Time for a little review of the grass court season
The tennis gazette
Who were the best GRASS COURT SEASON players?
#1 - Sabatini
A quartefinal in Mandana
was the only significant result the Argentine had before her triumph in Fort McMurray and her first cosy café grand slam
#2 - Federer
We know the swiss loves to play in Germany. By reaching the final in Münster
(surprisingly stopped by Berankis), his confidence increased and two weeks later, he would reach his first grand slam final
#3 - Graf
They all say the top players show their best at major events, and Graf proved that by making the grass court grand slam semifinals
in Fort McMurray.
#4 - Kohlschreiber
After a huge disappointment on home soil (lost first round in Münster), the German no.1 regrouped and worked hard to reach his first grand slam semis
#5 - Youzhny
Winning the Masters 500 title in Stonehaven
propeled the Russian in good position, but he unfortunately lost in the first round of the grass court grand slam.
Other significant results
won the title in Port Elizabeth
, defeating Radwasnka in the final. A second round loss at the grand slam was disappointing for the Scot but he is looking forward to the rest of the year.
won his first grass court title in Mandana
, India, beating Edberg in a thrilling final.
