Jiří Lehečka: I Must Forget About Paris

06.06.2023 14:57:55 | The top seeded Jiří Lehečka entered the UniCredit Czech Open in Prostějov with a 6:3, 6:4 win over Nick Hardt of the Dominican Republic. His opponent is ranked 222nd in the ATP. Certainly their duel was much tighter than their ranking numbers had suggested. Jiří Lehečka entered the match in style, but his opponent improved at from 5:0 and won three games in a row.

The match continued to be relatively close in the second set, but the Prostějov player advanced after winning 6:3, 6:4. "I had a really good start which was what actually decided the first set. In the second set I managed to get a break and finish the match. However, it wasn't quite ideal as the conditions got a bit worse as time went on and didn't help my game at all. Yet I won the match, let's move on," said Lehečka after advancing to the next round. The Prostějov player has already forgotten the disappointment over his early elimination at Roland Garros. "Of course I was disappointed by the defeat in the second round, but I left the disappointment behind. This is another tournament and another challenge," said the 22-year-old local tennis player. "I came to Prostějov with the notion that what happened in Paris should stay in Paris. I told myself that if I have a chance to play here, where I have been training since I was 15, I will try to grab it and do my best. I'm not just going to play here, I want to give steady performance and if I can do that, I can get far," Lehečka said.
