Martin Kilzan of Slovakia maintained his record of never losing a final beating Uruguay’s Pablo Cuevas in the final of the German open. Breaking his opponent three times he dominated the contest to take his second ATP title of the year
In one of the few USA grass court tournament’s Croatian Ivo Karlovic came out on top to beat Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller in a tight contest that has no break of serve and was decided on a 12-10 final set tie break. It was third time lucky for Karlovic who had been beaten in the final for the previous two years in a row in the Newport, Rhode Island Hall of Fame Championship.
It was an all Spanish affair in Sweden where Albert Ramon Vinolas defeated Fernando Verdasco in straight sets to take the Swedish Open Title. Vinolas has lost his last three to Verdasco but came out on top on this occasion for his first ATP title 6-2, 6-3 with both men looking shaky on their own serve.
