Martin Verkerk defeats Cruciat 6-3 6-3 to win Athens Challenger

The Face Verkerk won the challenger in Greece, good luck with the comeback.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Well done to Markin . That's the 4th challenger title of his career. He won a futures title at Montreal in March, and now it's nice to see him winning a title at challenger level again. Hopefully his comeback will continue to gather future steam.

For a player who once played a final at RG he deserves at least the chance to play in the qualies

I'm sure they will give him a WC for qualies, if they don't that is just a disgrace.

A legend of the game like Verkerk needs to get a shot again.

That is so cool! Hopefully he can get back into Top 100 by the end of the year.
