Both championship matches got started, but rain pushed both the Mercedes Cup final in Stuttgart and the ‘s-Hertogenbosch Ricoh Open final in the Netherlands to Monday.


In Stuttgart, No. 3 seed Dominic Thiem trailed No. 7 seed Philipp Kohlschreiber 2-3 when the fourth and final rain delay brought the match to a close.

Thiem is looking for a first career grasscourt title after shocking Roger Federer in the semifinals. Former Halle winner Kohlschreiber is looking for a second career title on the lawns. Five of Kohlschreiber’s seven career ATP titles have come in Germany, and he has not lost to Thiem in two career meetings.

In ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Frenchman Nicolas Mahut, who always seems to resume any title hopes on the grass each season, won the first set 6-4 from Gilles Muller when the match was halted.

Mahut is the defending champion, and also won the title in 2013. Muller is 0-3 in career finals.

Once again poor reporting. Thiem is trailing 2-3 in the tie break but there is no mention of tiebreak anywhere in tennis-x post.

Meanwhile both of my favorites won grass titles, Thiem and Mahut:)

Future is looking bright for Thiem!
Kohlschreiber has also had quite a good year so far
