Famous for its thermal springs, Oradea is the capital city of Bihor County in Crisana, Romania and last week played host to a Futures tournament for the fourth time.

This clay court tournament provided Hungarian Davis Cup player Adam Kellner with his first Futures singles title of his career in what was his third appearance in a Futures singles final. Kellner, the 6th seed, defeated the tournaments top seed, Gabriel Moraru in straight sets in the final, 64 62.

In the doubles event, 3rd seeds Radu Albot and Andrei Ciumac, who are undefeated in doubles together for Moldova in Davis Cup, reached their fourth career Futures doubles final together and a hard fought 76(5) 67(5) [10-3] victory over Australians Steven Goh and Zachary Van Min, gave them their first title.
