CTF SF: Sela def. Bellucci 6-4 6-4

Thomaz had nothing left in the tank after yesterday's match vs Klizan. Fought hard, and actually played a little bit better today than he had throughout the event, but Dudi was simply the better player overall. Dudi didn't serve great but did well in not making a huge amount of errors and mostly allowing Bellucci to error himself into a loss.

Sorry but this is pathetic. Last time I checked Bellucci was a break up in the first too I think.

Dudi was up a break, got broken, and Bellucci double faulted to lose the first set.

Good result. It would have been a shame if a player who hasn't played any challenger events all year would have won the Challenger Tour Final.

some unreal clutch play by dudi to save I think, four bp's in the seventh game of the second. some ballsy net rushing and ridiculously good volleys then an ace to save the fourth.

Dudi can be impressive - for about two or three matches a year. Sigh.

I was at this match, Sela has a pair of purple heavy balls. Everytime he was in trouble in the match he would come out with something special and different. I lost count of how many touch volleys in the shoe lesses he made. I am usually critical of Bellucci, but here it was merrits to Sela.

Agree with you. It`s totally unfair that Bellucci received a WC to play this Masters Tour tournament with an 8 players format.
