Re: Laurynas Grigelis (LTU)
Well, my english and italian skills aren't very good, but I translated some parts of the interview, hope it be understandable:
"After playing ATP Los Angeles I wanted to stay in USA trying to play as matches as possible before play US Open qualies, but I strained a muscle and had to stop playing, so we decided to come back to Italy. Finally I just can train 2 or 3 days before travel to USA"
(Answering about his training with Ljubicic) "It was the first time I played with a player who was Top 3, it's the best memory the tournament leave to me. I'll remeber it for the rest of my life.
(About his expectations for the tournament) "Before Aptos It wasn't even planned to play USO, so I hadn't big expectations. All I wanted was playing well, and if could do this the results would come"
(About the match against Gensse) "The match was decided in few points and I lost them. Maybe if I won first set the things would have been different"
(About his rankings goals) "The goal for the end of the year was to reach 250-280 so I could play AO qualies in january 2012. We reached this, so the goal for the rest of the year is to continue climbing in the rankings and have consistence, keep fighting with players in Top 200 in 2 o 3 tournaments in a row, if I can do this the grow in the ranking will be a consecuence"
(About his schedule for the end of the year) "This week St Remy, then Italia Future in Sardegna (he explains they decided this by 2 reasons, he won't get direct entry to Istanbul CH, and also he and the team wants to know if he can confirm the progress made in Challengers in a tournament with less level), and after that Izmir CH. Then we'll see, there are a lot of options, qualies in Europe indoors, Asia, or USA Challengers. It will depend a lot on the entry lists"
