New Haven: Wozniacki, Verdasco, Rain

Posted by gauloises1 on August 30, 2009

So rain played absolute havoc with the last couple of days in New Haven at the overly-sponsored tournament presented by capitalism. Or is that the one that’s about to happen in New York?

Anyway, Caroline Wozniacki successfully defended her title, beating Elena Vesnina 62 64 in the final.


Mind you, Vesnina beat Momo in the semis, so we don’t feel too bad for her. Still a great run for the Russian.

Also a great weekend for the Adidas Player Development Program, which works with three out of the four finalists and had a hand in both fist-pumping titlists.



Fernando Verdasco picked up his first title of the year, beating Igor Andreev and then Sam Querrey back-to-back in two tight matches. Great stuff.


Point of interest: he apparently had 12 family members travelling with him, many of whom were wearing ‘FeVer’ hats. Shudder.

Tough night for Querrey, who demolished Jose Acasuso in straights but started fatally slow in the final. He came back well in the second set, recovering from being on the brink of going a double break down to take it to a tiebreak in which he led for most of the time, but Verdasco was better in the end.

Never mind. On to New York.

    Speaking of fisting and pumping is the SwineFeVer still doing Polands #1??

    The FeVer hat doesn’t look good at all. Anyone know where to get his t-shirt? It looks like a famous tabasco sign. The shirt is cool.
