Yesterday I won my maiden ATP Challenger Final in Launceston Tasmania. With a 6-7 – 6-1 - 6-2 win over number 221 Andrey Golubev from Russia.
My sincere thank you goes out to Peter Luzcak who battled on with me all week and gave me the most amazing advice and mentorship of my whole career. He was truly my rock down there, kept me grounded and I want to thank him for that. Glen Newberry and Agnes Petocz were also there to cheer me on, who have been one of my major supports all my tennis life and dear friends who have been with me since I was six or seven. So happy to have them their for this moment!
This day to me still seems like a miracle and feels very surreal. I fought hard until the last point was over. I am so happy right now and want to continue with this belief and with hard work can make it again at this level.
I want to thank Rob Aivatolgou who was mid flight from Canada while I played the Final but always there for me thanks Rob.
