Kick off & SEB kids day

Den nya Challengern i tennismeckat blir en härlig uppvärmning inför nästa veckas SkiStar Swedish Open.

Extra intressant blir det förstås att följa Sverigeettan Elias Ymer och de andra fyra hemmahoppen. Här finns ett gyllene tillfälle för Christian Lindell, Isak Arvidsson, Markus Eriksson och Carl Söderlund – som alla fått wild card - att imponera på Swedish Open-ledningen. En bra insats denna vecka kan mycket väl leda till en friplats även i ATP-turneringen.

Den nya Challengern är den första på grus på svensk mark och visar upp ett starkt startfält. Där finns till exempel tre topp 100-spelare: Evgeny Donskoy (78), Horacio Zeballos (83) och Carlos Berlocq (95).

Fjärde bäst rankade är Thomas Fabbiano (113) och det är honom Elias Ymer ställs mot i första omgången.

Samtliga svenskar finns på övre halvan och ett är säkert: det blir minst ett hemmahopp i andra omgången. Christian Lindell och Carl Söderlund möts nämligen.

Paire, first french winner since 1981

First time winner Benoit Paire overcame the tough wind and two time champ Tommy Robredo

Benoit Paire stood up against the tough windy conditions on the center court and against two time winner Tommy Robredo.

The 26-year old Frenchman dismissed the spanish veteran who calls Båstad his "second home" in two straight sets. The first set went in to tiebreak and Benoit showed great courage and admirable touch when he finished it of with drop shot, well out of Robredo’s reach.

From there the match was an uphill struggle for the 33-year old Spaniard who did not find a way to master the Frenchman. The second act was a far more confortable journey for Benoit ending it 63.
