After a few technical problems relating out of the internet crashing, and then Israel scoring a late winner, we have to apologise for their being no commentary up for the last couple of days. But we are able to provide a report based on the final, and send out our congratulations to Ketqtiadv and Tytta/Virex, who are the 2007 Tennis Tipping Masters Cup Champions.
Ketqtiadv was always in control of his final over Aleskz, boosted by the knowledge that he needed to win the match to end the year as world number 1, and had defeated Greatkingrat in the semi finals in a close match. Aleskz meanwhile had had an easier win over Coreyschucky, who keeps the record of Americans not being able to play outside of their own country alive.
Ketqtiadv dominated the first set of his match, not allowing Aleskz much of a look-in in the early going, and in the end that was enough as Aleskz just couldn’t find a way back into the match. Ketqtiadv won the match to secure yet another title of a record breaking season for him, and means he ends the year as world number 1, and with only a R32 in the Australian Open to defend (losing to an outstanding player
) , has a good chance to move further up the rankings.
The doubles ranking was already secured going into the last match, with Scarecrows having already secured that position, and for a long time it looked as if he and Andre would celebrate that success with the title. But Tytta/Virex managed to battle back and took it to a final set tie-break which they won convincingly, but seemed to be unaware of the win to begin with. This meant that Brazil had done the double with both singles and doubles titles.
We would like to thank all the players for their performances this week, and with them all the best in the new year.
But now the circuit moves onto THE event of the year, that being the Shrewsbury challenger, where someone is defending their title...
