El tenista azuleño Federico Delbonis se consagró este sábado campeón del Challenger de Cali, Colombia, luego de derrotar al brasileño Guilherme Clezar en la final por 7-6 (12/10) y 7-5. Delbonis, héroe del equipo de Copa Davis 2016 y número 69 del ranking mundial, superó a Clezar (232º) para conquistar su segundo título de 2017 en esta categoría. El anterior había sido en Todi, Italia. En el Challenger de Cali, con premios por 50.000 dólares, Delbonis llegó a la final al dejar en el camino al chileno Gonzalo Lama (506º), al español Iñigo Cervantes (247º), al esloveno Blaz Rola (236º) y al austríaco Gerard Melzer (142º).

Toda la data de las finales

Si bien este fin de semana no habrá actividad deportiva en Argentina debido a las elecciones legislativas, sí habrá representantes nacionales disputando instancias decisivas de diferentes certámenes en el exterior. Dentro del tenis, tanto Juan Martín Del Potro como Diego Schwartzman saltarán a la cancha para jugar las finales del ATP de Estocolmo y Amberes, respectivamente. A continuación, Olé te trae una guía para que estés informado de cara a los dos grandes atractivos de este domingo. Juan Martín Del Potro ¿Contra quién? Del Potro, ubicado en el puesto 19 del ranking ATP, jugará contra el búlgaro Grigor Dimitrov (8º). El historial entre ambos favorece al argentino por 5-2 tras haberlo vencido en Rotterdam y París 2013, más Stuttgart y Estocolmo 2016, y Roma 2017, pero el europeo le ganó los dos últimos cruces, este año en Cincinnati y Beijing, lo que enciende una alarma. Es la primera final de la temporada de Delpo, quien busca del vigésimo título de su carrera. ¿Por qué torneo? El partido corresponde a la final del ATP 250 de Estocolmo, el cual Del Potro ya ganó en el 2016. El torneo de Estocolmo se juega sobre superficie dura indoor y, además de puntos para el escalafón mundial, entrega casi 700.000 dólares en premios. ¿A qué hora? Está estipulado que el encuentro comience alrededor de las 10.30 de la mañana (no antes de las 10.00). ¿Quién lo televisa? Irá por Directv Sports en las señales 616 del básico y 1616 del HD. La nota de la victoria de Del Potro en la semifinal ante Verdasco, acá. Diego Schwartzman ¿Contra quién? Schwartzman, quien se ubica en el lugar 26 del ranking ATP, enfrentará al francés Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (17º) en busca de su segundo título ATP después de ganar en Estambul en 2016. Será el primer enfrentamiento entre ambos en el circuito. Lo harán en la final belga, donde ya estuvo hace un año el argentino, superado entonces por otro francés: Richard Gasquet. ¿Por qué torneo? Será por la final del ATP 250 de Amberes, el cual se juega sobre una superficie dura y bajo techo y reparte 589.185 euros en premios. ¿A qué hora? El partido del Peque ante Tsonga comenzará a las 11.15. ¿Quién lo televisa? Se podrá ver por la pantalla de Directv Sports en las señales 617 del básico y 1617 del HD. La nota de la victoria de Schwartzman en la semifinal ante Tsitsipas, acá.

El gran gesto de Delpo

Juan Martín Del Potro sigue dando motivos para que los argentinos se sientan orgullosos. Esta vez fue por su triunfo los cuartos de final del ATP de Estocolmo, ante el japonés Yuichi Sugita. Era match point para el tandilense, quien luego de un fuerte servicio, frenó inesperadamente el punto, nadie entendía por qué. Enseguida, en una charla con el juez de línea, el argentino le explicó que su saque había sido malo, y para confirmarlo pidió revisar el punto con el Ojo de Halcón. Efectivamente el saque había sido malo y el punto se volvió a jugar. Finalmente, Delpo ganó el punto y el partido por 6-2 y 7-6 (6), consiguiendo así su pase a la semifinal del torneo que defiende. Es más, este torneo fue el último que la Torre de Tandil ganó. El sábado, Juan Martín enfrentará al español Fernando Verdasco, quien venció al sudafricano Kevin Anderson. El tandilense, 19° del ranking mundial, necesita los puntos de este torneo si pretende clasificarse al Masters de Londres. Mientras en el fútbol se discute por la inclusión del VAR, Del Potro demostró que es posible usar la tecnología con honestidad. Mirá el gran gesto del tandilense. [VID]OLEVID20171020_0020[/VID]

Shapovalov Clinches Milan Berth With Opening Basel Victory

Denis Shapovalov continued his rise by qualifying for the inaugural Next Gen ATP Finals, guaranteeing his spot with a hard-fought 4-6, 6-2, 7-6(3) victory over Yuichi Sugita in two hours on Monday at the Swiss Indoors Basel. “Just kept at it,” Shapovalov said. “It’s great to get a win back under my belt. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, so I’m very happy I was able to turn around the match and fight my way through it.” The Canadian left-hander became the fourth player to qualify for the year-end event in Milan from 7-11 November, something he could not have imagined at the beginning of the year. “I’m very excited," Shapovalov said. "I heard about the event at the start of the year. I thought there was probably no chance that I was going to make it this year. But with a couple of good results in the summer I put myself in a good position. The last couple weeks I’ve been trying to see how I can qualify and who I need to lose so that I could qualify but I guess with my win today I did that so I’m very, very proud of myself and hopefully I can play really well there.” Although Shapovalov let slip a 4-1 lead in the third set, the 18 year old managed to right his ship and take out his tough Japanese opponent. And while Shapovalov qualified for Milan, another player significantly boosted his chances in the Emirates ATP Race To Milan. Hyeon Chung played a strong match to oust ATP World Tour veteran Paolo Lorenzi, 6-3, 6-1 in one hour, 36 minutes. The South Korean moved into seventh in the Race, the final qualifying spot, with 805 points, passing Daniil Medvedev, who has 772 points. Swiss veteran Marco Chiudinelli played the final match of his career. Robin Haase eliminated the home favourite, 6-2, 7-6(3). Chiudinelli finishes his career with 52 tour-level wins and 185 victories on the ATP Challenger Tour, where he claimed three titles (2004 Donetsk, 2009 Tenerife, 2016 Wroclaw). The 36-year-old’s best tour-level result came in Basel eight years ago, when he advanced to the semi-finals before falling to good friend Roger Federer, who was in the crowd on Monday to watch what became Chiudinelli’s final match. Speaking of Federer, the top seed will begin his campaign for an eighth Basel title on Tuesday evening when he plays American Frances Tiafoe, who is battling to stay alive in the Emirates ATP Race To Milan. Upsets Abound In Basel Doubles There were two major doubles upsets in Switzerland Monday, with qualifiers Marcus Daniell and Dominic Inglot eliminating top seeds Henri Kontinen and John Peers, 7-6(5), 6-3. Nicholas Monroe and Jack Sock ousted second seeds Raven Klaasen and Rajeev Ram, 3-6, 6-3, 10-7, which for the moment pushed the South African-American duo out of the cut for the Nitto ATP Finals. Klaasen and Ram were in the eighth spot in the Emirates ATP Race To London, but their loss combined with second seeds Ivan Dodig and Marcel Granollers beating Ryan Harrison and Steve Johnson, 7-6(5), 6-2, sends the Croatian-Spanish pair from ninth into seventh, nudging Klaasen and Ram back a spot to ninth.

Shapovalov Heading To Next Gen ATP Finals In Milan

One of North America's most promising tennis players will bring his fiery brand of tennis to the Next Gen ATP Finals next month. Canadian Denis Shapovalov on Monday became the fourth player to qualify for the inaugural event, to be held 7-11 November at the Fiera Milano (Rho), Italy. Shapovalov joined Alexander Zverev of Germany and Russians Andrey Rublev and Karen Khachanov as qualifiers. The left-handed Canadian clinched his berth by beating Japan's Yuichi Sugita 4-6, 6-2, 7-6(3) in the first round of the Swiss Indoors Basel. Buy Tickets Now The 18-year-old Shapovalov is the youngest player so far to guarantee his spot at the 21-and-under tournament, which will also feature a number of rule changes and innovations. Shapovalov captured the tennis world's attention in August when he sprinted through the Coupe Rogers draw in his home country. The 6-foot left-hander started the week of 7 August at No. 143 in the Emirates ATP Rankings. He received a wild card into the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event, and showed exactly how to take advantage of such an opportunity. After surviving a first-round battle against veteran Rogerio Dutra Silva of Brazil, Shapovalov knocked out Grand Slam champion Juan Martin del Potro in straight sets. Read More: Surging Shapovalov Has Sights Set On Milan In the Round of 16, Shapovalov delivered the performance of his career, upsetting then-World No. 2 Rafael Nadal to become the youngest Masters 1000 quarter-finalist. He followed the stunning performance by beating Frenchman Adrian Mannarino to make the Montreal semi-finals. His dream run ended there with a tight two-set loss to fellow #NextGenATP Zverev. Shapovalov proved he was no one-tournament wonder in the weeks ahead. Playing at his first US Open, he won three matches to qualify and proceeded to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time, beating then-World No. 12 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga along the way. Only three qualification spots remain for the eight-player Next Gen ATP Finals. The top seven in the Emirates ATP Race To Milan, which ends on 30 October, will qualify. The eighth spot is reserved for the winner of an Italian 21-and-under tournament to finish on 5 November.

Zverev Advances In Vienna Opener

Alexander Zverev has come a long way since losing in the final round of qualifying in his last appearance at the Erste Bank Open 500 in 2014. A five-time champion this season, Zverev began his pursuit of a sixth title this year in Vienna on Monday with a 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 victory against Viktor Troicki. The German, who is No. 3 in the Emirates ATP Race To London, is attempting to find his best form to close out his season on a high note. Zverev took one hour, 47 minutes to get by the Serbian, extending his FedEx ATP Head2Head record over the veteran to 3-1. The 6’6” right-hander will next play the tricky Frenchman Gilles Simon, who defeated Ernests Gulbis, 6-3, 6-3. The 20-year-old holds a 3-0 FedEx ATP Head2Head advantage over Simon, with two of the three meetings going to a final-set tie-break. Philipp Kohlschreiber earned his 30th tour-level victory of the season when he defeated fifth seed John Isner, 7-6(6), 6-4. The German overcame a break deficit in both the first and second sets, saving three set points in the opening tie-break. “I played my best tennis with my back to the wall,” Kohlschreiber said. “Though it is rare that a player like him would give a match away once he is two breaks up.” It is the 11th straight season that the German has reached the 30-win mark. The only players who own longer streaks of 30 wins per year are Rafael Nadal (14 years), Tomas Berdych (13 years) and Novak Djokovic (12 years). The German evened his FedEx ATP Head2Head rivalry with the American at 4-4, winning for the fourth time in their past five meetings. Kohlschreiber will next face qualifier Pierre-Hugues Herbert, who sent Bernard Tomic’s record on the season to 10-19 with a 7-6(4), 7-5 win. The Frenchman, who earned his berth in the Nitto ATP Finals in doubles with Nicolas Mahut, snapped a six-match losing streak in tour-level main draws. And while he trails Kohlschreiber in their FedEx ATP Head2Head rivalry, 2-1, he triumphed in their last meeting at The Championships last year. Richard Gasquet got his tournament off to a strong start with a 6-2, 6-3 win over fellow veteran Feliciano Lopez. That sets up a second-round clash against the winner of a blockbuster opener between second seed Dominic Thiem and Andrey Rublev, who has qualified for the inaugural Next Gen ATP Finals. That first-round match will begin Tuesday's evening session.

A Race To The Finish In Vienna & Paris

10 THINGS TO WATCH IN BASEL 1. 500 Finales: The last of 13 ATP World Tour 500 events for the season take place this week in Basel and Vienna, where pivotal points are the prize in the Emirates ATP Races to London and Milan. The Nitto ATP Finals qualification cut-off is November 6 and the Next Gen ATP Finals cut-off is October 30. 2. Race for No. 1: Seven-time Swiss Indoors Basel champion Roger Federer enters his hometown tournament 1,960 points behind World No. 1 Rafael Nadal, who is missing the event with a knee injury. Federer, who could still earn as many as 3,000 points by year’s end, remains in contention to finish as World No. 1 for the sixth season. Nadal is seeking his fourth year-end No. 1 ranking. 3. Basel’s Boy: Federer has reached the Basel final in 10 straight appearances (2006-15) and played in more finals at Basel than any other tournament (7-5). The Swiss started his five-match win streak against Nadal by beating the Spaniard in the 2015 Basel final. Federer, 36, is making his 17th main draw appearance at his hometown event and earned his first ATP qualifying win here 20 years ago. 4. Cilic the Champ: In Federer’s absence last year, Marin Cilic emerged as the new Swiss Indoors Basel champion. The Croat returns this week as the No. 2 seed behind Federer and the No. 6 player in the Emirates ATP Race to London. Cilic is trying to qualify for his third Nitto ATP Finals. 5. Spoiler Alert: Champions from 10 of the past 11 years are back in Basel this week, including No. 4 seed Juan Martin del Potro, who defeated Federer in the 2012 and 2013 finals. The Stockholm champion is within 470 points of Pablo Carreno Busta for the final spot at the Nitto ATP Finals. 6. Back in the Mix: No. 3 seed David Goffin is on pace to qualify for the Nitto ATP Finals despite missing six weeks this season with an ankle injury. Goffin rose from No. 13 to No. 8 in the Emirates ATP Race to London on October 9 after winning back-to-back titles at Shenzhen and Tokyo. 7. ATP’s Iron Man: No player in the Top 100 of the Emirates ATP Rankings has played more tournaments in 2017 than Paolo Lorenzi. Basel marks Lorenzi’s 33rd tournament of the season. Lorenzi, who celebrates his 36th birthday on December 15, is the fifth-oldest player in the Top 100. 8. All Eyes on Milan: Basel players Denis Shapovalov, Jared Donaldson and Borna Coric are on pace to qualify for the Next Gen ATP Finals. Hyeon Chung is also in the Basel field, but 12 points behind Daniil Medvedev for the final spot. Medvedev is playing at a Challenger event this week. 9. Wild Cards: Swiss players Marco Chiudinelli and Henri Laaksonen received wild cards along with #NextGenATP American Frances Tiafoe. The 19-year- old Tiafoe, who faces Federer in the first round, needs to reach the semi-finals for any chance of competing at the Next Gen ATP Finals. 10. Double the Pressure: No. 2 seeds Ivan Dodig and Marcel Granollers, No. 3 seeds Raven Klaasen and Rajeev Ram, and No. 4 seeds Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah are battling in Basel. 10 THINGS TO WATCH IN VIENNA 1. 500 Finales: The other ATP World Tour 500 event takes place this week in Vienna, with points on offer having a crucial bearing in the Emirates ATP Races to London and Milan. The Nitto ATP Finals qualification cut-off is November 6 and the Next Gen ATP Finals cut-off is October 30. 2. Two Races Won: Erste Bank Open 500 No. 1 seed Alexander Zverev has qualified for both the Nitto ATP Finals and Next Gen ATP Finals. The 20-year-old German counts ATP World Tour Masters 1000s at Rome and Montreal among his five titles in 2017. Zverev is the youngest player to win an ATP Masters 1000, break into the Top 5 in the Emirates ATP Rankings and earn five titles in a season since Novak Djokovic in 2007. 3. Thiem’s Travails: No. 2 seed Dominic Thiem is up to a career-high No. 6 in the Emirates ATP Rankings. But the Austrian is just 5-6 on home soil at the Erste Bank Open 500. His struggles in Vienna may have less to do with location and more to do with timing. Thiem is 11-19 throughout his career during the months of October and November, never reaching a semi-final after September. 4. London Calling: While Thiem and Zverev have already booked their tickets to London, No. 3 seed Grigor Dimitrov is next in line for Nitto ATP Finals qualification. Dimitrov accepted a wild card and will make his Vienna debut this week. He started the season 16-1 and is 14-4 since August 14. 5. Down to the Wire: No. 4 seed Pablo Carreno Busta would be the eighth Nitto ATP Finals qualifier if the season ended today. But the Spaniard is in the midst of a four-match losing streak. Carreno Busta leads No. 6 seed Sam Querrey by 80 points and No. 7 seed Kevin Anderson by 135 points. 6. American Pride: Querrey is attempting to qualify for his first Nitto ATP Finals and finish a season as the No. 1 American for the first time. The 6-foot-6 Californian is 620 race points ahead of No. 5 seed John Isner, who has ended each of the past five seasons as the top player from the United States. 7. Comeback Kev: Since the start of 2016, Anderson has endured injuries to his ankle, elbow, groin, hip, knee and shoulder. He fell to No. 80 on January 16, 2017 and was No. 32 when he became the lowest-ranked US Open finalist in history. Anderson returned to the Top 15 on September 11. 8. Hit or Miss: No. 8 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has won more than 30 matches in 10 straight seasons. But 2017 has been an up-and-down year for the Frenchman. On one hand, he has captured a career-high four titles. On the other, he has lost his opening match at five tournaments. 9. Milan Bound: All three men who have already qualified for the Next Gen ATP Finals are competing in Vienna this week: Zverev, Andrey Rublev and Karen Khachanov. Wild card Sebastian Ofner, a 21-year- old Austrian, must win the Erste Bank Open 500 championship for a chance at qualifying. 10. Double the Pressure: Unseeded teams Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic, Feliciano Lopez and Marc Lopez, and Rohan Bopanna and Pablo Cuevas are battling with three teams competing in Basel for the last-remaining Nitto ATP Finals spot in the Emirates ATP Doubles Race to London.

The 32-year-old Tsonga had already landed titles in Lyon, Marseille and Rotterdam earlier this year. Tsonga now has 2,055 points in the Race, 550 points behind Carreno Busta. He will attempt to make up ground in Vienna this week. No. 29 Damir Dzumhur, +10 Damir Dzumhur’s love affair with Russia continued when the Bosnian and Herzegovinian clinched his second ATP World Tour title there on Sunday.

#NextGenATP Kozlov Claims Second Challenger Crown In Las Vegas

A LOOK BACK Las Vegas Tennis Open (Las Vegas, Nevada, USA): #NextGenATP star Stefan Kozlov returned to the winners' circle on Sunday, storming back from a set down to claim his second ATP Challenger Tour title. The American teen overcame Liam Broady 3-6, 7-5, 6-4 in two hours and 19 minutes for his first crown since lifting his maiden trophy in Columbus nearly one year ago. Kozlov failed to convert on two match points at 5-3 in the decider, but held his nerve and closed out the win on his third at 5-4. The 19-year-old's win is the 13th for teenagers this year and 10th among Americans. "We both just put it on the line today and it was 50-50," Kozlov said. "We were both left gasping for air and it wasn’t easy. It could have gone either way today. I was very impressed with Liam’s sportsmanship today. I haven’t had the best last couple of months, a lot of ups and downs. For all the downs, you have to kind of look for the ups and today I had to dig deep for mine." Yinzhou International Men's Tennis Challenger (Ningbo, China): Former World No. 8 Mikhail Youzhny is on the precipice of a Top 100 return after streaking to the title in Ningbo on Sunday. Youzhny did not drop a set all week, capped by a 6-1, 6-1 rout of Taro Daniel in the final. The Russian will rise to No. 101 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, improving to 6-1 in finals on the ATP Challenger Tour. The week in Ningbo also featured one of the biggest comebacks and upsets of the year, as Austrian teen Jurij Rodionov stunned second seed Jordan Thompson from 3-6, 1-5 down to reach his first Challenger semi-final. Another teenager making noise at the $125,000 event was Japan's Yosuke Watanuki. The 19 year old reached the quarter-finals and will rise 62 spots to a career-high No. 368 in the Emirates ATP Rankings. [ALSO LIKE] Wolffkran Open (Ismaning, Germany): The inaugural tournament in Ismaning was a great success, with the top German players showcasing their talents on home soil. Six of the eight seeds were from the European nation and one of them - No. 3 Yannick Hanfmann - would take the title on Sunday. Hanfmann clinched his maiden ATP Challenger Tour crown 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 over Lorenzo Sonego. Runner-up at the ATP World Tour event in Gstaad earlier this year, he will rise to a career-high No. 113 in the Emirates ATP Rankings.

"Especially after being down a break in the third set and looking like the loser. It gave me a huge boost that the crowd kept cheering me on. The tournament was greatly organised and I hope they will continue for many more years. It presents a great opportunity for our young guys from the region to fight for [Emirates ATP Rankings] points." Milo Open (Cali, Colombia): World No. 69 Federico Delbonis lifted his ninth ATP Challenger Tour trophy and second of the year, defeating Guilherme Clezar 7-6(10), 7-5 in Cali on Saturday. The Argentine had also claimed victory on the clay of Todi, Italy, in June. It marks the second straight week in which a player from Argentina has won a Challenger title, following Nicolas Kicker's triumph in Buenos Aires. A LOOK AHEAD There are five tournaments on four continents. In Asia, Blaz Kavcic leads the field in Suzhou, China, while Taylor Fritz is the top seed at the third annual Vietnam Open in Ho Chi Minh City. In Brest, France, third seed Norbert Gombos will seek to successfully defend his title. The €106,000 event also features #NextGenATP stars Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas. Tsitsipas is coming off his first ATP World Tour semi-final last week in Antwerp. Also, in Traralgon, Australia, top seed Jordan Thompson will look to retain the title. Christian Garin seeks to do the same in Lima, Peru.

Federer Begins Quest For 8th Basel Title

Believe it or not, a player with a record 19 Grand Slam crowns, 94 titles overall and 302 weeks at No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings still feels the pressure. The Swiss Indoors Basel has always been a special tournament for Roger Federer, who has not only won the event seven times, but has made the final in each of his past 10 appearances. Although the Basel native missed his hometown tournament last year after shutting down his 2016 season early due to nagging injuries, he makes a long-awaited homecoming this week – but not without the weight of expectation. “I hope I can stick around for a little bit. I do feel a lot of pressure, I must admit,” said Federer. “On Tuesday I play against a good first-round opponent in Frances Tiafoe, who is going to have a great career – I hope he’s not going to start his full-blown career right here in Basel, my hometown, I hope he leaves me this one and maybe he can have the next one!” Tiafoe, who took Federer to five sets in a thrilling first-round match at the US Open this summer, is just one of many landmines in a tricky draw for the Swiss legend. Other seeds at the Swiss Indoors Basel include defending champion Marin Cilic, 2014 finalist David Goffin and two-time champion Juan Martin del Potro, who defeated Federer in both 2012 and 2013 to claim his crowns. But Federer, like many players, lives by the well-known platitude of focusing on one match at a time, and given the loaded draw in Basel this year, he acknowledges that it is more important than ever to abide by it.  “I’m really hoping to win that first one and then sort of get into the tournament. I have a really tough draw as well if you just look one round ahead with Benoit Paire or Steve Johnson – I usually don’t do that but it’s a tough little section for an ATP 500. It’s a tough start so I don’t know what to expect, personally. “Thankfully [feeling the pressure] has not been a big issue for me here in Basel because I’ve been in the finals the last 10 times that I have played here, but there’s no guarantee I will do it again this year,” he added. “So that’s why I arrived early, I’ve practised a lot here on the centre court already, I’m starting to feel the ball better and my body is ready to go, so I’m hoping to play a good tournament.” With the Nitto ATP Finals in London just around the corner following the European indoor swing, Federer admits that already qualifying for his 14th appearance at the prestigious season-ending event relieves some of the pressure of playing in Basel this week. “My first qualification was back in 2002, so a long, long time ago,” said Federer, who will not only be looking to lift the trophy there for the seventh time, but will also be chasing rival Rafael Nadal for the year-end No. 1 ranking. “I’ve always played very well there and I have a great record: I won it twice in London, twice in Shanghai and twice in Houston, so I’d love to win again. It’s nice to know that you’re already qualified; it settles the nerves a little bit here at the indoor season at the end of the season.  “It would be an amazing finish to the season, but I know other players have the same idea, so we’ll see what happens.”

Mirnyi Wins 50th Title In Moscow

Sunday was not Max Mirnyi’s first trip to titletown — not even close. But it will certainly be a moment that the 40 year old won’t soon forget. Mirnyi won his 50th ATP World Tour doubles title, joining Philipp Oswald to defeat singles champion Damir Dzumhur and Antonio Sancic, 6-3, 7-5, in the final of the VTB Kremlin Cup. “You never can say the victory was easy just looking at the score,” Mirnyi said. “There is always a special pressure when you are playing at home. And I think the VTB Kremlin Cup is a home tournament for me as unfortunately we haven't got an ATP tournament in Minsk...many of my relatives and friends came to watch my matches and that is the one more reason to show your best. And when you managed to do this, it is a great pleasure.” It was the Belarusian’s fifth VTB Kremlin Cup title with his fifth different partner. In his career, Mirnyi has partnered 19 different players to at least one title, starting with Kevin Ullyett in Shanghai 20 years ago. Sunday’s victory was his first since capturing last year’s Abierto Mexicano Telcel with Treat Huey. Mirnyi/Oswald did not drop a set en route to the title, with this event their fourth main draw appearance together. Oswald leaves Moscow with his third title this season after winning the Ecuador Open (w/Cerretani) and the J. Safra Sarasin Swiss Open (w/Marach). “It means a lot because when you look at the list of winners with Max, he’s won this tournament five times with Federer and all those top stars and now it also says 50th title with Oswald,” Oswald said. “Partnering with Max is like being in an elite club of top players.” Mirnyi has won three of his 50 titles with Roger Federer, with two in 2002 (Rotterdam, Moscow) and another in 2003 (Miami). Dzumhur came close to becoming the first player to win both the singles and doubles title in Moscow in the same year since Nikolay Davydenko in 2004. It was Sancic’s second doubles final. He lost in the final of the Plava Laguna Croatia Open Umag with Nikola Mektic. Mirnyi and Oswald earned 250 Emirates ATP Rankings points each and will split $40,400 in prize money, while Dzumhur and Sancic take 150 points and will share $21,240.
