Lindstedt/Tecau Win Second Den Bosch Crown



Top seeds Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau captured their second UNICEF Open title on Saturday, beating Juan Sebastian Cabal and Dmitry Tursunov 6-3, 7-6(1) in 's-Hertogenbosch.

The Swedish/Romanian pair fired 10 aces, winning 82 per cent of their service points. They wrapped up the final victory in 73 minutes to clinch the title without dropping a set, improving their event record to an 11-1 mark.

“The tournament has been very generous to us. We pick up our game here and play really well,” Lindstedt said. “To win today against two strong players is a great confidence booster for Wimbledon.”

Lindstedt and Tecau are 2-2 in title matches this season, having triumphed in Bucharest and finishing runner-up in Madrid and Rotterdam. The last two seasons, Lindstedt and Tecau went on to reach the Wimbledon final following their strong showings in 's-Hertogenbosch.

Reflecting on their goal for Wimbledon, Lindstedt stated, “If we said anything less than winning it, we'd be stupid. We have a very tough first match, so the focus lies on that. If you look too far ahead in the draw, you'll stumble on your own shoelaces. We're focusing on that first match and then hopefully we can get the ball rolling.”

Cabal and Tursunov were appearing in their first final together. Tursunov dropped to a 5-5 final record while Cabal fell to 0-2.

Ferrer Victorious In 's-Hertogenbosch


David Ferrer won his second title in 's-Hertogenbosch on Saturday.


World No. 6 David Ferrer lifted his fourth trophy of the season Saturday in 's-Hertogenbosch, defeating qualifier Philipp Petzschner 6-3, 6-4 at the UNICEF Open.

“I'm very, very happy. I've won two times here,” said Ferrer. “This is special for me because grass is maybe my worst surface. On a clay court or hard court, my game is more adapted.”

Ferrer won 78 per cent of his first serve points and broke the German three times to seal the final victory in 69 minutes, winning the pair’s first FedEx ATP Head 2 Head meeting.

“Today was a tough match. The key was with my serve,” assessed Ferrer. “I served very good all the match. I played my best match of this week. I was more consistent than in my last matches.”

The Spaniard evened his ATP World Tour final record to a 15-15 mark, celebrating his second grass-court title in 's-Hertogenbosch after winning in 2008. He leads all players with 43 tour-level victories this season and added to triumphs in Auckland (d. Rochus), Buenos Aires (d. Almagro) and Acapulco (d. Verdasco).

Petzschner was appearing in his third ATP World Tour final, aiming to end a title drought dating back to his first success in Vienna four years ago. The 145th-ranked Petzschner entered the tournament on a seven-match losing streak with a 3-10 record in 2012. He will jump to around No. 100 with his run this week when the South African Airways ATP Rankings are updated.

“I think he played a great match. He deserved to win the tournament and he was the best player here,” Petzschner said. “I made too many mistakes today. If I want to beat him, I have to play at my highest level. But I'm happy with the week. I played really good tennis.”

The 28 year old announced he would donate a portion of his prize money to UNICEF during the trophy presentation.

Petrova Too Powerful, Wins In Den Bosch



One of the best all-court games on the WTA has been finding its range again, and in 's-Hertogenbosch this past week it all clicked. Former World No.3 Nadia Petrova didn't lose a set en route to her 11th WTA title - and her first WTA title on grass - at the UNICEF Open.

Petrova, the No.8 seed at the International-level event, wasn't even pushed to a tie-break in any of her five matches on the lawns of 's-Hertogenbosch, and capped it with a 64 63 win over Urszula Radwanska, dropping serve in the first game of both sets but recovering quickly each time to win in straights.

"I must say I'm happy to win today in straight sets," Petrova said of the final. "The beginning of the match was a little bit rusty - I lost my serve, even though I was 40-0 up. That put me in a little bit of an uncomfortable situation. But I really controlled my emotions well and broke back to get into the match."

"Nadia was playing amazing today," Radwanska said. "She served so well and I really couldn't do much - she didn't let me play my game. But I was excited to be in my first WTA final and I hope my next final will be coming soon!"

Petrova's first 10 WTA titles were split among hard and clay events - seven on hard, three on clay. She now has an overall 11-11 record in WTA finals.

The 30-year-old Russian also bounces back into the Top 20 now, going from No.22 to No.20 - her first time in the elite since the two weeks of Indian Wells in March 2011, and having gone as low as No.37 in the time since.

"I enjoyed this week very much - I hadn't been here for eight years and it was great, they do everything for the players," Petrova added. "I haven't seen my draw for Wimbledon yet but I hope I have a decent one. I hope to continue playing the same tennis, but I don't want to put any expectations on myself."

Radwanska came out of the qualifying and made it all the way to her first WTA final - she now goes from No.64 to No.54 on the new WTA Rankings.

Petrova came back on court later for the doubles final, though she couldn't pull off the double. She and Maria Kirilenko, the No.2 seeds this week, were just edged by No.1 seeds Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci, 64 36 119, the Italians' seventh WTA doubles title of the year together and their 23rd match win in a row - the longest doubles winning streak since Laura Montalvo and Paola Suárez won the same amount in a row across the 1999 and 2000 seasons.

"We are very happy to win here, especially on grass," Vinci said. "We are feeling good and confident and are looking forward to Wimbledon next week."

"Nadia and Maria are difficult opponents - we've played them a lot this year," Errani said. "It was a very close match and we're very happy to win."
