finished australian season with great results, i made my best result ever in singles , Sf in Auckland , I won 1st round 63 64 against seb(8seed), 2nd round 76 46 76 against vampire zattitude, qf won against naastoo 64 67 63 and lose in the semis to mario 36 06.
1st round: this was my second meeting against seb , i lose first in 3 sets , 76 in the 3rd. but now i think i was advantaged by the tour settings (realistic+elite). also, don t was my opponent best day and i won pretty easy 63 64.
2nd round : wow, it was a hard and long match , me and my friend, vampirezattitude start to play one day and finishead another day. i and my opponent served good and in match was just a break(made by my opponent in second set). at 43 for me in last set , vampire propose my to stop playing because in her country it s too late. Then i was rally tense and say him '' you saw than I'm in a good form and want to postponed our match ''
)))) , vampire was angry . put in the next day we made peace and still remaining friends. i don t know why make me to say that words but i think i was really frustrated at that moment.
qf: it was a tought match, i won first set and in the second i tought than the match is already won and I relaxed a little and naastoo proved me than he's a top player and he don t give up never. in the 3rd i keep my concentration from first set and manage to win
sf: i played pretty good just in the first part of first set, till 33 , then i don t know what happen with my concentration and my play.
in doubles competition in auckland, i had a bye in first round and in the second i lose dramatic 13-11 in master tie break, after my opponent, quasar saved 2 match points.
Australian Open> Singles
I have a easy first round win against marko voli jj 62 63 61 , but in the second round i was unlucky to meet maryanucci, a verry good player and i lose 06 06 16. i don t played good and the game which was won by me i think was a gift from maryanucci at the score of 06 06 05
Doubles> i made my best result in a GS tournament -QF
1st round- i had a bye
2nd round - i took revenge to maryanucci after he beat me in singles , i beat him in doubles 61 62. great play by me
3rd round-was my first big victory on tour , against number 4 in doubles and 3rd seed of competition, 76 62. i play also good , expecially in the tie break of 1st set when i think there was the key of the match (deguan lead 4-1 but i return and won 8-6 )
QF- lose against Mario after a horrible first set , 06 and a balanced second but i lose it too, 5-7
