Robredo Wins Battle Between Dunlop Tour Team Members
GREENVILLE, SC -– Wielding his Dunlop Aerogel 300, Tommy Robredo clinched his first title of the season Sunday, defeating Tomas Berdych (and his Dunlop Aerogel 200) 6-4, 6-1 in Bastad at the Catella Swedish Open.
The Dunlop Tour Team has won three titles and reached eight finals in 2008, placing Dunlop Aerogel racquets amongst the most successful on the ATP Tour.
