ATP Tuesday Results: Bastad, Stuttgart

Posted by gauloises1 on July 14, 2009

Mixed fortunes for the Davis Cup survivors today, as Jose Acasuso and Andreas Beck (who both lost rubbers over the weekend) were dumped out of Stuttgart by Jeremy Chardy and Simon Greul respectively, and Tomas Berdych – who has a right to be exhausted if anyone does – lost in straight sets to Nicholas Kiefer, 63 63.

On the other hand, Pico came back strongly in Bastad, beating eighth-seeded compatriot Maximo Gonzalez in three sets. Guillermo Canas took out Grigor “still learning” Dmitrov, qualifier Potito “serious business” Starace beat Julien Benneteau, and adorable Bjorn Phau beat the Roland Garros junior champion, Daniel Berta.

We’ll be keeping an eye on this one. Unfortunate tongue placement aside.

Monday Results: Bstaad, Budapest, Newport

Posted by gauloises1 on July 7, 2009

It. Never. Stops. Seriously.

But as you know, here at YFB we feel *all* tennis is important. (What idiot came up with that philosophy?!). Sorry for the lack of a preview. I barely know my own name at this point.

In Bstaad, all eyes are on Caroline Wozniacki. Who didn’t play today. But I’ll tell you who did! Sorana Cirstea, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Carla Suarez Navarro, and Gisela Dulko are all through to the second round. Actually, that’s not a bad field. Not by half.

And any tournament which features Gisela and Flavia playing doubles is pretty much fine with me.

In Budapest, Alona Bondarenko beat Karolina Sprem. Doesn’t *everybody* beat Karolina Sprem these days? And in Newport, bewilderingly popular Taylor Dent, Daniel Brands and Samuel Groth all progressed, along with some other people.

Yes, I’m hanging on to my grasp of current tennis events by my fingernails. Thanks for noticing. Full results below.
