After breaking onto the scene in late 2010 by winning the ITST Open, Chump101 once again marked himself as one to watch as the unseeded American upset top seed Lonamer11 7-6 7-6 to win the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament.
Lonamer, who was playing his first event since losing in the final of the Australian Open, had adapted quickly to the lightning quick conditions, but so had his opponent and the match was dominated by serve.
The first set saw no break points for either player, and in the tiebreak just a single point against the serve was enough for Chump101 to secure the advantage. Early in the second Lonamer appeared to be getting to grips with his returns when he carved out 3 break points, but they were swiftly snuffed out and Chump101 rode his luck to the tiebreak which he won 7-2.
The clearly delighted American said after the match “Lonamer is an amazing player. Winning a set against him is hard enough, winning both is just unreal.” Chump101 moves to 11-4 for the season whilst Lonamer stands at 10-3.
