FINAL NOTES - TURSUNOV WINS FIRST TITLE OF YEAR, SECOND OF CAREER
• Dmitry Tursunov won his second career ATP singles title with a 6-4, 7-5 win in one hour and 17 minutes over Frank Dancevic in the Indianapolis Tennis Championships final.
• Tursunov won his first ATP singles title on hardcourts at Mumbai last year; he is now 2-1 lifetime in ATP singles finals, having also finished runner-up at Los Angeles last year.
• Tursunov improves to 7-2 lifetime at Indianapolis, going 1-1 in reaching the second round in 2005 (falling to Andy Roddick), 1-1 in reaching the third round last year (receiving a first round bye but eventually falling to Xavier Malisse) and 5-0 in winning the title this past week, as the No. 3 seed.
• Tursunov is now 19-13 this season, which includes winning 14 of his last 18 matches.
• Frank Dancevic was playing his first career ATP singles final, having never even won consecutive main draw matches on the ATP circuit previously.
• Dancevic was the first Canadian to advance to an ATP quarterfinal (or better) since Sebastien Lareau reached the Memphis semifinals on February 24, 2001, and was the first Canadian citizen to advance to an ATP final since Greg Rudedski captured the Seoul title on April 30, 1995.
• Dancevic, unseeded, upset No. 8 seed Benjamin Becker in the first round and then notched his first career Top 10 win (in four tries) over top-seeded World No. 5 Roddick in the semifinals.
WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID
Tursunov: "I'm very pleased that I won. I definitely didn't expect to do that well following my results in Los Angeles. I was pleased with the fact that I got the job done, because a few years ago I probably would have been losing my composure out there, to say the least."
"I knew that he was going to be nervous and I was a little bit nervous as well, a little bit less maybe than him simply because I've been there before and have a little bit of experience playing in the finals before. So my main concern was to try to concentrate on the positive things and the things that were working. I think that's what made the difference."
Dancevic: "Congratulations to Dmitry for a great performance and a great week this week. I was the last guy to get in this tournament - I took a long drive down from Niagara Falls and got here last minute, but had a great time this week. It was really special to me. Hopefully I'll be back next year."
DOUBLES FINAL - DEL POTRO, PARROTT WIN CLASH BETWEEN FIRST-TIME PAIRS
• The first-time combination and alternate team of Travis Parrott and Juan Martin del Potro defeated Teimuraz Gabashvili and Ivo Karlovic 3-6, 6-2, 10-6 (Match TB). Parrott ensured that an American was part of the winning doubles team for the fourth consecutive year.
• Parrott won his second doubles title (Los Angeles 2003); Argentine del Potro had never before appeared in a doubles final. • Del Potro collected his first career ATP doubles title while Parrott earned his second, having already won at Los Angeles in 2003 (with Jan-Michael Gambill).
WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID
Del Potro: "It was fantastic to play doubles with Parrott. I'm so happy because I've never won a doubles tournament. For the rest of my life, I will remember this tournament."
Parrott: "He serves big. He returns big. I just had to do the clean up. We were scrambling a bit to catch up, and then it switched and they were scrambling a bit to catch up. We definitely had the momentum going into that third."
