Bastad Honoured For Eight Straight Years
The SkiStar Swedish Open in Bastad has been voted by players as the ATP World Tour 250 Tournament of the Year for 10 consecutive years from 2002-11. The clay court event, which has been held every summer since 1948, has consistently improved its venue and tournament.

The Spaniard also finished runner-up in 2011 (l. to Soderling) and has a 14-5 event record. He enters in strong form after winning the ‘s-Hertogenbosch title and reaching the Wimbledon quarter-finals.

Almagro In The Mix - World No. 11 Nicolas Almagro will contest the SkiStar Swedish Open for the seventh time. He won the title in 2010 (d. Soderling) and reached the final in 2007 (l. to Ferrer). He has a 14-5 record.

Robredo Eyes Title Hat-Trick - Spaniard Tommy Robredo, the 2006 and '08 champion, makes his 12th straight appearance in Bastad, where he has a 26-9 match record.

Ramos Seeks First Title - Having reached his first ATP World Tour final in Casablanca (l. to Andujar), Spain's Albert Ramos looks to go a step further in Bastad.

Can Almagro break the Ferrer jinx? I still can't believe he has never been able to defeat him.

LINDSTEDT/TECAU WIN THIRD STRAIGHT BASTAD TITLE



Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau won their third straight SkiStar Swedish Open doubles title on Sunday.

The top seeds defeated Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares 6-3, 7-6(5) to improve to a 9-9 record in tour-level finals. Lindstedt served for the match at 5-4, but was broken to 15, before contesting a tense tie-break for victory in 87 minutes.

Lindstedt and Tecau share €19,660 in prize money and earn 250 ATP Doubles Team Rankings points, while Peya and Soares split €10,330 and 150 points.

The 35-year-old Lindstedt is now 15-16 in title matches, while 27-year-old Tecau improves to 12-11 overall in finals.

The Swedish-Romanian team has a 35-14 match record with their third title of the year (3-3 in finals), including the BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy at Bucharest and the UNICEF Open at 's-Hertogenbosch.

The Bastad title went some way in making up for the disappointment of losing their third successive Wimbledon final (l. to Marray-Nielsen) last weekend.
