Tennis round-up

All 3 tournaments have their final line-ups.

The St Petersburg final will have top seed Mikhail Youzhny going for a title defence and 250 valuable points towards his bid for the O2.  He certainly is cutting it fine as he had to save 4, yes 4 MP's against fellow Russian Dmitry Tursunov.

In the final he will play Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan who overcame Ukraine's Ilya Marchenko in straight sets.

Here are some match reports:

In Vienna we have an all Austrian final as Lucky Loser Haider-Maurer continues the fairy tail run and has reached his first ATP final.  On the other side of the net will be #1 seed Jurgen Melzer as he overcame Nicolas Almagro.  Melzer is the defending champion.

The all French semi final was won in 3 sets by Gael Monfils.  He will be going for title #1 of 2010 against golden oldie Ivan Ljubicic who came through against Montanes.  Ljubicic is going for a title defence and #2 of 2010 after his memorable win at the Indian Wells Masters in March.

As you will have read all 3 finals tomorrow have the defending champion in the line-up.  Will there prevail?
