If Brands won't win it with Crugnola he should go down a level to the futures.

07-03-2011, 07:36 PM
of course marius and andi get drawn to play eachother in the 2nd round:rolleyes:

Filo V.
07-03-2011, 07:38 PM
Simon has a nice draw. A SF is a requirement. His SF match will be difficult, though.

Hopefully Simon wins the event. No other winner will be acceptable.

07-03-2011, 07:51 PM
Btw AHM hurt his ankle at the Austrian Championships last year but played (and won) vs Malisse today (German league match).
Yesterday he said in his blog that he doesn't know if he's playing here because he has a packed schedule in the next week and doesn't want to damage his ankle even more.

07-03-2011, 08:08 PM
Good luck to Fernandes :)

07-03-2011, 09:10 PM
Bad news about AHM. He would win it otherwise IMO.

GL to Gawron, he'll need it ;)

07-04-2011, 05:20 PM
Rufin beat Flock 6-3 6-2
Ciric beat Mesaros 4-6 6-2 7-6 (6)
Capkovic beat Nieminen 6-2 6-1
Stadler beat Kirche 3-6 7-6 (5) 6-2

Bednarek/Kowalczyk beat Konecny/Trujillo-Soler 6-4 2-6 10-7

07-04-2011, 05:21 PM
Good luck to Fernandes :)

Zimmermann is absolutely thrashing him at the moment, 1-5*

07-04-2011, 06:35 PM
Zimmermann is absolutely thrashing him at the moment, 1-5*

Poor Tiago!:eek:

07-04-2011, 06:49 PM
Btw AHM has withdrawn from the event.
Now Stebe has a chance to defend a few points from his final last year, but he has a tough 1st round in Crivoi.

07-04-2011, 08:17 PM
Zimmermann is absolutely thrashing him at the moment, 1-5*


Lost 6-1, 6-2 but he is still in doubles I think. He had a bad singles draw anyway, probably would face the #1 seed if he'd won :(

07-04-2011, 08:18 PM
Zimmermann is absolutely thrashing him at the moment, 1-5*

Final Score 61 62!

07-04-2011, 10:00 PM
It's a really big chance for Stebe now. This is an open tournament atm.

I obviously hope Gawron can upset Fischer, but probably he can't :rolleyes:

07-05-2011, 07:22 AM
Kudryavtsev dispatched Molchanov 6-1 6-1.

07-05-2011, 11:07 AM
Is it raining or what happened to the Stebe-Crivoi match?

07-05-2011, 11:09 AM
Stebe is leading 6-2 and 3-0 crivoi serving. i just called tournament office.

07-05-2011, 11:11 AM
Thanks. :) So only the scoreboard on this court has a problem...

07-05-2011, 11:15 AM
:woohoo: It's back. Stebe serving for the match. 62 51.

07-05-2011, 11:23 AM
Stebe - Crivoi 6:2, 6:1

07-05-2011, 01:05 PM
knittel took the first set over copil 7-5

marius was up 4-2 in that first set:mad:

07-05-2011, 01:19 PM
9 double faults for marius already in the match

seems he's fighting himself more than anything out there

07-05-2011, 01:24 PM
marius gets the break in the 2nd set


07-05-2011, 01:28 PM
aufffffff gatessss bastian

07-05-2011, 01:28 PM
and givs it right back:rolleyes:

07-05-2011, 01:46 PM

bastian blown it

07-05-2011, 02:00 PM
marius cruising now, and serving much better in the 3rd set


Filo V.
07-05-2011, 02:22 PM
Copil won 5-7 6-4 6-2

I expected it to be a battle, good that the Romanian came through. Dominant on serve in the third.

Filo V.
07-05-2011, 02:23 PM
Simon won, I'm surprised he lost a set to Semjan though. He really needs this event so hopefully he keeps it going.

07-05-2011, 06:19 PM
any idea what happened in match Ghem - Hernych? Scoreboard stuck in 3rd set at score 21*...

07-05-2011, 07:08 PM
Ghem won 6-1 in the third.

Copil v Beck will be very interesting. As will Rufin v Stebe.

Filo V.
07-05-2011, 10:38 PM
Brands actually has a pretty good draw to the SF. I wonder if he'll revive and take advantage.

07-05-2011, 11:59 PM
Copil v Beck will be very interesting. As will Rufin v Stebe.

who are you favoring?

i take beck over copil if marius continues to double fault in such high numbers, he had 10 today

and i take rufin over stebe

07-06-2011, 07:21 AM
Beck and Stebe IMO :unsure:

Ad Wim
07-06-2011, 08:56 AM
Yes Aguilar, what a great win!

07-06-2011, 01:54 PM
who are you favoring?

i take beck over copil if marius continues to double fault in such high numbers, he had 10 today

and i take rufin over stebe

Surely Beck and Stebe are favoured to win :shrug:

07-06-2011, 01:54 PM
Greul dismissed Stadler 6-3 6-4

Ghem at the moment leading against Zimmermann 6-4 *2-3.

Pretty hard to believe :o It'd be quite surprising if Ghem reached the QF here.

Ad Wim
07-06-2011, 05:51 PM
Mentally great from Stebe. 5-3 down, very long game to finally break, then 15-40 at 5-4, and eventually won the set 7-5.

07-06-2011, 06:02 PM
Cedrik is just a beast these days :)

07-06-2011, 06:16 PM
Yeah Stebe!
He really should beat Ghem and then probably Fischer wouldn't be that hard opponent either. Of course, he lost to the Austrian in the final last year, but that was his 1st challenger final and he's improved very much since then.

I guess Stebe is one of these guys who like the "altitude clay" ;)
You know, Oberstaufen is about 750 metres high, so that's even higher than Madrid for example.

Good win for Stebe over Rufin. Sounds like he fought hard for the victory. Also happy Simon won again, he needs to continue taking advantage of his draw.

07-07-2011, 12:49 PM
Brands def. Cervenak 6-1 6-4

Finding some form.

07-07-2011, 01:36 PM
andi beck and marius copil on court

marius to serve

07-07-2011, 02:01 PM
marius ahead an early break


07-07-2011, 02:02 PM
Stebe defends the final here, obviously he likes the courts

07-07-2011, 02:05 PM
marius up 5-2 over beck

07-07-2011, 02:24 PM
Beck 2-5 to 7-5.

07-07-2011, 03:01 PM
marius is just absolutely dreadful on break points, its so incredibly easy to break him

you wouldnt think a guy with a serve like his would be that easy to break but it is

andi beck wins 7-5, 6-4

happy fort him because i do want him to win this event

Filo V.
07-07-2011, 03:05 PM
Beck is a little more solid than Copil is in terms of errors. The big difference it the serve, though. Copil served a fewer than 50% first serves. If he serves the way he usually does he probably would have won.

07-07-2011, 05:05 PM
Brands an easy draw he can make a SF here now, when he must play on higher level he can do it easily.

07-07-2011, 08:15 PM

andi fought back from a break down against andujar twice now in the opening set

leading 5-4 currently and on serve

07-08-2011, 12:24 PM
andi beck railed 1-3 and 3-4 but has broken for a 3rd time and taken the set 6-4

07-08-2011, 01:01 PM

Damn, what a bad loss against this all-serve guy, pff...

Filo V.
07-08-2011, 02:05 PM
A terrible loss for Simon, but Ciric served well and Simon didn't, and playing guys like Ciric, that's all that makes the difference. He needed to do well with 45 points off his ranking next week, so this is a missed opportunity.

Andi Beck is still in the event and is probably the favorite to win it, so hopefully he gets it done, and saves the event.

07-08-2011, 04:57 PM
lol Greul. So apparently Ciric has something else than serve?

Ad Wim
07-08-2011, 05:18 PM

07-09-2011, 11:40 AM

07-09-2011, 12:04 PM

07-09-2011, 12:28 PM
andi breaks when ciric was serving for it, now hold!

07-09-2011, 12:35 PM
andi manages to hold on to his serve


07-09-2011, 12:53 PM
andi takes the set 7-6(7-5)

he missed like 6 set points though

had 30-40 and adv. twice up 6-5 then was up 6-2 in the tiebreaker

Ad Wim
07-09-2011, 01:26 PM
This ace count is amazing. Strange thing also that he doesn't hit this many aces every match. It varies.

07-09-2011, 01:28 PM
not amazing its annoying, andi better not lose to this serve bot

07-09-2011, 01:37 PM
andi beck serving for the match

07-09-2011, 01:42 PM
and ofcourse he gets broken

07-09-2011, 01:48 PM

andi beck wins 7-6(7-5), 7-6(7-0)

Ad Wim
07-09-2011, 01:49 PM
Nice one Andi, almost won every point on serve that was not an ace :D

07-09-2011, 01:56 PM
just sucks that even if he wins this event it really wont help his ranking to much

07-10-2011, 12:11 PM
gret marsel is losing in scheveningen and andi is losing to brands here:mad:

07-10-2011, 01:27 PM
brands def. andi 6-4, 7-6(7-3)

absolutely awful result for the game when this rediculous clown is winning at any level, i just want him to fade away but apparently he's to stubborn to do that

to bad for andi

Filo V.
07-10-2011, 01:38 PM
Gotta give Daniel credit, great serving statistics this week, and I guess playing in Germany and his ranking collapsing gave him extra motivation.

If you're Beck, it's these sorts of results that will prevent him from returning to the top 100. Very disappointing.

07-10-2011, 01:49 PM
The german GOAT exploding again :lol:
