Romania's top player for several years now, the 6' 6" Hanescu is unusual for a big man in that clay is his best surface. Most tall players - John Isner and Ivo Karlovic, for instance - are power players whose strengths are best exhibited on faster courts. This is Hanescu's fifth career ATP final, all on clay.
