SAP: At the SAP Open in San Jose, Fernando Verdasco beat a top-ten player for the first time in 15 tries with his 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 upset of Andy Roddick. Andy was none too happy about a few line calls that didn’t go his way.

GDF: Top seed Elena Dementieva needed three sets to overcome a nagging Lucie Safarova 6-7 (5), 6-1, 6-4. This is Dementieva’s second title of 2010; she also won the Sydney tournament before the Australian Open.

PTT: Vera Zvonareva successfully defended her title at the PTT Pattaya Open title in Thailand by taking down hometown fave Tamarine Tanasugarn 6-4, 6-4.

ABN AMRO: Swede Robin Soderling was the last man standing in Rotterdam after Mikhail Youzhny retired while trailing 0-2 in the second set. Youzhny sustained the injury after he stunned top seed Novak Djokovic 7-6 (5), 7-6, (6). Soderling also upset a seed, Nikolay Davydenko, in the semis.

JCF: In Costa do Sauipe, the Joma-wearing Juan Carlos Ferrero steamrolled Lukasz Kubot 6-1, 6-0 at the Brasil Open for his 13th career title.

The second drop of the Thomas Reynolds collection — that’s James Blake‘s turn as a creative consultant for Fila — made its appearance in the hardcourts of Australia before heading to Europe for this week’s ABN AMRO World Tennis tournament in the Netherlands. He lost early (to Marcos Baghdatis) in the first round.

Brackets: The quarters for the tourney are now set: Davydenko plays Melzer, Soderling‘s up against Benneteau, Youzhny faces Monfils, and Djokovic will try to keep his top seeding with Leonardo Mayer taking a stab. (Men’s Draw)

Fila: The goods will drop later this month. Stay tuned!
