Michael Llodra Downs Jarkko Neiminen in Adelaide Final


Michael Llodra Downs Jarkko Neiminen in Adelaide Final
This article is from atptennis.com

Unseeded Frenchman Michael Llodra (pictured) claimed his second career ATP singles title with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over third-seeded Finn Jarkko Nieminen at the Next Generation Adelaide International on Sunday.

The big-serving Llodra broke early in each set, serving six aces and winning 79% of the points on his own serve in sealing victory in one hour and 17 minutes. Llodra also enjoyed success in Nieminen’s service games, holding 14 break points against the Finn – although only converting twice.

The 27-year-old celebrated his victory by jumping into the River Torrens, the river that flows through the city of Adelaide and passes right by the Memorial Drive Stadium.



The victory earns Llodra his first hard court title. His maiden ATP singles title came at ‘s-Hertogenbosch on grass four years ago (d. Coria). The Frenchman reached his maiden tour final in Adelaide in 2004, but lost out to Dominik Hrbaty on that occasion. He now improves to 2-2 lifetime in ATP singles finals.

“I had a good feeling today especially from the baseline and I was very solid until the end and I'm very happy to win of course, but also to play like that,” said Llodra. “I knew before the match he's going to be tough because he's a good returner but I know also when I serve good its tough for the guy to return.

“This win will give me a lot of confidence for sure. When I came here I was the last one into the tournament but I made good preparation in December and I knew I could play good. I played in my first ATP final at this tournament and now I win the last tournament in Adelaide so it is good history for me.”

World No. 96 Llodra, who was the last direct acceptance into the main draw, raced to the title victory without the loss of a single set. He took out compatriot and No. 4 seed Gilles Simon in the first round, before following up with victories over Evgeny Korolev, Benjamin Becker, and Joseph Sirianni. He now improves to a tournament standing of 10-3 in Adelaide.

2007 was highlighted for Llodra with his third Grand Slam doubles crown, which he claimed at Wimbledon with compatriot Arnaud Clement. In singles action, the World No. 96 finished the season ranked inside the Top 100 of the ATP Rankings for the third successive year.

World No. 27 Nieminen (pictured right), who had held a 1-0 head-to-head lead over Llodra, now slips to 1-7 in ATP singles finals. His lone win came in Auckland on hard court two years ago (d. Ancic). The 27-year-old, who was bidding to become the first Finn to win the title, was appearing in his first title match since falling to Roger Federer in Basel last year.

“Obviously it was a great way to start the year but unfortunately it wasn't the perfect week because Michael played well today,” conceded Nieminen. “I just didn't put enough returns in and I didn't have good chances to break him. I think the court suited him well and with this hot weather the ball is going fast in the air and it makes him very tough to break.

“Still this is a great way to start the year and my goal here was to get a lot of matches and I got the maximum amount of matches, so this is a great way to begin the season.”

Last season, Nieminen finished inside the Top 30 of the ATP Rankings for the third successive year. A former semifinalist in Adelaide, he now slips to 9-4 at the event.

Paul-Henri Mathieu Rolls; Sirianni Nails Spot in Quarterfinals


Paul-Henri Mathieu Rolls; Sirianni Nails Spot in Quarterfinals

This article is from ATP Tennis Officla website atptennis.com

Second-seeded Paul Henri-Mathieu booked his place in the Next Generation Adelaide International quarterfinals on Wednesday, after the Frenchman knocked out last year’s runner-up and Australian hope Chris Guccione 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 in 93 minutes.

The 22-year-old Guccione fired 24 aces, to add to the 23 aces he hit in his first round victory over Wayne Odesnik, but could win only 19 of 78 points on return of serve. World No. 25 Mathieu converted two of three break point opportunities


Mathieu will next meet Australian wild card Joseph Sirianni (pictured), who continued his impressive run in Adelaide by advancing to his first career ATP quarterfinal by dismissing American Sam Querrey 6-7(5), 6-2, 6-3.

Sirianni broke Querrey to go up 4-2 in the third set and faced down triple break point when serving for the match, reeling off five straight points to close out the win in one hour and 49 minutes.

Prior to his win over fifth-seeded Czech Radek Stepanek on Monday (who retired with a right heel injury while trailing by a set), Sirianni's only previous ATP-level victory came in 2003 when he posted a straight-sets win over Max Mirnyi in the first round of the Australian Open.

The 32-year-old Sirianni last played in an ATP tournament in 2006 as a qualifier at 's-Hertogenbosch, but finished 2007 at a career-high No. 195 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings by winning two titles on the ATP Challenger circuit in Caloundra and Brisbane.

German Benjamin Becker also secured his place in the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-4 win over American Michael Russell by converting on three of his seven break point opportunities. Russell upset No. 7 seed Juan Martin del Potro in the first round Monday and was trying to reach his first career ATP quarterfinal in his 63rd tournament.

Becker will be making his first appearance in a quarterfinal since last September when he advanced to his first ATP final in Bangkok. He also reached the semifinals in Delray Beach and San Jose last year.

The German will meet Michael Llodra of France, who defeated Russian Evgeny Korolev 7-6(3), 6-3 in 84 minutes. Llodra hit 14 and saved all six break points he face on serve. Four years ago he lost to Dominik Hrbaty in the Adelaide final.

Hewitt, Mathieu, Nieminen Record New Year Wins at Next Generation Adelaide International

Henry Paul Mathieu
Hewitt, Mathieu, Nieminen Record New Year Wins at Next Generation Adelaide International

Article from ATP Tennis Official Website - atptennis.com

Top seed and two-time former champion Lleyton Hewitt cruised past Dudi Sela of Israel 6-2, 6-2 in 66 minutes on a stifling day at the Next Generation Adelaide International on Tuesday. At 1.40pm, temperatures hit 39.9 °C (103.82 °F).

Hewitt, who captured his maiden ATP title in Adelaide 10 years ago as a 16-year-old in 1998 (d. Stoltenberg), improved to 21-5 at the event with victory over the World No. 64. Hewitt won 90 per cent of points on first serve and struck seven aces, while Sela won 12 points on return of serve during the first round match. Hewitt now meets Argentine Jose Acasuso, a 6-3, 7-6(3) winner over Alejandro Falla of Colombia.


Second-seeded Paul-Henri Mathieu (pictured) reversed a two-match losing streak against French compatriot Julien Benneteau. Mathieu, who had previously suffered straight-set losses to Benneteau at Stockholm in 2005 and Metz last year, gained revenge with a hard-fought 7-6(2), 7-5 victory in two hours and 22 minutes.

In 2007, Mathieu finished as the No. 2 French player (behind Richard Gasquet) at a year-end best No. 25 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings courtesy of title-winning performances in Casablanca (d. Montanes) and Gstaad (d. Seppi). Benneteau was one of 15 Frenchman who finished in the year-end Top 100.

The 25-year-old Mathieu will meet last year’s runner-up Chris Guccione in the second round, after the big-serving Australian wild card hit 23 aces past American qualifier Wayne Odesnik in a 7-5, 7-6(5) win over 87 minutes on Center Court I. The pair had previously met at an ATP Challenger circuit event in Carson California in October 2005. One year ago 22-year-old Guccione advanced to his first career ATP final in Adelaide, defeating Amer Delic, Arnaud Clement, Benjamin Becker, Gasquet and Juan Martin del Potro before losing in three sets to Novak Djokovic in the final.

Third-seeded Jarkko Nieminen earned safe passage past qualifier and World No. 224 Ivo Klec 6-2, 6-4 in 65 minutes to set up a second round clash against Canadian qualifier Frank Dancevic, who saved five-of-five break point opportunities to defeat Simone Bolelli of Italy 6-2, 7-6(3) in 78 minutes.

Sixth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who rose 169 places to No. 43 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings during the 2007 ATP season, fought hard against Victor Hanescu of Romania in the pair’s first career meeting before running out a 6-3, 4-6, 7-5 victor in a two hours and one minute. Tsonga now faces Ernest Gulbis of Latvia, who knocked out Russian qualifier Andrey Golubev 6-7(9), 6-4, 6-2 in two hours and 18 minutes in the last match of the day on Center Court I.

The oldest player in the draw, 33-year-old Vince Spadea beat No. 8 seed Sebastien Grosjean of France for the first time since Indianapolis in 1999 for a place in the second round against Mischa Zverev of Germany. Spadea, who had reached the Adelaide quarterfinals three times during his career, converted seven of 10 break point opportunities for a 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 win in one hour and 55 minutes. The 29-year-old Grosjean captured his fourth career ATP title in Lyon last year and finished No. 53 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings.

Early in the day, former World No. 7 Mario Ancic of Croatia was forced to withdraw from the tournament due to a stomach illness. Russian Evgeny Korolev subsequently recorded a 6-2, 7-6(7) win over Ancic's replacement: Australian lucky loser Alun Jones.

What the players said:

Hewitt: "It was a perfect return. I got off to a good start, I played pretty aggressively and took it to him the whole time. He's a lot better player than the scoreline indicates though. If you play into his hands and the way he wants to play he can make life tough for you out there. I've seen him play some good matches, especially on hard courts towards the end of last year. I was weary of him going in; I didn't think it was going to be an easy first round match and I felt as if I had to step it up, having not played for a couple of months."

Nieminen: "It is great to start the year with a win. You never know what to expect in the first tournament and first match. My game gets better when I play more matches. If the weather holds like this, then players will be leaving Australia very tired, but this is good preparation for Melbourne. You have to be careful not to practice too much as the matches take a lot out of you. All the players seem to have prepared well at home, as everyone know it is hot here. That is why I start competing in Adelaide, because it is hot, as it really prepares you for Melbourne."

[On new court surface adopted by Tennis Australia:] "I think the new court surface is better as it allows you to play serve and volley and from the baseline. It is easier to move than on last year's surface. When it was hot like this last year the surface got sticky and caused player injuries, such as twisted ankles - including me."

[Compulsary Army training during off-season:] "Immediately after [ATP Masters Series] Paris, I started my military service. Every man in Finland aged 18 and over needs to undertake training before they turn 29. You have to complete six or 11 months of training. I had a special schedule and was there for six weeks. So it was basically my holiday. After three weeks I started my tennis training and they allowed me to practice like normal. Having been at the training a couple of days, it was difficult as I did not know the rules. The other guys had started five weeks earlier, so it took a little time to get used to it. I did not think about tennis at all. We spent one week in a forest, living in a tent and experiencing the same things they did: shooting with different guns etc. I will have completed my training by March."
