Re: Denis Istomin

Denis gave an interview yesterday

Uzbekistan's No.1 player Denis Istomin has had a splendid run this year from being ranked 120 in October 2008 and reaching the career best ranking of 57 in October 2009. Istomin has also carved out some memorable wins this year. He is just back from a successful European sojourn winning a doubles in Belgium.

In spite of being down with viral fever for the past couple of days, Istomin took on the courts for his fans and did not let them down scoring a three set win over Yuri Schukin .The media team met up with Istomin

Q. The match today looked quite tough from the very beginning?
Istomin: "I'm relieved to have come through. I'm not in my best physical condition and have had fever for the past couple of days. Schukin put me in pressure from the beginning and also won the first set. But I decided not to give up . Also he relaxed in the second set and started making mistakes, I knew it was my chance to come back and I decided to give everything I had.

Q. What about your next round, have you given it a thought?
Istomin : My next opponent Stakhovsky is not an easy opponent we have played some very close matches before . But I hope that I can relax and be fit for tomorrow's match. It will be tough match for me and I have to recover .

Q. You've had a very good year , and have been in the top 100 all season , where you look at self at the end of the year?
Istomin : Yes, I have had good year and have made lots of points, I have been traveling and playing a lot . For the last 3-4 months, I've played some very good and close matches against big players, this has helped me. Also winning a few events on the way has been a bonus. I have to worry about moving into the top 50 this year and maintaining myself there.

Q. What drawbacks have you experienced playing at the high level of tennis ?
Istomin : I have been a main draw player at all the major grand slams , this year and that was the first goal . Now that I'm there I need to get higher and play the ATP Tour events. This year I played many top guys , but I need more experience and big wins at Bigger events , this will help my confidence and will help me to be better player and produce some good results .

Q. You have a lot of fans, and they want you to win every match, do you feel the pressure?
Istomin : Smiles, I'm not under pressure at all , I want to go out and play well and win every match. The event is tough and there are a lot of good players this year. But sure I'm going to give it my best try.

Re: Denis Istomin

His results of the last weeks
Unfortunately he lost the final of Tashkent Challenger against Baghdatis in three sets but Marcos seems to be in good form again!
In Moscow he had to withdraw in the first round
But this week he plays the Atp Tournament in St. Petersburg and won the first round against Schüttler 6:4 6:4
Do some more damage here Denis!
