Tipsarevic meets Bellucci in Gstaad 2012 Final

Tipsarevic meets Bellucci in Gstaad 2012 Final

Janko Tipsarevic beat Paul-Henri Mathieu 7-6, 6-3 in the semi-finals of the Crédit Agricole Suisse Open Gstaad.

During the two hours match, Tipsarevic broke twice and fired eight aces.

"The first set could have gone either way," admitted Tipsarevic. "I think he went for too much in some occasions in the second set and I was just more solid than him. I needed some time to adjust to the conditions here. I somehow survived the early rounds and here I am in the final."

The will next play Thomaz Bellucci, who defeated Grigor Dimitrov 7-6, 7-6.

With the players swapping service breaks twice, it was Bellucci who had the edge in the two decisive tie-breaks to clinch victory in one hour and 55 minutes.

Marcel Granollers Wins Gstaad 2011 title after beating Verdasco

Marcel Granollers Wins Gstaad 2011 title after beating Verdasco

Marcel Granollers defeated Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 to win the Crédit Agricole Suisse Open Gstaad 2011 title.

"Last week was bad for me because I felt a lot of pain in my arm, which I had felt since Wimbledon," revealed Granollers. "I went home and rested for five days without any practice, and I came here on Sunday and started to feel better and better. Now I have won the tournament and so it’s amazing.

"It’s very important for me because I won my first tournament in 2008, which was a little unexpected, and three years later I won here. So there is a lot of work behind today and I feel amazing."

Granollers dominate the first set, and converting one of his five break point chances to take the early lead.

Verdasco got back into the game after breaking his opponent at the start of the second set and kept the differene to to level the match.

Granollers broke in the sixth game of the decider and took the win and the title after two hours and 24 minutes of play.

"It was a very tough match because he’s an incredible player," said Granollers. "He’s won a lot of tournaments and it was very tough for me today. All week I served very well, especially today. I was very solid from the baseline and today I played the first set very aggressively."

Reflecting on the match, Verdasco said, "It was close, and when a match is like that, one or two points decide it. He played better than me on the important points and he served very good. He really deserved this victory, after having the pain in his arm the past few weeks and he didn’t even know if he would be able to play here. He played unbelievable all week, beat many good players, and today it was really tough just to return his serve.

"Of course it’s better to lose in the final than before the final," added the Madrid native. "But you always want to win, so it’s not easy to lose the final. I think I played well the whole week; it’s tough to play here with altitude. I just need to try not to let the negative part of losing the final get me down, and try to take the positive part and get the confidence and motivation for the upcoming tournaments.”

Verdasco vs Granollers in Gstaad final

Fernando Verdasco defeated Nicolas Almagro 6-7 (2), 7-6 (2), 6-3 to set up a meeting with Marcel Granollers, who beat Mikhail Youzhny 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, at the Gstaad Allianz Suisse Open final.

Verdasco broke to start the third set and broke Almagro a third time to complete the victory.

Fernandohit 13 aces and saved four of the five break points he faced.

"We had very few chances to break each other in the first two sets because I think we were both playing well on serve," reflected Verdasco. "In the first set tie-break he played better, in the second set tie-break I played better. I started the third set with more confidence and he started missing more; that helped me to take the advantage. It was a very difficult match, very mental, and I just tried to play point-by-point."

Looking ahead to the final, Verdasco said, "I want to do well, but I will not change my game because of him. Here with the altitude, the matches are always very close. If you serve well, it’s all about the returns and getting the ball back in. It’s going to be a very difficult match, he’s playing very good."

Granollers converted six of 15 break point opportunities. He trailed 2-0 in the deciding set then reeled off six straight games to reach his first final of the season.

“I started the match very well,” recalled Granollers. “But I lost my serve in the first game of the second set and then the match changed a little bit because Youzhny started to play better and better. In the final set I was 2-0 down, but I broke him and then the match changed again and I finished it very well.”
