“I am very happy that I’ve managed to win another big battle, against a former top 10’s, against a current top30 player. It was a difficult match. Unlike yesterday, perhaps less physically, but mentally … In the final set I had some break chances, but I failed to lived with them for a long time. WhenI finally did, I couldn’t won my service game. But in the last two games I was able to play with lot of winners, without errors. So finally I managed to win the game!!! Thanks for the support of two local Hungarians and everyone else at home”– said Timi.
