Wilson Players Continue Summer Success
Using their Wilson [K]Six-One 95 rackets, ATP World Tour No. 51 Andreas Beck and qualifier Thomaz Bellucci battled it out on Sunday to see who would take home their first ATP Tour singles title at the Allianz Suisse Open Gstaad.
Thomaz Bellucci defeated Beck 64 76(2) in the final to win his first ATP Tour title. Bellucci had a huge week, as he played the upset king defeating #1 seed Wawrinka, #3 seed Russian Andreev, and #6 seed Wilson player Nicolas Kiefer en route to the finals. With this title win, Thomaz became the first Brazilian to win an ATP Tour title since 2004 and also returns to the top 100 on the ATP Tour rankings.
On the WTA Tour side, it was an all Wilson doubles final in Stanford as [K]Blade Team players, Venus and Serena Williams defeated [K]Tour player Yung-Jan Chan and [K]Pro Open player Monica Niculescu 64 61 for the Bank of the West Classic title. Venus Williams also reached the finals of the singles before falling to Bartoli in a tough fought three-setter.
In Istanbul, Lucie Hradecka had a successful week as she reached the finals of singles and took the doubles title with Voracova. Using her [K]Tour to victory, Hradecka now owns a total of seven WTA Tour Doubles titles.
“It was another great week for the Wilson Tour Team. It’s fantastic to see many of our players having success through the US Open Series and we look forward to the weeks ahead,” says Massimo Calvelli, Wilson Tour Director.
This week the WTA Tour stops in Los Angeles and the ATP Tour is headed to Washington DC.
