The tournament is over and what a week it was! A big thank you to Albury City Council and Albury Tennis Association, for their great hospitality and support over the week of tennis.
Top seed Brydan Klein (GBR) continued his great run on the Albury Grasscourts over the past fortnight, booking himself a spot in the Singles Final with a convincing 6-3 6-2 win against fourth seed Shuichi Sekiguchi (JPN).
Klein is yet to drop a set all week and will look to round out his great week in Albury with a victory.
His opponent in the Final was Matthew Romios (VIC). Romios is through due to the withdrawal of Chris O’Connell (NSW).
Romios claimed a 6-1 3-0 Ret. win to book his spot in the final.
The Doubles Final has been played, with number two seeds Brydan Klein (GBR) and Scott Puodziunas (QLD) taking the honours with a 4-6 7-5 11-9 win against number one seeds Arjun Kadhe (IND) and Jason Taylor (NSW).
The Men’s Singles Final was played between number one seed Brydan Klein (GBR) and Matthew Romios (VIC) on centre court in Albury.
Klein and Romios played out a number of tight rallies early, as both players tried their best to settle into the rhythm of the match. Romios fought back to get back on serve at 2-3 in the first set, before Klein showed his experience and took control of the match to take the first set 6-2. Klein continued to put his foot down in the second set, with Romios showing some resistance early on serve, but Klein was relentless in the end, claiming the match 6-2 6-1 in just over an hour.
