Troicki wins Sydney 2015 title

Troicki wins Sydney 2015 title

Viktor Troicki defeated a 6-2, 6-3 Mikhail Kukushkin to win the Apia International Sydney 2015 title.

He won $80,000 and 250 ATP Rankings points and also fired 13 aces and won 73 per cent of his service points, breaking Kukushkin four times from five opportunities.

"There are a lot of emotions actually," said Troicki. "It's been a tough road, a lot of work, and it paid off with a nice title. If I look back to where I was five, six months ago, it's amazing to have a title already. So it's a really nice moment for me and for all my team. It's very emotional.

"I've got to say I have been working harder than ever probably, and I feel very, very fit," added the Serb. "I didn't have any problems. I had eight matches here and luckily I haven't had problems. I feel very fresh again. I feel I can go again good on Monday. Definitely I was working hard and that's paying off. I have inside myself trust in my body, and I feel I can do a lot of things."

Kukushkin Ends Del Potro's Sydney Run

Mikhail Kukushkin beat Juan Martin del Potro 76 76 in the quarterfinals of the Apia International Sydney.

"When you play six matches in a row at one tournament, you start to get some confidence," said Kukushkin. "It's very, very important, especially at the beginning of the year when you had [a] two month off season, no competition, no matches. I'm pretty happy to have so many wins here in Sydney."

"It was a tough match," said del Potro. "I think he deserved to win because he played better than me in the tie-break. I served well, but my wrist hurts a little bit more than yesterday, and I couldn't hit harder than my last match. I think anyway it's a great week for me. I played three matches in a row and I played against good players, which means a good comeback for me."

In the semifinal, Kukushkin plays Leonardo Mayer, who beat Julien Benneteau.

Del Potro upsets Fognini in Sydney

Juan Martin del Potro defeat top seed Fabio Fognini 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 in the second round at the Apia International Sydney.

"I thought I played better," said del Potro. "I felt better on the court, especially at the end of the match. I served well, I hit good forehands and my backhands improved from yesterday… I need to keep playing with these guys, hitting the ball as fast I can, and keep trying.

"My wrist is the same. It's not getting worse, so I have confidence with that. Of course, I'm very happy to beat my first top 20 player on the year."

Del Potro grew stronger through the match after receiving treatment on his wrist from the trainer in the opening set, and he looked close to his best form in the deciding set to eliminate Fognini.

Del Potro is back, wins opener in Sydney

Juan Martin del Potro, the defending champion, beat Sergiy Stakhovsky 6-3, 7-6(4) in the first round of the Apia International Sydney.

Del Potro, ranked 338th after 11 month out of the courts, broke early to go up 3-1, proceeding to close out the first set 6-3.

Stakhovsky forced a tie-break in the second, but Juan Martin was able to close out the match in one hour, 21 minutes.

The former US Open champ delayed his comeback a week after pulling out of the Brisbane International tournament with residual pain in his wrist. But he looked unimpeded against Stakhovsky on Tuesday as he served seven aces and never faced a break point.

He will next face top seed Fabio Fognini.

Photo: Del Potro on his way to Sydney

Juan Martin del Potro will return to the ATP Tour in Sydney, where he is the defending champion, after almost a year and he was spotted at the airport...

“I missed the tour, I missed to compete. Those feelings outweigh the pain in the wrist, which comes and goes and prevented me from having the ideal pre-season training,” he explained.

“I don’t expect great results. At this point I don’t care about the rankings. I take it as a reward for the effort that I put to return.”

Wishing Juan Martin All the best!!!

Del Potro to play Sydney and Australian Open

Del Potro to play Sydney and Australian Open

Juan Martin del Potro just announced on his Facebook page that he will traavel to Sydney and the Australian Open :)

Hello everyone!!! I wanted to tell you that we decided to travel to play Sydney and the Australian Open. I missed the tour, I missed to compete, I missed interacting with you on court and those feelings outweigh the pain in the wrist, which comes and goes and prevented me from having the ideal pre-season training.

I don’t expect great results, I just want to feel the competition, I want to feel an active player once again, nearly a year after my last match. At this point I don’t care about the rankings. The situation is different. I take it as a reward for the effort that I put to come back.

The experience of my previous injury will help me so as not to be too anxious. I follow what my doctor Richard Berger says. I have to be patient.

As I wrote in a previous post, thanks for your support on my way back! You know that without your love, my will, the support of my team, my family and friends, this would not be possible.

See you in Australia!

Loving this news :)
