Cassis, France

[3] Hugo Grenier (FRA) def [2] James Duckworth (AUS) 7-5, 6-4

Aussie James Duckworth has fallen just short of a thirteenth ATP Challenger singles title at the hands of Frenchman Hugo Grenier.

For Grenier, it is a third career title at the level, and a second since July this year.

Playing in front of his home crowd in the south of France, Grenier proved too consistent for the Australian – ultimately taking out the final in two tight sets.

The 26-year-old Frenchman will now rise inside the ATP top 100 for the first time in his career on the back of a strong season.

Meanwhile, after dropping down to world number 83, Duckworth will rise back 13 places to 70 in the ATP rankings.

Commencing the week at world number 464, Parker came through qualifying in dominant fashion – carrying that momentum into Sunday’s final, before French opponent was forced to retire.

Parker – who has spent time with Swede Thomas Enqvist in recent years – has big weapons, including a strong serve and forehand combination.

The British 25-year-old will rise over 100 places in the ATP rankings to live world number 351.

Meanwhile in Bangkok, Aussie Omar Jasika – who is continuing his professional tennis comeback – reached a Challenger semifinal for the second consecutive week.

In front of a full-house crowd supporting two locals in the final, Carballes Baena managed fewer unforced errors than his Spanish counterpart to claim the 90K title.

The 29-year-old will now rise to world number 73 – two spots below his career high, while Zapata Miralles remains just below at number 80.

In Sunday’s final, Kovalik and Sels struggled to break serve, with just two of fifteen chances converted between them, before the Slovakian stepped up in both tiebreaks to lift the trophy.

Kovalik will rise to number 155, whilst Sels jumps inside the ATP top 200 for the first time – at 199.
