‘’On the tour’’….Futures in Uzbekistan…New Career High…!
Hello my friends from Athens, after 3 weeks in Uzbekistan and the futures tournaments I was playing there.
It's been one year that i took my first professional points in the ATP for the singles and today i have a new career high ranking on 673, while for the doubles my ranking is even better on 571...!
I supposed to be happy for this but to tell you the truth, I am not, cause for sure i had a lot of chances to be in better ranking, at least after my tour in Uzbekistan...!
At the first tournament in Karshi after 2 wins, I lost in quarters for singles from Gadomski P. (ATP S.R. :348) and in doubles I was finalist.
At the second tournament in Namangan for 15000USD, I won first round against Gadomski who beat me in Karshi, by playing really good and in the second round I lost from my friend Ismailov T. in the 3rd set , who was in a perfect ‘’serve’’ day and he served to me 21 aces and after he was finalist of the tournament…!
For doubles I lost in semis from no 1 in the draw!
At the third tournament in Andijan again for 15000USD, I lost for the singles in second round from Muzaev R. (ATP S.R.:787) in the 3rd set, while I was leading 4-1…! Then Muzaev was finalist at the tournament…!
For doubles I lost first round from no 4 seed of the draw, and then they were finalist…!
What can I say about this? Who beat me in singes or doubles then or he took the tournament or he was in final…!
My last 10 of 13 defeats are in the 3rd set, in 4 of them I had match ball up and in the other 6, i was set up and break up in the 2nd or in the 3rd...! I think and
I hope, that from now on, after all this experience, I will be better in the critical points and finally win this kind of matches…!
Now I am in Athens with my training team, prepare for at least 3 weeks and soon I will let you know my new tournaments…!
Stay in touch…!!!
