Thanks for nice words , Mark. Yes, it was a great tournament for me and yea, i was close to make the surprise in the semifinal, even in first set i played quite bad in important moments.... I rissed my level in the 2nd and 3rd set, especilly in 2nd when I told myself that I have to change something and I became really agressive. In the 2nd set I played my best tennis ever and nevertheless was hard to win that set (i was 4-2 up then he was up 5-4 and it was hard to win that game at 5-4 and in the tb ShoNe was 5-3 up and also had a mp but i succeded in winning that tb somehow
and in 3rd, he was 3-0 up but then i won next 4 games and there were another 2 breaks in 11th and 12th games which led us again to the tb: it was definitely a lottery but he played amazing and won first 6 points , my partener tryed 2 dropshots which converted into winners by ShoNe's cpu and was a bit dissapointing to lose 6-7 in 3rd but never mind, it was a good match and good tournament.
And about your decision, I don't think you should stop, maybe you're just in bad form and need to find a rythm of play(it happened to me in first part of the year) . At least,you're top 5 player and it proves you're great. I'm looking forward for your progress in singles, hope I'll improve my singles skills too
