The Tel Aviv resident is the first Israeli to reach an ATP singles final since Harel Levy at Nottingham in 2001 (l to T. Johansson) and was bidding to become the first title winner since Amos Mansdorf at 1993 Washington (d. Martin).

The 5’9’’ right-hander, who is the top-ranked Israeli, has improved to 15-21 for the season on the strength of his results this week, which is already an improvement on his previous career-best of 10-5, recorded last year.

"Overall I feel very good," said the 92-ranked Sela. "I played a good match and I had some chances but I hope next time I’m going to do better. It gives me a lot of confidence. I showed myself that I can play with the big players and hopefully I’ll continue like that and improve my game a little bit and improve my ranking of course."

Sela makes his first ATP final, and meets Roddick in the final
By Krystle Lee | September 27th, 2008

Following the excitement and drama of Davis Cup last week, it was back to business as usual on the ATP tour as some of the players made their way to Asia to play in either Beijing or Bangkok. Unlike Davis Cup, the matches that took place this week were all about the tennis, with crowds being in both tournaments being sparsely populated and players being treated to nothing more than a polite applause, although for a brief moment yesterday, Andy Roddick’s name was chanted enthusiastically by a small group of Chinese fans.

This week was the start of the Asian tennis season, which briefly lasts two weeks and ends in Tokyo next week although it will be expanded from next year where Shanghai will be awarded an indoor Masters Series event. The results that took place in both tournaments were contrasting, with upsets galore in Beijing while the top four seeds navigated their way into the semi-finals stage.

Clearly the man of this week has been Dudi Sela, from Israel, who earned his way into the Beijing finals defeating the likes of David Ferrer, Tommy Robredo and Rainer Schuettler. Sela, currently ranked 92nd in the world, had previously never advanced past the quarter-finals of an ATP event. Prior to this week’s efforts, he was most known for carrying Israel into the Davis Cup world group by defeating Nicolas Massu and most notably Fernando Gonzalez in five sets.

Sela is another one of those players who has a very natural feel for the game, in a similar vein to Olivier Rochus but without the hustle and determination (or to a lesser extent anyway). His groundstrokes, which lack the necessary punch to threaten at the highest level, are fluid, effortless and difficult to read especially on his one-handed backhand. His shots rely mainly on timing, and in this particular match against Schuettler he was striking the ball particularly well, resulting in a comfortable 6-3 6-3 win over the German. His backhand is his big weapon - he can generate numerous winners off that side or throw in a slice backhand for variety which often forced errors out of Schuettler especially in the first set. Early on in the match, I noticed Sela in one point which was being evenly contested, suddenly unleash a backhand down-the-line winner out of nowhere, completely taking Schuettler by surprise. I watched his backhand closely to notice that Sela takes his racquet back early in preparation but has the ability to hold it before completing his swing, making it almost impossible for his opponent to read where it is going. Because of this, he was also able to increase the pace on his shots using the same backswing which allowed him to take control of points by taking his opponents by surprise. But you can also see the downside to this sort of approach because Sela can get pushed back to playing a more defensive game, or get rushed into error by a bigger hitter.

In the match against Schuettler, it was interesting to note the contrasting styles between both players. Schuettler has a fairly mechanical game in that the effort he puts in is obvious to make sure that he sets himself in the right position, and how he throws his body weight forward to try and maximize the amount of power he can generate. Schuettler generally plays a high percentage game in that he usually likes to keep the ball going crosscourt and only pulls the trigger if he sees the opportunity to do so, although he has the variety to come to the net to finish off points. Schuettler is fairly good from a tactical point of view, and his shots are usually struck with purpose. In the second set, he tried to change the rhythm of the match by taking more risks, hitting with more pace and coming into the net more often, but it was not enough to change the outcome of the match. Sela took a more instinctive and reactive approach to his tennis, often coming up with winners on the run, or shots that were able to turn the point in his favour. While Sela won the first set relatively comfortably with two service breaks, the first four games of the second set went on serve until Sela broke serve with a flourish, first firing a forehand winner down-the-line on the run, then two lobs over Schuettler’s head to take control of the match. By the end of the match, Schuetttler’s frustration became obvious as he began to talk to himself, knowing that he had run out of ideas.

Dudi
Tough loss, but awsome week, he showed great tennis, the best of his life, and kept it for few matches.
Dudi is 66 in the world now, he still have many points to defend from last year if he wants to stay in the top 100, I hope he'll defend them succesfully.

Kadima Dudi, you can do it!!!
