Two of the fastest improving players on the tour did battle in the final of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships. On this occasion it was Chump101 who prevailed 7-5 6-3 to claim his second title of the season.
With Chump and Advocate both fresh off title winning runs recently in Rotterdam and Memphis respectively, their 2011 results firmly put them on the shortlist of potential winners before the ATP 500 event commenced.
Advocate0f04, who was seeded seventh, was grateful for some early round retirements following his long trip from North America, before easing past Zintonio in the semi-final. Meanwhile the unseeded Chump101 overcame Australian Open Champion DRII, Corrbuster and Matt4U2NV before closing out the final with a single break in each set.
Both players depart the UAE with identical 15-4 records for the season.
