5.00 PM GMT - Sela vs. Bellucci
followed - Beck vs. Stebe

Totally expecting Sela vs. Beck with Beck winning.

I think Dudi wins the title here. I wonder how much left in the tank Bellucci has. Remember he was 2 sets and a break up on Sela at the USO.

Andi struggled for much of the match today, but it didn't seem like he was fully extending himself. He'll be better v Stebe, and he should win in straights if he plays well.

The idea of this Challenger tour "Master" is brillant. I´m just wondering if it`s fair that the organization can give a WC and especially considering that this tournament gives points for the ATP (tell me if I`m wrong about that). If it doesn`t give points and it`s just an exhibition tournament that is ok. But not in case the tournament gives points for the ATP ranking I don`t find it fair that a WC can be given.

Sela is in the final after 6-4 6-4 over home favorite Belucci
Dudi was playing smart, he forced long rallies because the brazilian was tired from yesterday 3 hours marathon
His record agains optional opponenets: Beck (105, 1-0 this year nottingham CH) and Stebe (103, 1-0 from the round rubin 6-4 7-6)

I just hope the 3rd set won't be a long one. The last thing I want is the winner to be dead tired tomorrow (as Bellucci probably was today, didn't watch the match).

misty1
11-19-2011, 07:58 PM

this match was in andi's hands and he blew it

watch the idiot get blown away here now

Yeah that's the bad thing... Does anyone know when the final is going to be played tomorrow?

The Prince

No real chances for breaks yet. Andi has been slightly more comfortable on serve, but we're getting towards the pressure end of the set now, and I suspect we may see a few more breaks before the end.

_Chaz
11-19-2011, 08:31 PM
2 BPs for Stebe!!! Come on, break here!

_Chaz
11-19-2011, 08:33 PM

If he doesn't break here he will get broken the next game!

I'm feeling Beck is getting tired, 4th BP for Stebe.

_Chaz

I've never seen so many netcords in one single match.

Now please break Cedrik!

Stebe the better player in this set, so i guess Beck will take it, just my feeling. :sad:

Great victories even for Sela and Stebe aswell. Good to see that Sela beated Bellucci (I don`t agree with the fact that in a Masters Tour final**even a CH tour one** a player like Bellucci that was not even close to the top 8 ranked players received a WC to play a tournament that is not an exhibition) . It is is also a great way to finish the year for Stebe.
Great idea this Challenger Tour final.

_Chaz

Stebe leading 5-2*!!! Good quality so far, both are playing very well.

Edit: Stebe wins 1st set 6-2.

This is pretty good from Cedrik, but Sela is awful today.

Lovely forehand winners from Stebe. He's really playing with confidence. The serve looks so much better than it did against Sela in the RR.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES Man! Hopefully now the world notices him as a promising youngster. I think he's fallen under the radar a bit so far. Or let's say he didn't get as much hype as Harrison or Berankis (I didn't include Tomic or Raonic because they are ranked way higher).

I liked the idea. I don´t like WC for Belluci, attendance, TV coverage, in fact, I don´t like it was held in Sao Paolo.

Also I don´t like points for that tournament. If someone win Helsinki, then gets even more than Stebe get. I would prefer 20 pts for win in group, 40 for win in semis and 60 for win in final, cause it should be ultimately the best what challenger circuit offer. It would be good to change the host city for next years.

Stebe has a really nice game, no weaknesses and he looks smart.

bleu_cheese
11-20-2011, 06:14 PM
I think Stebe could improve his volleys and his second serve. However, he's aggressive on return and good on both wings, plus pretty speedy. So, a promising future, for sure.

the only problem with this tournament is though that unless cedrik plays and does well enough on the challenger tour next year he's got no chance at all to defend his points and so come this time next year thats 125 points dropped off his total

unless they give him a wild card

Mahqz
11-20-2011, 07:06 PM
He can win a november challenger next year and getting more point as this week. It's the same like in every tournement. The points are dropped after one year...

wc for best brazilian in challenger next time I agree, but they need some excuse to attract the public
attendance was fine in the final despite having not bellucci in the final
tv coverage...looked fine for me at least when I watched...local brazilian tv showed almost all matches
It was held in Sao Paulo because it was sao paulo people that wanted sponsors and gave the idea for this event...imagine that they wanted this as a warmup for brasil open 2012...if the event doesnt work next year it miht change, but i think sao paulo people at least showed good intentions and planted the seed.
