BLOG: Czech Open Final
Hey everyone, Well last week was an interesting and exciting week. Czech Open was the first time in quite a few years where i have played singles and doubles in the same tournament. The reason for me playing doubles was because Tony is away in India and i thought it would be fun to play a tournament with Sam and i also thought it would take my mind of the singles a little bit and that it did!! First up in the singles was Ashley Moss from Australia.
Sorry for the delay in getting this blog up.. seems like my days are getting shorter and shorter. Last week i was back in Ireland to play Autumn Open. I decided to play this tournament for a few reasons. Firstly – I have never won Autumn Open before and i wanted to J and i figured that it would be a good lead up to Czech Open for some confidence. To me it doesnt really matter what kind of tournament it is.. If i win i will still get the same feeling. The last time i played it was when i was 15/16(i had my 16th birthday on the saturday of the tournament) I lost in the quarter final to Nigel Boyne in 3 sets.
Well its been some time since my last blog. I last updated here after my defeat at Bitburger Open and i that match is still on my mind in some kind of way. I should ofcourse should just forget about it and move on but for some reason i am finding it hard to do after this match.
What a nightmare... I lost this afternoon in 2 sets to Eetu Heino from Finland. I cant really understand what happened in there as I really felt good leading up to this week after last week.
Well unfortunately i lost my match on tuesday against Hsuan Yi Hsueh in two sets. I lost 21 16 21 14. I had never seen him before and I had watched a video of him play on monday and I really thought that his level was not that high after watching the video. So when i went in there i got a big surprise as he was very good and his attack was absolutely insane.
Hey everyone, Well the draw is out now.. The tournament will start on monday.I will play on Tuesday at 11:10. Up first i will meet a guy from Chinese Taipei called Hsuan Yi Hsueh.
