Dusseldorf Masters 2021: Duda over Jha in Tight Final

(by Steve Hopkins)

Kanak Jha and Benedikt Duda were the top ranked players in this week’s Dusseldorf Masters event.  Each advanced to the Final where Duda outlasted Jha for a 3-2 win with the players traded games and momentum.

Sunday’s event was the fifth of seven events.  Like the other events in the series, there was a mix of ranked players and young Germans.  Cedric Meissner is the Series points leader, but Jha had no trouble topping the young German in straight sets 3-0.  Jha over Meissner is a flip from a week ago where Meissner blanked Jha in a Semifinal upset. This week Duda’s Semifinal match was tight, with Benno Oehme (currently 4th in the points standings) taking a 2-0 lead before Duda managed to win three close games to win.

Current Point Leaders:  Meissner 130, Oehme 95, Duda 80, Assar 80, Stumper 70, Ovtcharov 55, Kallberg 50
