El español ha vencido al alemán Denis Gremelmayr por 6-2 y 6-4 Efe PEKÍN - 12/09/2007 09:35

El español Tommy Robredo, tercer cabeza de serie, se ha deshecho con facilidad por 6-2 y 6-4 del alemán Denis Gremelmayr, número 146 del mundo, en la primera ronda del Abierto de China.

El número ocho del mundo, que se estrenó en Pekín tras perder con el prometedor letón de 19 años Ernests Gulbis en el Abierto de Estados Unidos, no tuvo problemas con su rival, que cometió muchos fallos y al que venció en una hora y veinte minutos.

Con un 94 por ciento de primer servicio ganador y 17 errores no forzados del germano, Robredo pasó por el cemento rápido de Pekín apenas sin despeinarse. El primer set se saldó en 42 minutos con dos roturas de saque por parte del español, mientras que en el segundo Robredo consiguió romper el servicio de su contrincante en el séptimo juego para ponerse 4-3 por delante y hacerse con el partido manteniendo su saque.

Robredo: "El ataque es la mejor defensa"

Efe - 12/09/2007 12:35 El tenista español Tommy Robredo aseguró hoy que "el ataque es la mejor defensa" tras imponerse al alemán Denis Gremelmayr por un cómodo 6-2 y 6-4 en la primera ronda del Abierto de China.

Robredo, tercer cabeza de serie, indicó en conferencia de prensa que "ha sido un buen comienzo", y admitió la "mayor dureza" del segundo set tras el 6-2 inicial, propiciado por una doble ruptura de servicio al alemán en los primeros compases del duelo.

"Jugué con agresividad, rompiendo el servicio en ambos sets, y mi estrategia funcionó realmente bien", señaló el español.

En su estreno en el cemento rápido de Pekín, Robredo se mostró encantado con el público chino, "el más entusiasta que he visto nunca" y que "con sus aplausos, me han hecho sentirme como una estrella". El español aseguró que se esforzará al máximo por «vencer cada partido e incluso ganar el torneo".

Robredo begin ranking repair work
Spanish third seed Tommy Robredo joined Gonzalez in lifting his game while riding a ranking which has fallen from the Top 10. He scored a with a 6-2, 6-4 opening defeat of German Denis Gremelmayr.

Robredo, now standing 11th after dropping out of the elite for the first time since making his move upwards last May, will next face South African Rick de Voerst.

The Spaniard, who is competing in Beijing for the first time, can blame a pair of first-round losses at Montreal and Cincinnati over the summer for his slide from grace.

But the ranking rebuilding job in Asia got off to a workmanlike start as the seed broke twice in the opening set and once more in the second to go through in 79 minutes.

He fired five aces and saved two break points against the number 146.

"I tried to play that was because I thought it would be better for me," said the winner. "I wanted to move him around a bit.

"It was a good match, I started well with an early break in the first set. The second was closer but I held serve easily, so it was a good match."

Robredo and Ljubicic roll onPublished: Thursday, 13 September, 2007, 06:13 AM Doha Time

BEIJING: Spain’s Tommy Robredo and Croatia’s Ivan Ljubicic, rebounding from disappointing performances at the US Open, cruised through their matches at the China Open yesterday.

Robredo and Ljubicic, who both suffered third-round losses at the last Grand Slam of the year, are favourites to reach the final at the Beijing tennis centre.

The third-seeded Spaniard, who has fallen from the Top 10 for the first time since May, defeated Germany’s Denis Gremelmayr 6-2, 6-4 to move into a second round match-up with South Africa’s Rik de Voest.

“It was a good match,” said Robredo. “You normally don’t know how you are going to feel.

“I started well with an early break in the first set. The second was closer, but I held serve easily, so it was a good match.”

The Spaniard said his strategy of playing longer points had worked well. “I tried to play that way because I thought it would be better for me. I wanted to move him around a bit,” he said after ousting the 26-year-old German journeyman.
The Spaniard’s poor summer season on hard courts—including first-round losses at the Masters events in Montreal and Cincinnati - sent him plummeting down the ATP rankings.

Nevertheless, he has still reached at least the quarter-finals in 10 events and lifted the fifth trophy of his career at Sopot in July

.
Ljubicic, the fourth seed here, crushed Serbia’s Viktor Troicki 6-1, 6-1 to reach the quarter-finals, while Korean sixth seed Lee Hyung-taik got past German Bjorn Phau 7-6 (7/4), 6-1.

Ljubicic, competing in the Chinese capital for the second straight year, reached the quarter-finals a year ago.
The inexperienced Troicki, ranked 139 in the world, was playing in just his sixth career ATP-level match, but he upset compatriot and US Open finalist Novak Djokovic on clay in Umag two months ago.
n BELGRADE: Novak Djokovic, buoyed by his first Grand Slam appearance at the US Open, says he is confident of capturing world No. 2 Rafael Nadal in the year-end rankings race, Serbian media reported yesterday.
"I know that there is a chance for me to catch Nadal by the end of the year," the 20-year-old told a press conference at Belgrade airport after jetting in from New York, according to the daily Sportski Zurnal.
Djokovic secured his first trip to the prestigious season-ending Masters Cup in Shanghai at the US Open, where he lost 7-6 (7/4), 7-6 (7/2), 6-4 in the final to world No. 1 Roger Federer after squandering seven set points.
The Serb sensation added however that his immediate goal was to lead Serbia into the elite stages of the Davis Cup in a play-off against Lleyton Hewitt's Australia next week. (AFP)

DICE QUE DEBE ADAPTARSE A TODO TIPO DE PISTA
Robredo: "Si no juegas bien en pista dura es imposible estar en el top ten"
Tommy Robredo, número ocho mundial y que disputará este sábado una de las semifinales en el cemento del Abierto de China, dijo que es imposible estar entre los mejores jugadores sólo a base de tierra batida, superficie favorita de los españoles.

"Si no juegas bien en superficie dura es imposible estar en el 'top' de la clasificación. Por eso los españoles estamos jugando tanto en este tipo de superficie", afirmó tras el partido de cuartos en el que derrotó con solvencia al ruso Igor Kunitsyn.

"Cuando era joven comencé jugando en superficie dura pero luego, al ir a Barcelona, me cambié a tierra batida. Sin embargo, como jugador profesional debo adaptarme a todo tipo de pista porque del 65 al 70 por ciento de los torneos son en superficie dura. Y ahora gano tantos en esta pista como en tierra batida", afirmó.

Pese a su buen juego, el de Hostalric no quiso aventurar una final entre él y el chileno Fernando González, que se enfrentará en la otra semifinal al croata Ivan Ljubicic, que pese a estar jugando un buen torneo arrastra una pequeña lesión. "Sólo veo las semifinales. No quiero mirar más allá porque las cosas hay que hacerlas partido a partido", apuntó.

Robredo se enfrentará al alemán Nicolas Kiefer, actualmente perdido en la clasificación de la ATP pero sobre el que destacó que es "un gran jugador" con una "gran movilidad", condición a su juicio imprescindible para llegar alto en el torneo pequinés

SERÁ EL QUINTO ENFRENTAMIENTO ENTRE AMBOS JUGADORES
Robredo y González se medirán en la final de Pekín
DAVID MENAYO /Agencias

Dos viejos conocidos volverán a enfrentarse con un título en juego. El español Tommy Robredo y el chileno Fernando González se disputarán el torneo de Pekín (China), dotado con 500.000 dólares en premios, tras doblegar al teutón Nikolas Kiefer y el croata Ivan Ljubicic en sus respectivas semifinales.

Tommy Robredo, tercer cabeza de serie del torneo pekinés, doblegó al alemán Nikolas Kiefer por un marcador global de 7-6 y 7-5 en dos horas y veinte minutos y lograba de esta forma su segunda final del año. En la primera manga, un contundente servicio y un buen resto permitieron al catalán ponerse con un 5-4 a su favor y sirviendo, pero su rival, en una excelente reacción con continuas subidas a la red, consiguió igualar la contienda y forzar luego la muerte súbita. El tie-break no pudo empezar mejor para Tommy, que consiguió ponerse 6-1 por delante. Pero, de nuevo, el pundonor del veterano germano hizo sudar al español, que finalmente se anotó la muerte súbita por 7-5. En el segundo set, el español templó más los nervios y se trabajó la manga para cerrar el partido con un último parcial de 7-5.

González volvió por sus fueros

Fernando González se clasificó para la final del Abierto de China tras batir al croata Ivan Ljubicic por 2-6, 6-3 y 6-4 en la primera semifinal del torneo. El tenista chileno, segundo cabeza de serie, tuvo que emplearse a fondo y remontar un set en contra para deshacerse del croata, en un encuentro que duró una hora y 58 minutos y en el que ambos rivales, a la misma altura, acusaron el cansancio acumulado en la semana del torneo.

El sudamericano se ha reencontrado en la pista central de Pekín con la senda de triunfos tras ocho semanas en las que solo conoció la derrota, y pese a un comienzo dubitativo, ha ido creciendo en confianza y juego. Este sábado hizo un ejercicio de concentración para sobreponerse al 2-6 inicial, fruto de la potente salida a pista de Ljubicic, que rentabilizó al máximo sus dos únicos puntos de rotura de servicio. El número siete del mundo, de 27 años, basó en su saque la reacción de la segunda manga, en la que el croata bajó ostensiblemente su nivel, y mantuvo su firmeza en el tercer set, donde desequilibró la balanza 'in extremis', rompiendo el servicio de Ljubicic en el juego decisivo.

Head to head igualado

Tommy y Fernando se han encontrado en cuatro ocasiones en el circuito ATP, con un balance de partidos de dos victorias para cada tenista. El chileno ganó en Viña del Mar 2001 y Open de Australia 2002; y el español se tomó cumplida venganza en Stuttgart 2003 y Conde de Godó 2004.

EL TENISTA ESPAÑOL CONFÍA EN ADJUDICARSE EL ABIERTO DE CHINA
Robredo: "Creo que puedo ganar a González"

http://www.marca.com/ficheros/marca/...354x215_ES.jpg

El español Tommy Robredo mostró su confianza en derrotar mañana al chileno Fernando González en la final del Abierto de China, la primera a la que llega el de Hostalric desde el pasado enero. "Si consigo jugar a un buen nivel creo que puedo ganar a González", afirmó el tercer preclasificado en el torneo pequinés, dotado con unos 500.000 dólares.

Sobre la estrategia que empleará en su duelo con el "Bombardero" chileno, afirmó: "Nunca me importa demasiado contra quien juego, simplemente jugaré mi juego y lo daré todo como siempre". Robredo aseguró que optó por venir a la superficie dura de Pekín, y no a la tierra batida del torneo de Rumanía esta misma semana, porque viene del Abierto de EEUU y los próximos torneos serán también en cemento.

"Me gusta China. La gente es muy agradable", añadió el tenista de 25 años, que tiene un nutrido club de fans en Pekín que, en su semifinal con el alemán Nicolas Kiefer, no dejaron de alentarlo y corear su nombre: "Lobeledo, Lobeledo".

González: "Puedo jugar mucho mejor"

Por su parte, el chileno Fernando González afirmó respecto a esta cita que puede "jugar mucho mejor" y recordó que si no gana, no podrá estar en el Masters Series de Shanghai. González, segundo cabeza de serie, se impuso a Ljubicic por 2-6, 6-3 y 6-4, y explicó sobre el partido que empezó "perdiendo muchos puntos" y luego tuvo "la paciencia para aprovechar las oportunidades", una concentración que le sirvió para culminar la remontada.

"Ljubicic tiene un servicio enorme, ha sido duro", añadió el chileno de 27 años, quien recordó, no obstante, que "lo más importante es tratar de ganar (la final)". "Speedy Gonzalez", como se le conoce en el circuito, no mostró preferencias respecto a su rival en la final del torneo, dotado con 500.000 dólares en premios, que posteriormente se confirmó que será el español Tommy Robredo tras vencer al alemán Nikolas Kiefer.

"Los dos son muy buenos. Va a ser tan duro como hoy", respondió a los periodistas.

Robredo last obstacle to Gonzalez winning China Open tennis title
9 hours ago

BEIJING (AFP) — Chilean Fernando Gonzalez will bid to end a title drought of nearly two years on Sunday as he takes on Spain's Tommy Robredo in the China Open final.

The on-fire Gonzalez, seeded second, hammered seven aces and broke five times to defeat Croatian Ivan Ljubicic 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 Saturday.

Third seed Robredo continued a successful debut week in the capital with a defeat of German Nicolas Kiefer, a former Hong Kong winner, 7-6 (7/5), 7-5.

Robredo improved his 2007 semi-final record to 3-1 after his tight win in two hours, 17 minutes with a break of the German in the final game.

Gonzalez has not won a trophy since Basel in November, 2005 while Robredo claimed Sopot on clay in July.

The Spaniard is fighting to regain his Top 10 ranking after arriving in China outside of the elite group for the first time since May 2006.

Robredo needed 74 minutes to win the marathon opening set, with the second progressing at only a slightly faster pace.

The Spaniard stands 2-2 with Gonzalez, winning their last two meetings in 2003 and 2004.

The second-seeded Gonzalez has ended a four-match loss streak with his performance in Beijing.

"I'm really happy to be winning and getting back to my best," said Gonzalez, who triumphed despite 23 unforced errors. "But I think I can play better."

Ljubicic said he was feeling the pace of a Friday tiebreak victory over defending champion Marcos Baghdatis. The Croatian dumped a forehand into the net on match point as Gonzalez went through.

"I was very tired, and didn't have enough time to recover," said Ljubicic. "After 6-2, 2-0, I began to lose energy and couldn't play my game."

Gonzalez, January's Australian Open finalist against Roger Federer, won his third semi-final of the season to keep his 2007 mark at the final-four stage impeccable.

The South American went through a series of tests this week at the Beijing tennis centre, coming through three times in three-setters to stand 4-0 in the capital.

The pair now stand 4-4 overall with Ljubicic winning their last meeting in Vienna last October in the final.

Gonzalez lost the first set quickly before steadying to take the win. "I was missing many points and had to stay patient and wait for the right opportunities.

"Ljubicic's a great player. He's been among the top players for years and has a really huge serve," he said.

Ljubicic, winner of titles this season in Qatar and the Netherlands, was unable to get past the second seed despite four breaks of serve in a competitive contest completed in just under two hours.

Tommys press conference after the Kiefer match:

15/9 Robredo After Match Press Conference

http://sports.sina.com.cn 2007Äê09ÔÂ15ÈÕ23:10 China Open

¡¡¡¡R: Congratulations on your success. When you were playing, your opponent often sneaked to the net, was it because your returning the ball was nearer to the net? Tomorrow you will play against Gonzalez, will you change your strategy?

¡¡¡¡Robredo: No. Every match is different. Every player is different. I just want to play my game and reach my good level.

¡¡¡¡R: You made two mistakes when you were smashing the ball. Was it because of the light in the court?

¡¡¡¡Robredo: Yes. It was so light that I couldn¡¯t see the ball clearly. You had to watch up and felt that it was coming. You didn¡¯t know where it is. It was the same to my opponent. He missed some points because of that too. That was why I hit some big lobs and saw if he could get it. It was tough.

¡¡¡¡R: This week there is another clay court tournament in Romania and you say you are good in the clay court. Why do you choose to play hard court in Beijing?

¡¡¡¡Robredo: I like China. I just come from US Open and it was hard court. I don¡¯t want to change that. The next four tournaments are all the indoor hard court matches and it doesn¡¯t make sense to change in one week .That¡¯s why I ¡®m here. It¡¯s nice to be here and people here are nice.

From Tommy's Website:

FIESTA EN MADRID

Después de haber llegado a la final en Beijing, y de haber estado más de un mes jugando torneos por Estados Unidos, la pasada semana Tommy se tomó unos días de descanso. Estuvo en Olot con su familia y amigos, desconectando de tantas semanas de viajes, hoteles, torneos y aviones...Esta semana ha empezado ha entrenar fuerte en el CAR, ya que el sábado se va para jugar el torneo en Metz. Después del torneo francés se irá a Estocolmo, Madrid , Lyon y por último París. Son los últimos torneos de la temporada, y este año también hay que conseguir clasificarse para el Masters de Shanghai.

A pesar de que Tommy esta centrado el 99% en su tenis, el pasado miércoles se escapó a Madrid para acudir a la fiesta que organizó la revista Men’s Health. Allí recibió el premio a Hombre con Estilo que le entregó la guapa modelo y presentadora Mar Saura. En cuanto las tengamos os enseñaremos las fotos de la glamurosa noche!

Saludos a todos
