#471 Petr Michnev (Hawaii-Pacific '14) won his second singles title this year, and third of his career, with a come from behind win over #542 Corentin Denolly in the finals of the $10K Austria F7 Futures in Poertschach. Denolly broke Michnev in a two-deuce after trailing 40/0 to go ahead 3-2 in the first and then only dropped two more points on serve in route to taking the set 6-4. Michnev broke Denolly in a one-deuce game to go ahead 3-1 in the second and then he broke him again in a four-deuce game to take the set 6-2. Denolly went ahead 4-2 in the third set after breaking from 15/40 and then holding from 40/15 but it was all Michnev in the next four games. Michnev held at love, broke in a one-deuce game, held at love, and broke from 15/40 to close out the 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 win.

Michnev entered the week with a career high singles ranking of 471 and with no points to defend until October he has a good chance to surge into the top 400.
