    Week 15 (PTA): Casablanca [Joaquín]; Houston [Mustard]

    Grand Prix Hassan II (Season II) - Singles
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Jefferson Drake is the defending champion, but lost in the quarterfinals to Sergio Joaquín.
    Joaquín won the final, defeating Carlo Amato 6-3, 6-4.






    Morocco plays host to one of the opening tournaments of the clay court season and boasts a stellar cast including two top thirty players. At the top of the field is Italy's Carlo Amato who makes his first appearance in Morocco. Also confirmed so far is Sanchez Emelio who hopes to atone for his finals defeat last season and season I finalist Ion Andueza.

    W: 250
    F: 150
    SF: 90
    QF: 45
    R16: 20
    R32: 0
    Q4: +12

    (or, choose a Challenger here.)

    US Men's Clay Court Championships II - Singles
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Tiago Matías was the defending champion, however he chose not to participate this year.
    Jojo Mustard won in the final, defeating Rick Henson 6-1, 3-6, 7-5.






    Tiago Matías defends his Houston title this year, but is not the biggest name in the field as Rick Henson will look to make a good start to his first clay court season after missing last year's through injury. Some of the biggest American names join him like Morgan Carter, Jason Bradley and Wayne Boyd.

    Heef will take a week off. Hopefully I'm not defending too many points.

    Probably worth me putting up what's being defended here:

    Maxum: 10
    Mustard: 150
    Read: 0
    Smeltz: 80
    Spleen: 30
    Svensson: 40

    Also, doubles for 250s and below are garn. Hopefully we've still got the interest here to make it worth continuing.

    Yeah, some of our top players are AWOL at the moment, aren't they?

    Houston for Mustard. Mustard is also open for a doubles partner with Davis taking a break.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Langley will try his luck at the US Clay.

    Hoping for a couple of wins to make his second two weeks ago look good.

    US Men's Clay Court Championships II - Singles
    PTA 250 - 1st Round - Houston, TX - Clay (Red)

    • Sixth seed Spas Delev has commenced his campaign at River Oaks with a victory as he schooled American young gun Jesse Adams in straight sets. Now ranked just outside the world's top fifty, Delev brought good form into the match as he returned to the clay for the first time since his first round exit to Marc Carretero at the French Open last season. But Adams was likewise looking good as he benefited from yet another wildcard, but after holding serve well early was broken to drop the first set 4-6. From there the improving Easterner was all over him like a rash - surging into the second round with an impressive 6-4, 6-1 win. He next plays Latvia's Ivars Emsis who he previously defeated in final at Mons.


    • There was also success for wildcard entrant Rick Langley who picked up his first ever main tour victory with a 6-0, 4-6, 6-2 win over local Waylon Jones. Langley was sublime early as he shut Jones out of the first set, but the American lifted in the second to clinch key points with some dogged returning. But after levelling the match at a set each, Jones struggled with cramp and took an injury timeout after which Langley surged home with two breaks of serve to move into a second round clash with Gregor Gorshkov in three sets.


    • Seeded players out: Boris Denisov; Alex Peters.
