Re: Granby CH F: Kavčič def. Polansky 6:3, 2:6, 7:5

Also interesting that between 2009 and 2012 Kavčič won 7 out of 8 Challenger titles on clay. Since 2013 he won 8 out of 8 titles on hard :eek:

Joao Sousa already played a few matches against Pedro Sousa.

Too bad, they already played a very close final at some French clay challenger earlier this year. I hope next year Julian can have some success at Atp tour level!
