Stebe cant play indoors, I overrated him knowing he struggled on this surface. He looks bewildered.

Sela looks decent, Stebe not great.

Stebe is clearly a claycourt player why he had his challenger wins in asia, is really a big question to me, I expected him to win a clay challenger.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Harmony Club

Sela might have the most underrated backhand in the game. It's not top-tier, but it's pretty close (when he decides to not play like junk).

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Ibirapuera Gymnasium

Probably Sela will play the final of this tournament with Bellucci.

Kostas Kastoria is the King, is the Legend, is the Pantheon of Tennis Tipping.

Saulin, Felipin and Niltin are the players that have the mission to continue the Greek Legacy.

Hellas Team with the Bless of Baghdatis and Kostas.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Ibirapuera Gymnasium

Stebe just had 3 SPs on Sela's serve at 6-5...
And gets a 4th one now! Take it please!
Saved with a good serve by Sela
Stebe gets a 5th SP
Also saved...

2nd set TB it is! I say Sela wins it 7-3.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

Sela wins 64 76(3) and hit an excellent lob to set up match point.

Stebe had to have made around 60 errors.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Ibirapuera Gymnasium

Sela played a good tiebreaker, his movement ended up being too much, forced the German into errors, and he counter-punched well enough. Not a great performance but he looked extremely comfortable, he wasn't playing on top gear.

Stebe is going to have a hard time winning a match unless he really improves.

Re: Challenger Tour Finals - São Paulo on Ibirapuera Gymnasium

Cedrik sucks indoors. He doesn't have aclue how to play there and already this surface ist to fast for his spin, I don't think he gets to the Top 100 by the end of the year and no Australian MD!
