Today's Hamburg final was a fun match. Neither Simon nor Almagro possesses a big kill shot so rallies were long with lots of tactics involving angles and court position: classic clay court tennis. This was Simon's ninth ATP tour title but his first at the 500 tournament level, as the commentators frequently reminded us.
