Tennis: Tursunov wins Singapore ATP Challenger
Tursunov showed his superiority with a 88% success rate on first-serves and just losing 11 points in the two sets that saw a filled stand at the Singapore Island Country Club, even on a rainy Monday morning. Rosol started well in the first set, but the wily Tursunov waited for his opportunities, striking in the 7th game to go up 4-3, and he never looked back after that. The only opportunity Rosol ever had on Tursunov’s serve was in the 2nd game, when he was up 40-30, but Tursunov held on strongly to his serve.
