Day 5 Results

Semifinal Day. Great Matches. The Copa 2013 at its best.

Varvara FLINK of Russia, who in the quarterfinals ousted top seed Christina MAKAROVA of USA, continued her quest to the final with a stellar 6-4, 6-0 victory over Victoria RODRIGUEZ of Mexico. Although the Mexican girl (seeded no. 3) played a better game than in her previous lackluster win against Laura UCROS of Colombia, she was outgunned by the Russian’s strong and pinpoint groundstrokes. At 16 years of age, Varvara’s game is well developed and more rounded than many other girls in the draw. We foresee a strong career ahead of the sixth seeded player.

The other finalist coming out of Friday´s matches is Veronika KUDERMETOVA, also from Russia, thereby assuring a Russian Girls Champion for the 2013 Copa del Café. Veronika, seeded no.4, beat some strong players on her way to the final and outlasted no. 2 seed Karin KENNEL of Switzerland in the quarterfinal, winning 6-4, 7-6. Although only 15 years old, she looks and plays older, and ranked at 38 in the world she will be a formidable opponent for the 126 ranked FLINK.

In the Boys´ draw no. 1 seed Nikola MILOSEVIC of Serbia was able to overcome an atrociously slow start to down no. 4 seed Jorge Bryan PANTA of Peru 0-6, 7-6, 6-1. In a very entertaining match both players as heavy hitters traded punch and counterpunch to the corners. In the end the splendid PANTA did not have enough gas in the tank to maintain the hitting pace and MILOSEVIC was able to prevail. At no. 3 in the world, MILOSEVIC will be the favorite for the championship.

The other finalist is Tommy MYLNIKOV of Canada who beat Juan Sebastian MARINO of Colombia in the last Friday evening match by a score of 7-5, 6-2. Unranked, he has toppled some strong players in the earlier rounds (GOMEZ of Mexico seeded 5, NAKAGAWA of Japan no. 10, and GEENS of Belgium no. 3) along his path in the draw. Another heavy hitter, MYLNIKOV has already surprised several better ranked players and may yet surprise again in the final despite his inferior world ranking of no. 91. It will be a great final.
