  • Robredo topples Anderson for Casablanca title

    4/14/13 8:02 PM | Ricky Dimon
    Robredo topples Anderson for Casablanca title Tommy Robredo captures his 11th ATP title by defeating Kevin Anderson in the Casablanca final on Sunday. Robredo improves to 11-7 in ATP finals while Anderson drops to 2-3.

    Tommy Robredo defeated Kevin Anderson 7-6(6), 4-6, 6-3 in the final of the Grand Prix Hassan II on Sunday afternoon. Playing in Casablanca for the first time since finishing runner-up to Guillermo Canas in 2011, Robredo triumphed in two hours and 19 minutes.

    Anderson got off to a strong start by breaking in the second game of the match and surging to a 3-0 lead in the first set. The second-seeded South African, however, eventually gave it back at 4-2 and was pushed to a tiebreaker. Robredo gave back a late mini-break in the decider, but he earned a crucial return point at 6-6 before serving it out.

    One break decided the second, and it came right away. Robredo double-faulted on break point to open the set and missed his only chance to get back on level terms. Anderson held the entire way and forced a third set with a clutch hold at 5-4.

    A competitive final frame of play also came down to little more than break-point conversions. Robredo capitalized on his lone opportunity at 3-2 and he saved all four of the break points he faced to make his advantage stand up. The 72nd-ranked Spaniard battled out of a 0-30 deficit at 5-3 to clinch victory.

    Robredo is now 11-7 lifetime in ATP finals after capturing his first title in more than two years. Anderson, who was competing in his first clay-court final, falls to 2-3.
