21 April 2014

World No. 3 Stanislas Wawrinka (VCORE Tour GSHT-PRO) defeated  fellow Swiss player Roger Federer with a 4-6, 7-6(5), 6-2 score line in the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters final last week. It was the first all-Swiss final on ATP Tour in 14 years.

Stan was very solid in the final, especially in his service games, scoring 80% of his 1st serve points. Also, he capitalized on three of seven break chances throughout the match, overcoming his rival. It was Stan’s second time defeating Roger in their 15 matchups.

Claiming his first ATP Tour Masters 1000 title, Stan’s match record for the season rose to 20-3, with 6-0 against Top 10 players. Also, he became the 11th active player to achieve 100 ATP Masters 1000 match wins with his semifinal victory against sixth-seeded David Ferrer on Saturday.

Donna Vekic (VCORE Xi 100), another VCORE player, also had a great achievement of her own to further her career. She captured her first WTA Tour title at the BMW Malaysian Open, overcoming top-seeded 2014 Australian Open finalist Dominika Cibulkova in the final.

The Croatian rising star showed brilliant performance with her attacks during the final, scoring 11 amazing service aces and making 17 break chances. From one set behind her tough opponent, Donna played persistently to win a close full-set match, 5-7, 7-5, 7-6(4).

At 17 years, 10 months and 23 days old, she is the first player under 18 to win a WTA title since Vania King won Bangkok in 2006 at 17 years, 8 months and 12 days old.

Meanwhile, Australian star Nick Kyrgios (EZONE Ai 98) achieved his second ATP Challenger Tour title at the Sarasota Open in Florida since winning in Sydney last year.
