Some might be interested in the 3 tournaments going on at present:

Royal Guard Open, Chile
ATP 250  3-9 February 2014

Field includes Fognini, Almagro, Robredo, Zeballos, Chardy, Granollers, Dolgopolov.

Singles draw:

Zaballos holds the title.  I see that the erratic Dolgopolov is out already, losing to Gimeno -Traver in 3 sets.

Robredo is paying L.Mayer & they’re a set a piece & going with serve in the 3rd.   Robredo had a good year last year & I hope enjoy’s this season too.

Doubles draw:


Open Sud De France
ATP 250   3-9 February 2014

Singles Draw:

Field includes Gasquet, Simon, Janowicz, Monfils, Benneteau, Nieminen, Mahut,Tursunov.

Davydenko is playing Benneteau at the moment & up a set.

Doubles draw:


PBZ Zagreb Indoors
ATP 250  3-9 February 2014

Singles draw:

The field includes Haas, Youzhny,Kohlshreiber, Cilic, Dodig, Stepanek, Karlovic, Sijsling

Kavcic & sijsling are playing now & Kavcic is up a set, but Sijsling has broken to go up 4-2 in the second.

Doubles draw:

Looks like a good time for the troops to return to the home soil, relax and begin prepping for RG.

Umpire makes wrong decision, this point should not go to Jerzy.

A couple of interesting semi's coming up in the Open Sud de France, with Gasquet -v- Janowicz  & Monfils -v- Nieminen .   I watched some of the Monfils -v- Istomin QF match & GM played some excellent tennis.

In the PBZ Zagreb Indoors, Haas , Cilic, Phau & Evans are through to the SF's.   
It will be Cilic -v- Phau  & Haas -v- Evans.

At the Royal Guard Open,  the Fognini -v- Chardy  QF match is in progress with FF just winning  the 1st set 6-4.   I'm watching this match for a bit & FF looks comfortable out there.    Girado & L.Mayer are through to the SF. 

Chardy doing well to focus & play more aggressively, winning the 2nd set 6-3.
FF can hit a beautiful forehand. However, Chardy gets an early break.  FF looking a little subdued.

Loool! FF breaks back to love!   

In the Sud de France Open, I’m pleased to see Gasquet through to the final, beating Janowicz in 2 closely contested sets.  I like JJ too, but RG is an old favourite.
Nieminen took a set off Monfils, but the latter seems to have dominated in the 3rd set, and an all French final looms large.  I hope RG can take the title.
And in the doubles here I hope Mahut / Giqcuel will take the title. 

In the PBZ Zagreb Indoors, pleased to see both Haas & Cilic through.  Their final should be worth watching.  Daniel Brands has had a good tournament, and gave Haas a good contest,  taking a set off him in their SF match. I hope he’ll take heart from his good performance here & continue to do well this year.
I hope Rojer / Tecau will lift the doubles title.

In  the Royal Guard Open, the SF’s will be between  Giraldo / L. Mayer  & Fognini / Almagro.   The latter one should be interesting.   
I’ve no favourites for the doubles here.
