What a season Juan Monaco of Argentina is having! The 28 year old lifted his third trophy of the year at the German Open Tennis Championships, after overpowering German favorite Tommy Haas in straight sets 7-5, 6-4 in 2 hours. He displayed tremendous will power and fighting back abilities in this match, coming back from a break down in both sets to eventually come out on top.
This victory would be a very special one for Monaco, who lifted his first ever ATP 500 event Trophy today and also entered into the coveted Top-10 for the first time in his career. This clay court specialist has been performing really well and consistently to deserve such a great honor.
In an hour's play, Monaco wrapped the first set 7-5, after trailing 1-4. Monaco kept digging and was rewarded with 2 breaks, one coming in the decisive eleventh game. Haas raced away in the earlier part of the set but when Monaco got into the groove, it was really hard for Haas to stop him. With plenty of errors coming form the Haas racquet, it was like he gifted the set to Monaco.
The second set started in almost similar fashion, Haas breaking Monaco early in the set. But Monaco proved why he is an upcoming star as he sneaked his way through the games and slowly got hold of the situation. Haas, though tried coming into the match with the crowd's support, ran out of luck in the end and ended up losing the match, leaving the home crowd disappointed.
