Re: Lapentti Wins Grenoble Challenger

It's a bit special because I think it's his first indoor tournament win, few people expected him to be able to play that well on this surface. He could win a few matches in Metz as well.

Re: Lapentti Wins Grenoble Challenger

I'm glad for him, he was getting dangerously close to dropping out of the top 100.

Re: Lapentti Wins Grenoble Challenger

Correction, he won Lyon on indoor carpet in 1999, but that's a long time ago.

Re: Lapentti Wins Grenoble Challenger

He will drop well out of the top 100 anyway, Palermo final points are dropping off this week. He'll be really motivated to well in Metz.

Re: Lapentti Wins Grenoble Challenger

Well I had hopes of him doing quite well this year and maybe entering the top 50 for a while.

Too bad that he will be a shadow the rest of his career probably.

Re: Lapentti Wins Grenoble Challenger

He has been plagued with injuries. If he could have an injury free season next year there is a chance he could really push up the rankings again.

This is barely his 4th Challenger's title (lost 8 finals on this level) after Santiago '95, Aracaju '04 & Szczecin '06.
