Re: Week 4: Heilbronn, Germany (Semifinals)
Really tough tournament. The SF line up is really good. Stebe looks like the favourite to win here with fantastic victories over Greul, Becker and Berrer. Now has another tough SF clash with Bemelmans who also didn't have easy matches either against Donskoy, Knittel and Pospisil. I reckon that Stebe has a slice advantage to win that SF match.
On the upper side of the draw Phau got some good victories like the ones over Zemlja and Klizan. Meffert had it a bit easier against Golubev and de Voest.
Stebe looks as one of the best players on the CH tour and good enough for them but he will need some time until he can get use to play with ATP players. He may suffer some defeats in the following months but he will make it.
