Huber cleans up

Germany's Anke Huber won her first grass-court title yesterday when she beat Helena Sukova of the Czech Republic in straight sets in the final of the Rosmalen women's tournament in Holland. Huber outclassed her opponent 6-3, 7-6 with some excellent play from the baseline, and despite twice dropping her serve in the second set, she managed to fight back to take the set to a tie-break, which she claimed 7-2, winning the last five points in a row.

The French Open champion, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, reached the final of the Halle grass-court tournament yesterday with a victory over Daniel Vacek which underlined the strength of his challenge at Wimbledon next week. He will face the Swedish qualifier Nicklas Kulti, who beat American Richey Reneberg, in the final.
