    Looking forward to the big clash between the Onwye brothers as well as CWLand players in the Auckland quarters.

    Auckland; Sydney (QFs) - Jan 12-18 Season I

    Heineken Open
    Quarter-finals - Auckland

    Competition Details
    Finals

    The dream run for both CWLand representatives in the Auckland draw came to an abrupt end today as Jojo Mustard and Sven Oxenstierna fell to the top and third seed respectively. For Mustard it was a tough prospect against the arguably the greatest player alive, but he made a good fist of it early to level the first set at four games apiece. But Jason Hall has the ability to lift his game when needed and made sure that his perfect record of not dropping a set in the tournament would remain as he managed a break of service in the final game of the set to seal it 6-4. From there it was all academic as Mustard, who wasn't performing as badly as the score suggested, was at times reduced to a mere observer of Hall's exceptional game. He raced through the last set in 26 minutes on the back of a booming forehand down the line to claim the match 6-4 6-1.

    His opponent in the semifinal will be world number eight Zoltan Varga in a hotly anticipated encounter as the Hungarian made light work of qualifier Sven Oxenstierna. Varga broke early in the first set and again later to race to a 6-2 win, but things would get worse for The Ox who was obviously less fresh following two three set encounters. Varga seemed to only benefit from a hard slog against Murphy S'ua as he improved his game even more in the second set as he refused to drop a game to The Ox who capitulated in just over 25 minutes. The 6-2 6-0 win more than enough to set up a dream semifinal clash with Hall.

    In the other semifinal, fifth seed Heinz Hainisch will face unseeded Ross Onwye in the semifinal after overcoming fourth seed Darcy Cowan in the third quarterfinal. Hainisch dropped the first set 5-7, but stuck close to the eighteen year old and forced the second set to a breaker. A clinical display in the tiebreaker set the tone for a breezy third set for the Austria to seal a 5-7 7-6(3) 6-2 win. His opponent in the final will be Ross Onwye who managed a close 7-5 7-6(4) victory over his brother Hayden Onwye. The Moroccan brothers put on an entertaining display, but the qualifier just couldn't match it with his older brother as Ross advanced to the second semi.

    Seeds Out: 4-Darcy Cowan (USA).

    Medibank International
    Quarter-finals - Sydney

    Competition Details
    Finals

    The impressive form of qualifier Tom Vollan continued as he booked a semifinal showdown with top seed Radek Špidla of the Czech Republic with a three set win over fifth seed Johan Ortiz. In an odd match of quickly changing momentum, none of the sets were closely fought as the pair exchanged 6-2 sets to begin with. With Ortiz in red hot touch following the second, the Norwegian hit back with renewed vigour to seal a 6-2 2-6 6-3 win. In the first quarterfinal, Špidla came back from a set down to easily down Marcelo Alavos 4-6 6-4 6-0. On the other side of the draw, second seed Patrick Pascaul missed out on a semifinal spot as he was downed in three sets by seventh seeded American Morgan Carter. It is assured that at least one American will be contesting the Medibank International final as Carter was joined by Wayne Boyd who came from behind to defeat Pierre L'Estrange in the third semifinal despite dropping the opening set.

    Seeds Out: 5-Johan Ortiz (COL); 2-Patrick Pascaul (FRA).

    Auckland; Sydney (SFs) - Jan 12-18 Season I

    Heineken Open
    Semi-finals - Auckland

    Competition Details
    Finals

    Unseeded Moroccan Ross Onwye has booked an unlikely finals showdown against world number one Jason Hall following a three set victory over fifth seeded Austrian Heinz Hainisch. Fresh off beating his brother in the quarters, Onwye was in fine touch in the opening set as he broke Hainisch's serve in the fourth game before going on to claim it 6-3. But the Austrian, who knocked out fourth seeded wonderkid Darcy Cowan in the quarters, was not going down without a fight as he broke early in the second set to level the match at one set a piece. It was a blow to Onwye as he missed a couple of crucial break points, but he made up for it by holding his nerve in a tiebreaker in the decider - sealing a 6-3 4-6 7-6(4) win. Onwye faces a much larger challenge in the form of Hall who continued his unstoppable form with a 6-2 6-2 thumping of Zoltan Varga. Hall has not dropped a set in the tournament so far and nothing suggests that it set to change.

    Seeds Out: 3-Zoltan Varga (HUN), 5-Heinz Hainisch (AUT).

    Medibank International
    Semi-finals - Sydney

    Competition Details
    Finals

    In Sydney, another top seed made it to the final as Radek Špidla came from behind to overcome a brave performance from qualifier Tom Vollan of Norway. Vollan, who had already defeated two seeded players en route to the semis, looked in impressive touch in the first set as he claimed it 6-3. But unlike Marcelo Alavos in the quarters, Špidla's opponent did not go away as Vollan stuck close to the world number six as the second set edged towards 5-5. But unfortunately for the Norwegian, he dropped what would be the penultimate game of the set to allow Špidla to level the game at one set each. It was a carbon-copy in the third set as the Norwegian dropped the identical game to hand the top seed passage into the final with a 3-6 7-5 7-5 win. His opponent will be American Morgan Carter who defeated countryman Wayne Boyd in the second semifinal in straight sets. It wasn't all one way traffic for the seventh seed as the 33-year old Boyd stuck close, but ultimately fell short as Carter booked a spot in the final with an impressive 7-6 (5) 6-3 win.

    Seeds Out: None.

    Cracking match between Ross and Hayden Onwye. I was glad to have purchased tickets to Court Number One via the legal channels. Some incredible shots played, but of even more interest was the sledging between the players. My favourite exchange was:

    "You're a Bastard, Ross!"
    "If I'm a Bastard, You're a Bastard too, ****!"

    Massively late, and not even in the sign-up thread. Yay me. Hope you can fit me in.

    Name: Martti Korpinen
    Nationality: Suomi (Finland)
    Date of birth: 23/11/1989
    Right or left-handed: Right
    Signature court (pick ONE): Hard
    Short biography of person and style:
    Standing at a modest 5'11", and as lean as a rake, Martti is fast, aggressive and precise. He likes to dictate the game by putting the ball exactly where he wants it, and has a wicked backhand. Unfortunately he lacks a game-breaking serve, and is often undone by smart powerful returns. Coupled with a weaker forehand and an inability to settle for the percentage plays, he can often be exploited by more experienced players. Many mistake his intense eyes and complete lack of a smile as arrogance on court, however Martti struggles to deal with attention and hides himself behind a shield which few manage to penetrate. Youth is on his side however and he may learn to overcome his negatives to become a great player.

    If you need 10 players I can do them, but think it's a bit late?

    Heineken Open
    Final - Auckland

    Competition Details
    Finals

    World number one Jason Hall has taken a surprisingly hard-fought win over the unseeded Ross Onwye of Morocco to claim victory in the Heineken Open. Despite the straight sets scoreline, Hall had it tough against Onwye whose supreme endurance made many of Hall's normally unreturnable shots returnable. At times it seemed it would turn into a battle of athleticism as the equally adept athlete Hall managed to match Onwye at the expense of some real opportunities to break the first set open. But with the scores locked at five-all, Hall managed to finally break the steady serve of Onwye and claim a set-winning 6-5 lead. It was a similar tale in the second set as Onwye looked no chance on Hall's serve but surprisingly consistent on his own. Consistency didn't stop Hall managing to bring up four break points throughout the set before finally making the breakthrough in the fifth game of the set - a break which would never be made up as Hall romped to a 7-5 7-5 win.

    Seeds Out: None.

    Medibank International
    Final - Sydney

    Competition Details
    Finals

    Czech top seed Radek Špidla suffered a dramatic second set capitulation to forfeit the Medibank International crown as American Morgan Carter ran over him in a dominant 7-6(7) 6-0 win. In two sets which couldn't be more different, Špidla and Carter exchanged two breaks each in the opening set which was forced to a tiebreaker - neither man looking particularly convincing on their own service. But as the marathon tiebreaker was decided 9-7 in favour of the American, Špidla seemed to lose all confidence whilst Morgan only gained in form - particularly on his own serve - as he raced out to a 4-0 lead. Having Morgan breaking his serve twice in two games was just about enough to kill off any chance of Špidla getting back into the contest - a position made even worse as Špidla blew a 40-0 lead in the fifth game to fall behind 5-0. It took just three aces for Morgan to seal the championship with a pants down set - claiming the $73,900 prize.

    Seeds Out: 1-Radek Špidla (CZE).

    Reckon just quietly CWL could put its hand up to host the masters series final at the end of the year in the next few years. I can confirm that a $145m tennis centre catering for hard court specialists is being built in the heart of Fitzworthingham.
