Czech International 2017


        The last tournament before a break was the Czech international in Karviná. Great organisation and great fans are the reason why I always look forward to playing there.

        The tournament began for me on Thursday evening, my first opponent was Ondřej Král, the Czech Junior champion. I won 21/16 21/16 without considerable problems and went on to play on Friday, which became an “Asian day” for me. On Friday morning, I was up against Sahil Sipani from India. It was a fierce, high-pace match, with very fast rallies and attacks from both sides. I managed to win 21/15, 21/18. My next match, the quarterfinal, was right in the afternoon, at 18:30, against Cheng Chen from Taiwan. I have to admit that both of these matches were really tough and tiresome, because of the offensive, fast game and long rallies. However, after 67 minutes, I wore my opponent out and I won this match 17/21, 21/13, 21/15.

        I was so happy that I got into the semifinal after two really good performances. But I was stopped there by Daniel Chislov from Israel. Or better said, I stopped myself. I won the first match decisively 21/11, but after that, I was just catching up. Even though I had a matchball in the second set, and a lead of 21/16 in the third set, in the end I lost 21/11, 21/23, 19/21.

        This tournament was the last one in the first half of 2017. Now I have two free weeks in front of me, and then I will start physical and on court training, which will culminate in my first Senior world championship in late August in Glasgow. Thanks everyone for your support! Greetings from Brno, Adam
