    Finals Day - Marseille (France)

    Men's singles (Seeds - Finals - Top Half - Bottom Half)
    Men's doubles (Seeds - Draw)

    • Third seed Miroslav Brdar missed four set points in the final of the Open 13 in Marseille as he fell to a humiliating defeat to World No. 3 Radek Špidlá. In his first appearance since a shock semi final exit at the Australian Open, Špidlá ensured he would not leave France empty handed en route to Dubai as he survived a huge scare in the first set to take a 7-6(9), 6-0 win. Down 2-6 in the first set tiebreaker, Špidlá rallied to fire down two aces in between two unforced errors from the Croat to level it at 6-6 and then went on to take it 11-9. That blow crippled the impressive Croat whose patience went out the window along with his chances in a crippling straight sets loss.

    • Seeded players out: Miroslav Brdar.
    • Roel Hervelle & Jerzy Kosecki have done the job indoors at Marseille by backing up their Bergamo Challenger title win last week with a fine super tiebreaker win over Daniel Kestenholz & David Zwygart. After the two teams traded sets, the Belgian-Polish pair prevailed in the tense finish to claim their first PTA title 6-3, 5-7, [12-10].

    • Seeded players out: None.

    Finals Day - PTA 500 - Memphis, TN (United States)

    Men's singles (Seeds - Finals - Top Half - Bottom Half)
    Men's doubles (Seeds - Draw)

    • In a fine end to the weekend for CWLanders, Jojo Mustard has secured his maiden PTA title with a straight sets win over World No. 14 Henry Charles. Charles, an Australian Open quarter finalist, was looking for his first PTA tour title but lacked any real fire early as he looked a step behind an obviously excited Mustard. With Charles content to settle into rallies, Mustard was able to ease into his natural game and put away forehand winners with fine balance and precision. Broken twice in the first set, Charles looked for ways back into the match and saw an opening at break point up 2-1 in the second. He could not convert, though, as he sliced a backhand just long and Mustard went on to hold. The set went on service right to a tiebreaker, where Mustard quickly took advantage of a frustrated Charles by drawing a pair of unforced errors off the Brit's serve. That allowed him a 6-4 lead and his first two championship points; the World No. 28 surging well inside the top 30 with an overhead smash to complete a 6-2, 7-6(4).

    A jam-packed month for Mustard continues in Dubai next week, and he will finally rest the week after after West CWLand were given no fixture in the Davis Cup.

    • Seeded players out: Henry Charles.
    • In the doubles draw, American-Bahamas pairing Morton Blundell & Wayne Boyd earned back-to-back American PTA championships with a confident 6-2, 7-5 win over Becker Haas & Jean-Alain Depuis. After winning in San Jose last week, Blundell and Boyd completed a successful fortnight with a dominant victory over the French-German duo to move further inside the top eight of the PTA Race.

    • Seeded players out: None.

    Belgrade Challenger II
    Finals - Belgrade, Serbia

    Semi Finals

    • Maarten Berg continued his relentless march to the finals in Belgrade with an expert straight-sets thumping of the 9th seed, Stipo Vucemilovic. Like Berg's previous opponents in Belgrade, the Croat just could not gain any traction at all against the sustained pressure exerted by Berg and succombed 6 - 1, 6 - 2.
    • Unseeded local Novica Kulic sprung a surprise win over 5th seed Yevgeny Pushkov. Kulic lost the first set, but had actually looked the better of the two players in the early exchanges before Pushkov smelt blood at 0 - 30 on the Kulic serve. Kulic continued to create chances against Pushkov and broke him twice to lead 4 - 0 in the second. The experience of the Russian saw him pull one back, but could not get a second break and lost the set. The third went to a tie break where Kulic prevailed on a wave of euphoria from the crowd 4 - 6, 6 - 4, 7 - 6 (7 - 3)

    • Seeded players out: Yevgeny Pushkov (5, RUS), Stipo Vucemilovic (9, CRO)


    • It was that man again, Maarten Berg who prevailed against the unseeded local Novica Kulic on finals day. Berg didn't break his chain of not losing a set in Belgrade, but Kulic pushed him close in the second - earning, but failing to convert 2 break points before losing his serve to exit 6 - 1, 7 - 5. Over the course of the week, Berg had proved to be well ahead of the other competitors in Belgrade and it was a deserved victory.

    Stoked to have won my first Singles title. It's really pleasing after so much doubles success and the criticism directed during the Davis Cup.

    Hopefully this can kick start Mustard's singles career.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
