Zitko def. Ryderstedt 6-7 6-2 6-4
Ryderstedt was very nervous and unlucky ... nothing even close to the level he played in previous matches. He is very, very sad right now. Zitko is a solid player who has good passing shots, amazing luck, and plays the lines! The conditions were not nice - sharp sun and the strong wind. And leafs on the court, and the court staff said they couldn't remove those leafs
. We guess if Dani still was here, the staff would be cleaning it pretty quickly.
Overall, it was a good tournament. I wouldn't say the level was brilliant, but some players were interesting to watch, and some scores (like the semifinal of Koniusz) for us to be happy about. The organization was very good, which the players and the supervisor also admit.
Thank you for being here with me during the week.
