Hollywood Ending for Robredo at the Movistar
GREENVILLE, SC — Down a break in the third set, Dunlop Tour Team player Tommy Robredo summoned his experience and fortitude to score a dramatic 6-2, 2-6, 7-6 (5) win yesterday in the Movistar Open in Santiago, Chile. The Spaniard overcame Colombian Santiago Giraldo en route to his 10th ATP World Tour title, and the first for a player wielding a Dunlop Biomimetic frame.
Robredo , who uses the Biomimetic 600, raced out to a commanding lead in the first set, and was also up a break in the second before Giraldo fought back. Robredo found himself down 5-3 in the third, before rallying for a third set tiebreak win. “I feel I started the year well. I am feeling great. It gives me a lot of hope to continue this way,” he said. “I think I can have the best or one of the best years in my career in 2011.”
“It’s great to see the confidence our Tour Team is feeling with their new Biomimetic rackets,” said Kai Nitsche, Dunlop’s Vice President of Racket Sports. “This Tour win continues what we started in November when the Biomimetic range hit stores. With five new models being delivered to the finest pro and specialty retailers across the country in the next 30 days, the Dunlop momentum just keeps building.”
