Said's double, Omeyer's maiden main title, TesterAVI keeps rolling. That's how the grass seaon could be summarized in short. Tester captured his first 500s grass title beating Richie in final easily, dealing Richie out one the toughest losses in his career, 6-2 6-0. Omeyer lifted his first title of this season and his career, showing grass suits him well, beating TheRetroPrime in close 7-6 6-3 fashion. Last and biggest highlight of the grass season is for sure huge level spike showed by Said, who backed it up by by winning his first two titles of his career. First in Garry Weber Open, 500s, beating resurging Kenos 6-4 6-2 and second in Mallorca week after, beating AlexJasmins 6-3 3-1 ret.
Many thought Tester's playstyle is more and mostly suited for slower courts. The man however, proved them wrong when he steamrolled through hugely packed Gerry Weber Open draw, dropping only set against Pablo Hernandez. Excluding walkovers, Tester is now at ongoing 11 match win streak, currently competing at Wimbledon quarterfinal.
Despite less soundy names in Mercedes Cup draw, we could still see some of the solid and also new up and coming players performing on Stuttgart's grass. Omeyer. Some thought this tournament could be where rharm could lift his first big trophy or TheRetroPrime end his title drought. Instead, Omeyer provided his A-game especially in crucial moments in both Semifinal and Final, showing clutch nature and winning important points. He despatched both Rharm and TheRetroPrime with same score 7-6 6-3 in semifinal and final respectively.
Said already flashed some signs of improvement by the end of clay season, but he fully exploded on the quickest surface. As an unseeded of winner of both tournaments, Gerry Weber Open and Mallorca Championships, he successively beated, amongst others, such names as TheRetroPrime, Rharm, Kenos, Klizan, Henrijames, Jmills or Alexjasmins. Indeed great scalps of great players in short timespan. Even though his Wimbledon campaing has already ended on the racket of Talwoutte (l. 4-6 4-6 2-6), he will be the force to be reckoned with at the top of game in the upcoming months.
