SWEDEN'S David Engel clinched the Richard Ellis Challenger at Victoria Park yesterday - but not in the way he would have wished, writes Unus Alladin. The final ended when Mexican Oliver Fernandez limped off the court with a groin injury as the Swede was leading 6-1, 1-0. ''It's nice to come away with a win but I feel very sorry for Fernandez. I look forward to playing him again when he's fully fit,'' said the 175th-ranked Engel, who picked up US$3,600 and 50 ranking points. Fernandez vowed to return next year for another crack at the title. ''My groin injury has been bothering me the whole week. I couldn't handle it any more because it was getting very painful,'' he said. It was the second title won by default in the tournament after the American-Japanese combination of Tommy Ho and Shuzo Matsuoka took the doubles following the first-set withdrawal of Germany's Dirk Dier, who was partnering compatriot Alexander Mronz.
