Murray close to ATP finals

Kennelbach/Austria — HEAD Racquet Rebel Andy Murray is close to reaching the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals next month in London as he won his third title in the last five weeks with a 3-6, 7-6(7), 7-6(8) win over Tommy Robredo at the Valencia Open.


The HEAD player was fresh from his title win over Spain’s David Ferrer a week ago in Vienna. Murray, who recommends the HEAD Graphene Radical, is in the chase for one of four spots remaining at the year-end event. Murray now owns 31 career titles and has hauled himself back into the race to London over the past month.

“I know it was an incredible match,” said Murray. “The tennis in the second set and at the end of the match was high level. I played well at the right moments. I like playing here. It’s a nice place to come this time of year.”

HEAD Racquet Rebel Nenad Zimonjic, who promotes the HEAD Graphene Speed, made the most of a temporary pairing with Canadian Vasek Pospisil and won the Swiss Indoors title in Basel over Henri Kontinen and HEAD’s Marin Draganja 7- 6(13), 1-6, 10-5. Zimonjic was making his fifth finals appearance in his last five visits to Basel.

HEAD player Jeremy Chardy, who endorses the HEAD Graphene Radical lost the Valencia doubles final along with first-time partner Kevin Anderson; the pair was defeated by Jean-Julien Rojer of the Netherlands and Romanian Horia Tecau, 4-6, 2-6. In Singapore at the WTA Finals HEAD’s Roberta Vinci, who recommends the HEAD IG Extreme, finished the season on world No. 1 in doubles; she is joined on 9,315 points by fellow Italian partner Sara Errani. The pair have dominated the team game in recent seasons, finishing at the top of the ranking for a third straight year and winning five doubles titles in 2014, including the Australian Open and Wimbledon. “Sara and Roberta have been the most dominant doubles team over the past three years,” said WTA CEO Allaster. “They are fan favorites around the world and continue to be terrific ambassadors for tennis and the WTA.”

In the Singapore doubles final, it was second place for HEAD player Peng Shuai as the Chinese, who recommends the HEAD IG Extreme, lost 1-6, 0-6 to Cara Black and Sania Mirza. It was the first time in 12 doubles finals that the pair has lost.
