My last 3 Tournaments (Niteroi, Rio, Las Palmas)

The last 3 weeks were very hard, I played 3 big tournaments in a row. I started with the 3000$ in Niteroi (Brasil), where after 3 months I found my usual partner Nikita Burmakin. We had some though matches to reach the final, but unfortunalty we couldn't play until the end because our opponent Cramarossa had a little injury, so we won the first one.

My last 3 Tournaments (Niteroi, Rio, Las Palmas)

The last 3 weeks were very hard, I played 3 big tournaments in a row. I started with the 3000$ in Niteroi (Brasil), where after 3 months I found my usual partner Nikita Burmakin. We had some though matches to reach the final, but unfortunalty we couldn't play until the end because our opponent Cramarossa had a little injury, so we won the first one.


The second tournament and in my mind the most important was the Copacabana Open 15000$. I love tournament like that because there are so many people to watch us playing and the central court was simply amazing. I don't know what happen in me, but when there are situation like that I start to play much better, probably because I love to be in the middle of thousands eyes. We reached the final winning a very hard quarter against Garavini / Strano and then the SF against Calbucci Cappelletti (a re-final of Aruba), but this time we won with less drama, and at last we played the final against a new team and, for sure, the one with more shape in this period: Font-Baran. I was very ready before the final and so we started stronger then them and that was the key of the success. I think that with this victory Nikita and I show that we are a team that love big stages!


But sometime there is no time to celebrate and after a big victory i have to be ready for a new adventure, Canaria open 15000$. The stage is different, less people to watch, but a very important tournament too. That time I played with Cappelletti, we reached easily the QF and we managed to win against our big friends Alessi / Carli, so  we played the SF against the ex-team Cramarossa-Garavini,. We were in a big control, we were leading 6-4 4-3 40-15 and serve but after something broken and we lost the match, sometimes happen, this is the sport, for sure next time I'll be more ready for this kind of situation. Incredible that the final wasn't played for the dark, so become one of the first tournament in the history with no winners.
