour-long procession. Rivers had previously come from a set down in the second round to defeat Mexico's Felipe Pelayo, and used the near escape to lift his confidence in his third match of the weekend. Spleen, however, looked disinterested as Rivers dismantled his game by bullying him around the court to secure a 6-1 6-2 win.

    Elsewhere, Vladimir Stakhanov gave up a one-set lead in his second round clash against Spleen - a complete opposite of his first round clash against Ralph Robinson. There Stakhanov was bagelled in the first set by the doubles star who thundered down an amazing sixteen aces. But once his serve was gone, he was never a chance as Stakhanov advanced 0-6 6-4 6-3. Stakhanov took the first in his match against compatriot Spleen, but could not keep the pressure on as Spleen advanced 3-6 6-3 6-4.

    Finally, Matt Bre failed to build on his appearance Newport a fortnight ago as he was smashed in straight sets by Aussie fourth seed Pat Hewitt in the second round. Bre started well by coming from a set down to defeat Benoit Rio in the first round, but never worried Hewitt in a disappointing display as the Australian advanced to the qualifying round 6-2 6-0.



    Penza Cup
    Qualifiers - Penza

    Randy Banks will this week compete in his maiden Challenger tournament after earning qualification to the main draw of the Penza Cup. Banks did it the hard way by defeating two seeded players en route to qualification; third seed Michal Greda, sixth seed Srdjan Ivic and Russian Mikhail Prokopenko falling to the inexperienced CWLander. After dropping a set to Prokopenko, Banks lifted his game in the second and qualifying rounds to complete a 6-3 6-4 win over the Serbian Ivic to set up a first round match with Polish player Piotr Bak.



    • Qualifiers: Randy Banks; Mykhaylo Martynenko; Fedot Shatalin; Joseph Tessier.

    Hamburg; Indianapolis; Penza Challenger (1R*) - July 19-25 Season I

    German Hamburg Open
    First Round - Hamburg

    Men's Singles (Seeds & Other Entrants - Seeds - Finals - Section 1 - Section 2 - Section 3 - Section 4)
    Men's Doubles (Draw)

    Despite all the seeds receiving byes into the second round, the German Hamburg Open was not without its surprises in an enthralling start to the week. The highlight will no doubt be a hotly anticipated showdown between French Open semifinalist Juan Moreno and Roland Garros quarterfinalist Oneil Stewart who bounced back from a first round exit in Båstad with a straight sets win over Mark Harmel. The exciting Jamaican was last week upset by Hugh James, but started his Hamburg campaign off promisingly with a 6-4 6-4 thumping of the Belgian.

    Randy Smeltz and Sergio Joaquin will face off in another promising second round clash after the Spaniard eased past Russian veteran Vladimir Gryzlov in straight sets. Joaquin and Smeltz recently met at a Challenger event in Poznan with the world number 19 prevailing in straight sets 6-3 7-6(4). Joaquin, however, looked much more assured in his start to the tournament as he convincingly defeated the 40-year old Russian whose dogged nature could not withstand a 6-1 7-6(5) defeat.

    Four qualifiers made it through to the second round, but Johan Ortiz - who joins Carlos Gonza, Dieter Bonhof and Marc Carretero in the round of 32 - has the toughest task of all of them as he faces world number two Jason Hall. Ortiz, who some ranked as high as the twentieth best player at the start of the season, proved too good in his first round clash against Ukraine's Roman Dorogan; the Colombian showing some glimpses of his best form in the 6-1 3-6 6-4 upset. Promising Spaniard Marc Carretero will head into the second round hoping to cause a massive upset against twelfth seed Almen Benaglio after he also produced a win in three. Carretero last week impressed against compatriot Daniel Paez Blanco in Stuttgart, but looked disappointing in his first set against Jose Navarro. But the Peruvian fell away as Carretero grew in confidence to secure an impressive 2-6 7-5 6-1 win.

    The Varga Brothers will compete as a duo for the first time since Paris this week in the doubles draw, but could find themselves pitted together in the third round after Janos Varga took a win over local Alex Peters in the match of the day. Varga was made to toil for his victory over the course of three hours as neither man was willing to give anything away. But ultimately, the Hungarian number three completed a victory in his first match back from injury to advance 6-3 5-7 6-4. To have any hope of facing his brother, the world number 41 must upset ninth seed Davis Kennedy. Zoltan Varga also has a tricky assignment as he faces Diego Hurtado of Colombia.

    Stoked to have made the quarters, will be a massive boost for Maxums ranking. Also stoked to have given blanco a minor scare to be 2-0 up in the first, knew it wouldnt happen though, hopefully more big things to come.

    Hamburg; Indianapolis; Penza Challenger (2R/1R) - July 19-25 Season I

    German Hamburg Open
    Second Round - Hamburg

    Men's Singles (Seeds & Other Entrants - Seeds - Finals - Section 1 - Section 2 - Section 3 - Section 4)
    Men's Doubles (Draw)

    French Open finalist Sven Oxenstierna has celebrated his return to clay well with a straight sets thrashing of Italy's Michael De Kinsele. The former world number four, in his first match for nearly a month, stormed past the Italian 23-year old in just over an hour and a half in a solid outing. De Kinsele, who impressed in his first round win over Mario Timko, was unable to produce similar form against the dominant CWLander who took just thirty minutes to wrap up the first set to love. Whilst the world number 137 put up a better fight in the second, he didn't have enough to stop Oxenstierna who advanced 6-0 6-3. The Ox now faces local Becker Haas who overcame a scare to beat German qualifier Dieter Bonhof in three sets.

    Jamee Hancianu started off his campaign well with a straight sets win over Bulgaria's Yordan Zakov, but will have his work cut out for him in the third round as he faces former world number one Jason Hall. Hancianu was very impressive against the Bulgarian veteran; improving as the match progressed after being behind 0-3 in the first set. The teenager clawed back to even ground against the Bulgarian and raced through the second set with some dominant play to secure a 7-5 6-2 win. Meanwhile, top seed Hall started his tournament off very well by defeating Colombia's Johan Ortiz in straight sets 6-2 6-2.

    It was, however, a day of upsets in Hamburg and no player would be more disappointed with their loss than Randy Smeltz. The tenth seed last week made the semifinals of the tournament in Stuttgart, and came into a Blanco-less draw feeling confident of making some waves. In his last meeting with Sergio Joaquin, Smeltz prevailed in a tight three setter, and after the first set in Hamburg looked in a good position. But the Spanish 24-year old rallied to take the second set in a tiebreaker to leave the world number nineteen feeling uneasy. That unease was compounded as Joaquin took an early break of service in the decider to shoot ahead 3-1. The major criticism of Smeltz has been his inability to force the pace of matches, and he made no comeback as Joaquin eased to an impressive 4-6 7-6(3) 6-4. Joaquin now faces seventh seed Dwayne Murdoch who disposed of Valter Cordiero in straight sets.

    Elsewhere, the tournament was in shambles as no less than five seeds fell first up. The biggest name was world number seven Juan Moreno who fell in a tight three-set contest against Oneil Stewart. The Argentine certainly got a rough draw against the talented Jamaican who advanced to a third round clash with Patrick Pascaul 6-4 3-6 6-3. Elsewhere, the Varga Brothers had a bad day as they both exited in the second round; eighth seed Zoltan Varga - a Wimbledon semifinalist - losing out in two tiebreakers to Diego Hurtado. Meanwhile, Janos Varga could not prevail in a three-hour epic encounter with Davis Kennedy; the Canadian 27-year old advancing 5-7 7-6(2) 7-6(5). And in the biggest upset, talented Spaniard Marc Carretero defeated twelfth seed Almen Benaglio in straight sets.


    • Seeded players out: Almen Benaglio; Jozsef Boros; Juan Moreno; Randy Smeltz; Zoltan Varga.


    Indianapolis Tennis Championships
    First Round - Indianapolis

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

    Jojo Mustard has started brightly in Indianapolis after walking away with a straight sets win against Ninteh Doh. The Japanese veteran stuck with Mustard right throughout the contest, but the CWLander had the class to shake him off late in both sets to capitalise on the good form he created for himself in Manta last week. Mustard's 7-5 6-4 win gives him a really tough second round assignment against Wimbledon champion Darcy Cowan who took three sets to defeat Paolo Mandonna in his first tournament since winning the grass crown.

    Rob Bowenburg would have hoped for a more convincing display against Aussie qualifier Matthew Tobin, but a win is a win as he advanced in two hours and twenty-six minutes on an outside court. The Johannesburg and 's-Hertogenbosch quarterfinalist dropped the second set against the Australian and found himself in trouble at 3-3 in the third. But the aggressive CWLander managed to push on to take three of the last four games in a gutsy display; advancing to the second round 6-4 3-6 6-4. Bowenburg earlier this week suggested he could 'take' world number one Daniel Paez Blanco in the second round, and tomorrow he will have his chance after the Spaniard accounted for CWLand qualifier Scotland Rivers in straight sets. Rivers looked overawed by the big match occasion, and in the first set struggled to get any momentum as he was reduced to pushing the ball around and trying to keep it in play. That obviously didn't work for the exciting youngster, and he came out in the second set with more fire in his belly and was level at 5-5 with the best player in the world. But after scything a winner past Blanco to save one match point, he could not repeat his success as he put the next backhand into the net to hand Blanco the break and the match 6-1 7-5.

    Finally, embattled big-man Heath Davis ran out of gas against super-fit 36-year old Jean-Alain Depuis. Davis managed to fire down a massive nineteen aces in the match, and was rewarded in the second set which he took 6-2. But the dogged Frenchman, who turns 37 in September managed to scrap his way back into the contest and take the decider to a tiebreaker. After over two and a half hours on court, Davis started to feel it against the barely-sweating Depuis who raced through the breaker to secure a 6-2 3-6 7-6(1) win. He now faces Croatia's Miroslav Brdar who embarrassed an out-of-form Tom Vollan the day before by handing him the double bagel. The big-serving Norwegian imploded on court as his first serve percentage dipped below forty per cent. Down 0-6 0-2, he seemed to give up completely as Brdar advanced 6-0 6-0.

    Frustratingly for him, Serbia's Danijel Micic failed to capitalise on his great Davis Cup campaign as he bowed out in straight sets to Wayne Boyd. Micic almost single-handedly won the tie for the Serbs in an awesome weekend of tennis, but wilted on the smaller stage against the local. The San Jose champion played good economic tennis as he watched Micic frustrate himself in a 6-1 7-5 upset. Elsewhere, Morgan Carter made a massive comeback against David Champion to advance to a second round clash with qualifier Waylon Jones. Carter dropped the first set against the left-handed Aussie 1-6, and was staring at defeat after being broken in the first game of the second set. But the American came back authoratively to claim twelve of the last sixteen games to prevail 1-6 6-2 6-3 against the eighth seed.


    • Seeded players out: David Champion; Danijel Micic.


    Penza Cup
    First Round - Penza

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

    CWLand's Spas Delev has made a bright start in the Challenger in Penza after coming through a difficult first round clash with Evgeniy Volkoff with a win. One of the tougher 'floating' players going around, Volkoff made life difficult for Delev throughout the match in front of his home crowd. The Russian took the second set 6-4 after breaking the Delev serve early and clinging on for dear life to send the match to a third. But there Delev had too much class and he came out with a 6-2 4-6 6-2 win to set up a clash with China's Sheng Yiming. Qualifier Randy Banks put up a brave showing against Poland's Piotr Bak, but his first Challenger tournament ended valiantly in a tough loss. Banks dropped the first set tiebreaker 7-9 in what proved to be the difference between the two as the Pole edged out a tight 7-6(7) 4-6 6-3 win.

    Elsewhere, Haiku Morkel completed a shocking couple of days for the Norwegians as he followed Kim and Tom Vollan out of tournaments in the first round with a loss to Joseph Tessier. The top seed cruised through the first set 2-6, before the French qualifier came back hard to secure an upset 2-6 6-4 6-3 win.


    • Seeded players out: Adam Murray; Haiku Morkel; Vaclav Zeman.

    ---

    Hmm... ouch for Smeltz and for Norway in general (though K Vollan played OK). Some massive upsets in Hamburg open that draw wide open. Henson/Charles match of the day? I think so.
