Estoril, Munich, Belgrade Finals
Posted by gauloises1 on May 10, 2009
First up, congratulations to Yanine Wickmayer of Belgium (a.k.a. the Belgian Sharapova … apparently), who won her first WTA singles title in Estoril when she defeated Ekaterina Makarova 75 62.
She played a solid, focussed match and seeing someone get their first title is always lovely. Well done, Yanine.
Unfortunately rain messed up the rest of the day’s play in Estoril. The first ATP finalist is Albert Montanes, who beat Capdeville 3 and 4. The second semifinal was rained off with Blake a set down but a break up on Davydenko, so it’s all still to be decided.
In Munich, both semifinals went to 3 sets, but Youzhny and Berdych – somewhat predictably – managed it in the end over local wildcard and hitherto total unknown Brands, and Chardy respectively.
And at the Nole Open, all our worst fears have come true.
HE WILL EAT YOUR BRAINS.
NB: All the above was crafted while massively drunk and is probably not true.
