Dudi Sela 2009 Indianapolis Tennis Championships Indianapolis, Indiana

Israeli tennis star Dudi Sela came from a set-down to lift the men’s ATP Challenger trophy at the Aegon Open in Nottingham last Sunday.
The number three seed’s 22nd career title came in a hard fought 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 victory against fourth seed, Italy’s Thomas Fabbiano.
The triumph resulted in Sela climbing 17 places in the ATP rankings to 81.
In earlier rounds the 31-year-old defeated Denis Kudla, Ricasdas Berankis, Lloyd Glasspool and Marius Copil without dropping a set in his impressive run to the final.
But it came too late for automatic qualification for Wimbledon this month, although he might get a wildcard as he did after winning the Nottingham tournament back in 2011.
Sela started off the season in fine form by winning the Canberra Challenger then reaching the second round of the Australian Open.
But erratic form saw Sela miss out on automatically qualifying for the French Open.
Sela must now decide whether to compete in next week’s Wimbledon qualifiers; however should he resist the challenge he has now automatically qualified for the US Open in August.
