Marton Fucsovics: From Qualification to the Final

03.06.2016 14:16:15 | Marton Fucsovics of Hungary reached the final from the qualification. He gradually defeated Krstin of Serbia 6:4, 2:0 (retired), Lama of Chile 2:6, 7:5, 6:4 in the second round, the top seed Berankis of Lithuania 6:4, 7:6(2) in the quarter-final, and Cervantes of Spain with ease 6:2, 6:2. “I was a little worried of the match. Cervantes is a top hundred player and Spaniards traditionally play very well on clay. Anyway, I celebrated the victory in the end. What do I think decided the match? I could rely on my serve, it never failed me once,“ said the first finalist after the match.

“I don’t think Cervantes showed his best performance here today. He told me he was slightly injured before the match. Moreover, he must have been really tired after his last match against Pavlásek. Of course, it was good for me. I’m glad I won in two sets and I’m looking forward to the final.“ Yours is a great story, you’ve made your way through from the qualification to the final... “It was not easy at all. I played Lama in the second round and he had a match point. Then, I started to play more spiritedly. I played my game, served well, and managed to win important points.“
