Great win for Tursunov, he is now 121st in the live rankings.

OFFTOPIC: Istanbul is written with 'n', not 'm'. Please correct in the OP.

I'm really happy for both players, plus Mannarino really deserved a final.

This is the first title for Tursunov since mid-2011 ('s hertogenbosch) and the first final for Mannarino since 2010 (ch. mons).

Haven't seen Mannarino plays for a long time. Congrats Dima.

Re: Challenger Istanbul F: Tursunov def. Mannarino 64 76

While it's great to see Mitya winning a title of any kind (he has 2/3 of his points to defend next month and a half) his play in the final hardly looked promising for his future. His footwork deteriorated to the point of non-existence literally. Ability to hit the ball on the rise has never been his forte but nowadays he's late to virtually every single ball. The consequences are less dramatic when he hits FH (it's still a pretty big shot though more and more often he just loops it a la Wozniacka) but his BH already damaged by poor timing even in his best years is now left in shatters. Mannarino fought off numerous BPs in set 1 simply by directing 2nd serves to Tursunov's BH and Mitya would miss tramlines on return time and again. Dunno how Mitya managed to break Mannarino to force 2nd set TB (had to leave after 3-4) but the Frenchman just gifted him service games on the first two occassions. On setpoint at 4-5 Mannarino netted an impossible-to-miss overhead, on BP at 2-1 in set 2 he doublefaulted.

Good to see Dima winning some back to back matches, even in Challenger tour. He really needed it

WTF ? Istanbul lost the Hospitality, thus the players will be awarded points according to the 75K schema, not 75K+H. Thus, Tursunov only gets 90 points for this tournament.
