I just was going off memory, but yeah I thought I got that correct.
Perhaps @Nostradamus should watch to find out his call of Zheng winning the title was slightly premature and incorrect."I was comfortable from the first point. I didn't feel any pressure. You know... I'm a chill guy."

And while we're at it, another name that deserves mention on this thread is Francesco Maestrelli, 19 and 193 cm, about to crack the top 500 for the first time next week, not as precocious and maybe not as talented (in the "traditional" sense) as his better-known countrymen, but he has a big booming serve (when he actually hits it flat, which he still does too seldom) and a nice modern game that should make him a tour-level player in a couple of years time.
He's also apparently some kind of Red Cross superhero.Welcome to the top 300, Juncheng Shang, only <18 in the top 500 into his first Challenger final in Lexington. Big, big result.
Also possibly the first human ever to make his pro debut in a challenger (l. 2&3 to Geerts this week in Alicante), followed by his debut on the ATP tour, without having ever played a single ITF-futures match. I think heàll be good but this may be a tad bit arrogant by whoever is managing his schedule...US Open Boys' Champ Martin Landaluce will make his ATP Tour debut next week in Gijon. He'll be the first man born in 2006 to appear in an ATP Tour match.
His dominance this week says a lot about the progress of Federico Cinà, who instead pushed him to the very last point, and really should have won that match. Only 15, Cinà is another name that will be showing up on this thread within a year or two.Three seeds bounced, one in a double bagel by Learner Tien.
Yeah, that's the only match Tien has faced any trouble whatsoever. The set scores for his other matches have been a ricidulous 6-0, 6-3, 6-0, 6-2, 6-0, 6-0.His dominance this week says a lot about the progress of Federico Cinà, who instead pushed him to the very last point, and really should have won that match.
