Bjorkman Wins 700th Match, Clinches Stockholm Title With Ullyett; Mirnyi-Ram Secure Vienna Trophy

Top seeds Jonas Bjorkman of Sweden and Zimbabwean Kevin Ullyett clinched their first team ATP title at the If Stockholm Open, after defeating Swedish wild cards Johan Brunstrom and Michael Ryderstedt 6-1, 6-3 in Sunday’s final, which lasted 55 minutes.

Bjorkman and Ullyett, both 36 years of age, have now captured three Stockholm titles. Bjorkman triumphed previously in 2003 (w/Woodbridge) and 2007 (w/Mirnyi), while Ullyett lifted the trophy in 1999 (w/Norval) and 2002 (w/W. Black).

It was Bjorkman’s 700th doubles match win (700-302 lifetime). Only his former partner Todd Woodbridge (782) and Sherwood Stewart (723) has won more career matches.

"My best memory from Stockholm is when I won the title in 1997,” said Bjorkman, after being carried around Centre Court in a wheelchair by Stockholm tournament staff. “But also my first visit when I qualified to the main draw and was able to stay in the hotel with the other pros. It was a special moment for me."

"The whole week has been fantastic but at the same time it took a lot of energy from me mentally. I'm proud to have won ATP events with 19 different partners during my long career. I'm very fortunate to have played with the greatest doubles players of all time such as John McEnroe and Todd Woodbridge.

"This is a perfect ending for me to win the doubles title in Stockholm, in my last match in Sweden, with my family and friends, old coaches, watching me. The only person was missing today was my son Max who is back at Monte-Carlo in school."

Bjorkman, who also captured the Bastad title with Robin Soderling in July (d. Brunstrom-Rojer), has now won 53 career doubles titles (53-42) with 19 different partners. He has won at least one ATP doubles title for 15 consecutive years (1994-2008).

Ullyett, who won the Nottingham trophy with Bruno Soares in June, improved to 32-24 in ATP doubles finals.

Ullyett said: "I would rank Jonas as one of the top three doubles players ever to play the game alongside with Todd Woodbridge and John McEnroe."

"There was a lot of pressure on me this week. Everyone reminded me all the time it was Jonas' last tournament in Sweden, so they all wanted us to win the title here. We played great together during the week to win our first title of the season. We now look forward to a good week in Madrid to possibly clinch our spot in the Tennis Masters Cup Shanghai."
Bjorkman goes for a winner. The experienced doubles players improved to 21-13 together on the season. Earlier this year, the pair finished runner-up at Wimbledon (l. to Nestor-Zimonjic) and made semifinal exits at Las Vegas and ATP Masters Series events in Monte-Carlo and Rome.

Bjorkman and Ullyett broke serve in the fourth and sixth games of the first set, which lasted 24 minutes. The duo won 16 of 22 service points and 11 of 15 return points.

Brunstrom and Ryderstedt, who reached the Stockholm quarterfinals last year (l. to Hanley-Ullyett), also had their serve broken in the fifth and ninth games of the second set. The pair won 31 of 83 points in total.

Brunstrom, 28, dropped to 0-2 in ATP finals, having finished runner-up at Bastad with Jean-Julien Rojer in July this year (l. to Bjorkman-Soderling). He dropped to 10-10 on the season.

"We didn't want to ruin Jonas' farewell match in Sweden so we let them win [laughs]," said 23-year-old Stockholm resident Ryderstedt, who was appearing in the first doubles final of his career. "They played incredible tennis and were just too good for us today."

Bjorkman and Ullyett, who started the week at No. 6 in the ATP 2008 Race with 386 points, collected €37,500 in prize money, while Brunstrom and Ryderstedt will split €22,300.

Bjorkman-Ullyett Triumph In Paris



Fifth seeds Jonas Bjorkman and Kevin Ullyett won their second ATP title with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over sixth-seeded South Africans Jeff Coetzee and Wesley Moodie in the final of the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris on Sunday.

While Coetzee and Moodie failed to capitalize on any of their four break points, Bjorkman and Ullyett converted four of seven opportunities to secure victory in 58 minutes.

The Swedish-Zimbabwean team of Bjorkman and Ullyett qualified for Tennis Masters Cup Shanghai in fourth place in the Stanford ATP Doubles Race.

“The last two matches we’ve played have been the best of our year I think,” said Ullyett. “Today was really good, we didn’t do anything wrong. We fought hard, came at some big break points and dominated on the returns. It was a great 48 hours for me, really special.”

“Our energy the last two days has just been going out there to win every point aggressively so (in Shanghai) we’re just going to try and play as aggressively as we can.”

Bjorkman and Ullyett won their first team title three weeks ago at Stockholm (d. Brunstrom-Ryderstedt) and have since followed with two semifinal exits at the Mutua Madrilena Masters Madrid and last week in Lyon. Earlier in the season they finished runners-up to Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic at Wimbledon.

Bjorkman, who will retire at the season end said: “Obviously it’s always easy to start thinking about maybe playing longer, but that’s only on the good weeks and I’m old enough and got the experience to know that it’s not going to be each week.”

“I feel great, it’s really great to finish off strongly and do it in good style. We’ve been playing our best tennis the last three or four weeks so we’re really looking forward to Shanghai. Winning in Bastad and Stockholm and finishing off with Paris it’s nothing that I could have really expected. This is way beyond my goals at the end here so I just hope the good omen continues in Shanghai.”

It is the second title of the season for both Bjorkman and Ullyett. The 36-year-old Bjorkman, who also titled at Bastad with Robin Soderling, improved to a 54-42 lifetime record in ATP finals. Ullyett, also 36, triumphed in Nottingham with Bruno Soares and has a 33-24 career mark in ATP finals.

Coetzee and Moodie will make their team debut at Tennis Masters Cup Shanghai after qualifying with their semifinal win on Saturday. They were appearing in their third ATP final of the season, having opened with a runner-up finish at Doha (l. to Kohlschreiber-Skoch) and won the Estoril title in April (d. J. Murray-Ullyett).

“Unfortunately we had a bit of a slow start”, said Coetzee. “We could have had a break early on it was just really unlucky and they played well and they’re really good front runners.”
