Stebe wins ATP Challenger Tour Finals

Stebe wins ATP Challenger Tour Finals

Cedrik-Marcel Stebe won the inaugural ATP Challenger Tour Finals as he defeated Dudi Sela 6-2, 6-4 in the final in Sao Paulo.

After losing his opening match in straight sets against Sela, Stebe benefitted from the round-robin format to recover and avenged that defeat in Sunday’s final as he broke Sela four times from eight opportunities for victory in 86 minutes.

"I can't believe it yet," admitted Stebe. "It was a great tournament, so many nice people. [Sela] is a really good player, he played already in the Top 30, and it's an amazing feeling to beat a player like this.

"I started a little weak (this week) but I kept trying to do my best and get back to my game and it worked out in the end. I was more aggressive and that's how it should be."

ATP Challenger Tour Finals: Sela To Face Stebe In Final

ATP Challenger Tour Finals: Sela To Face Stebe In Final

Dudi Sela upset Thomaz Bellucci 6-4, 6-4 to advanced to the final of the ATP Challenger Tour Finals.

Sela saved five of the six break points he faced and broke Bellucci’s serve three times for victory in one hour and 35 minutes.

"To be honest, I don't think it was a good match today," admitted Sela. "Bellucci was clearly tired because of his tough match yesterday (against Martin Klizan) and he made a lot of mistakes. When your opponent is in that situation it's necessary to be calm and get the ball in and I did that well. I'll try to play better on Sunday."

"It was a good match again, like my first game [against Stebe]," commented Sela. "Yesterday I was really tired in the court and that didn't help, but I made my part and I’m happy to be in the semi-finals; hopefully I can make it to Sunday. The tournament has a really good level."

Beck Upsets Bellucci in ATP Challenger finals

Beck Upsets Bellucci in ATP Challenger finals

Andreas Beck beat Thomaz Bellucci 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 in the Green Groupon at the ATP Challenger Tour Finals in Sao Paulo.

The German broke his opponent’s serve six times to win in one hour and 56 minutes.

"I felt very good on the court today," said Beck. "Thomaz also played well, but in the important moments I could step up. The crowd was good to me even though they were supporting him. Tomorrow I have to stay focused because nothing is defined yet."

"It was a tough match," admitted Bellucci. "He served really well and I couldn't get to read his serve and that was frustrating. When I managed to get more balls in the court he made some mistakes, but in the third set I couldn't reach him. Tomorrow, Klizan plays similar to Beck, but if I play good tennis I'll have the chance to win."

Bellucci and Sela winners in Sao Paulo

Thomaz Bellucci beat Bobby Reynolds 6-3, 6-3in his opening ATP Challenger Tour Finals in Sao Paulo.

Bellucci converted four of his six break point chances and won 84 per cent of points behind his first serve to claim victory in 70 minutes.

"I was always in the lead so it was easier to control the match. I made a few mistakes, but it's normal for a first match so I'm happy to win," said Bellucci, who plays Andreas Beck on Thursday. "Against Beck it will be a tough match because he is an aggressive player, so I will have to play inside the court and not let him play."

Bellucci feeling home pressure in Sao Paulo

Bellucci feeling home pressure in Sao Paulo

Thomaz Bellucci leads the Green Group at the 2011 ATP Challenger Tour Finals and will face Andreas Beck, Martin Klizan and Bobby Reynolds.

Rui Machado is the top player in the Yellow Group, with rivals Dudi Sela, Cedrik-Marcel Stebe and Matthias Bachinger.

"It's a different tournament compared to the others and that's why even though I have a better ranking, I don't think I'm favourite to win the title", Bellucci said. "All these players come from strong competitions and most of them are hard-court players.
