    Barcelona Open Banco Sabadell II
    PTA Tour 500 - Semi Finals - Barcelona, Spain - Clay (Red)

    • Jarkko Maxum has moved to the final with a three-set upset over ZoltŠn Varga... more.


    • Maxum has the unenviable task of meeting World No. 2 Daniel PŠez Blanco in tomorrow's final after the Spaniard went one step closer to defending his title with a straight sets win over fifth seed Miroslav Brdar. Blanco looked the best he has looked since returning from injury as he easily accounted for the Croat love and three and is an almost unbackable favourite to oust Maxum in tomorrow's final.


    • Seeded players out: Miroslav Brdar; ZoltŠn Varga.

    Blanco to fire blanks in the final - that is, a double bagel for Maxum.

    Avatar now by choice. 5-0 in the Ashes and all.

    Have faith!

    btw if my calculations are correct, regardless of tomorrow's result Maxum shoots up to around World No. 45.

    Actually that's a lie. Would be top forty with a win.

    Either way, it will be Maxum's first time inside the top fifty which makes eight. We have a monopoly on the mid-rangers, baby!

    Surely a quick under the table payment will see Maxum jump to the top 40

    Something else under the table might also work...

    Barcelona Open Banco Sabadell II
    PTA Tour 500 - Final - Barcelona, Spain - Clay (Red)

    • With the East CWLand broadcast cutting out midway through the second set, unseeded East CWLander Jarkko Maxum has failed in his attempt to win his first PTA tour title as he was beaten in straight sets by an off-and-on top seed Daniel PŠez Blanco. Maxum was rank outsider against the Spaniard who hadn't dropped a set all week, but was very competitive early as Blanco made a number of uncharacteristic mistakes. But with the scores level at 5-5, the defending champion lifted a gear when he had to; breaking Maxum and then serving out the set 7-5. From there it was one way traffic as Maxum realised how far he has to go - the Spaniard wrapping up the second set inside half an hour to secure a 7-5, 6-0 win. Retaining his title, Blanco was complimentary about Maxum's performance and positive about the rest of his clay season which started so shakily last week in Monte Carlo.


    • Seeded players out: None.
