October 30, 2011
TSONGA TOPS DEL POTRO FOR VIENNA TITLE: BRYANS CAPTURE DOUBLES CROWN

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga prospects of qualifying for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals were boosted on Sunday after the Frenchman notched his first victory against Juan Martin del Potro, defeating the Argentine 6-7(5), 6-3, 6-4 to win the Erste Bank Open in Vienna.

With the win, Tsonga moves past Mardy Fish to No. 7 in the South African Airways 2011 ATP Year-To-Date Rankings. "I will try to take all the pressure off myself. I just want to play every tournament and enjoy it," stated Tsonga. "I will try to play my best tennis and not think about it the next two weeks, so we'll see. But of course I hope I will get there."

Bryans Win Vienna Doubles Crown

Top-seeded Americans Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan won their first title since Wimbledon as they defeated No. 2 seeds Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor 7-6(10), 6-3 on Sunday at the Erste Bank Open in Vienna.

CILIC TRIUMPHS IN ST. PETERSBURG OVER TIPSAREVIC: FLEMING/HUTCHINS WIN DOUBLES

Fourth seed Marin Cilic defeated No. 2 seed Janko Tipsarevic 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 to win his first title of the season on Sunday at the St. Petersburg Open. The victory denied Tipsarevic's opportunity to move up to ninth place in the battle for the season-ending Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London.

Third seeds Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins edged wild cards Mikhail Elgin and Alexander Kudryavtsev 6-3, 6-7(5), 10-8 to win their first team title Sunday at the St. Petersburg Open.
