Benatky Masters 2019
The last tournament of 2018 was Benátky Masters 2018 in Benátky nad Jizerou. Only 4 players from 4 countries were invited. Adrian Dziolko from Poland, Luka Wraber from Austria a Cristian Savin z Moldova. There were two semifinal matches and then the finals. The opponents were determined during the draw ceremony on Thursday, 27.12.
On Thursday’s semifinals, I was up against Cristian Savina. I had already played against him this year. And this time I won again, in two sets, 21/15, 21/11. The beginning of the match was quite tied, I was figuring out what my opponent’s style is. Then I started to increase the game pace, and I didn’t give Cristian any chance. I was trying to enjoy every moment of the match and I felt great. In the other semifinal, Adrian Dziolko won his match against Luka Wraber.
The finals took place in front of a huge crowd of spectators at 19 o’clock. My Polish opponent, Dziolko, took part in the Olympic Games 2016 in Rio, and in the rankings he is in the top 50. I was enjoying the whole match, just like in the semifinals. I don’t have much to say about it, I won 21/17, 21/15 and the feeling was just amazing. There aren’t many moments like this, but when they do happen, it makes all the loses and setbacks worth it. I was so happy about my performance, especially because it was in my homeland, the Czech Republic.
Now I’m on my way back to Germany, where I will spend the next month preparing for the upcoming tournaments in February. I have enjoyed Christmas very much and I also had time to have a rest.
Now I’m full of energy for the future.
Extraligový víkend přinesl výhry 6:2 a 8:0. Pro mě osobně teda neděle o dost lepší než sobota, ale jedeme naplno. Play Off bude hodně zajímavé. Two wins this weekend with Badminton FSpS MU. Sunday is much better for me than Saturday, but it's really important we have won. Play Off will be really exciting.
