Turkey Blog – 11 February 2011

Hi, Just giving you an update on how things are going in Turkey.In the third Tournament I won my first round 6/3 7/6 against a guy who was 1700 ATP. In the second round I played the Number 9 Junior in the World and he is 800 ATP, I lost 6/4 6/7 6/0 the match went for 3.5 hours I had many chances in the first set and even though the third set was 6/0 I had game points in every game. Even though I lost Dad was so happy as the guy was Runner Up at Orange Bowl a few weeks ago. In other news the guy who made the Quarter Finals at the Aussie Open Alexandr Dolgopolov’s father was there and he told Dad that  I had a great future in tennis. I am getting great practice every week with guys in the top 1000 ATP and feel like I am improving as I have beaten them in practice. 

I will keep you all posted.. Cheers Blake
