There's been Marat's, Xavier's, Julien's, Igor's, and Yergen's this week at The Racquet Club. In other words, 32 of the best tennis players from around the world battling for the Regions Morgan Keegan Championship. We settle for simpler names in the final....Sweeden's Robin Soderling who defeated #1 seed Andy Roddick to get here....taking on Belgium's Steve Darcis.
Darcis dominated the first set thanks in part to some unforced errors from Sodeling, taking the first set 6-3. But it wasn't all opponent error as they went to a 2nd set tie-break. On match point...off the serve...Soderling hit long and it was time to get emotional!!!
Darcis wins the 2008 Memphis Title 6-3,7-6 in his first trip to Memphis. He pocketed a check for $163,750 for his efforts this week at The Racquet Club.
