Re: Laurynas Grigelis (LTU)

Vamos Grigio !!!


Hope it gives him more confidence , not a bad draw in Cherbourg, the most dangerous player that remains in the qualies I think is Marchenko, but Laurynas can beat him. The it could be the rematch against Kudryavtsev who defeated Laurynas in Bergamo 36 61 64

Great idea to put the links to players profiles , Grigio won't play today against Renavand so it will be tomorrow.

With Wolfsburg title in doubles he jumped from 592 to 372 in the rankings

Re: Laurynas Grigelis (LTU)

L. Grigelis hopes to taste the bear he got in Germany while celebrating his successful performance in France

"Uladzimir and I understand each other very well on court, we both feel what anotherone is going to do. I think that this is our strength" - said Laurynas after winning his first doubles title in challenger tournament.

Lithuanian started Wolfsburg challenger with first round loss in singles. World number 203 L.Grigelis 3-6, 5-7 lost to the eventual champion 24 year old dutch Igor Sijsling.

"I think that I played a good match but unfortunately I lost. I had a chance in the first set when the result was 3-2 and I was serving but I didn't take advantage of it" - Laurynas said with a pity.

L.Grigelis and U.Ignatik were the best team in the doubles draw. In the final match 20 year old Lithuanian and 21 year old Belarusian, after an hour and a half fight, defeated the third seeded team of Pole Tomasz Bendarek and Frenchman Olivier Charroin.

"In final we played very well but also it was the most difficult match. Our opponents were very strong - in the doubles ranking T.Bendarek is world number 140 and O.Chairron is world number 99. It was really tough match" - said L.Grigelis.

Lithuanian got 80 ATP points and jumped from 592 possition to 372, which is his career high. U.Ignatikas raised from 236 place to 187.

"In the past I played not so many doubles matches, singles was always my priority. But now, since I succeeded here I will play more doubles matches. Sometimes it's fun to play in a team" - said Laurynas

L.Grigelis and U.Ignatik already played together several times and they are planing to play together again in tournament in Great Britain three weeks later. [This article was written before they got into the doubles draw in Cherbourg. IMO, tournament in great Britain is Bath Challenger]

"we know each other well and we are on good terms. Last summer we played together in some tournaments in USA, we both liked it so we arranged to play together in Germany. We also have some plans for the future tournaments" - said L.Grigelis about playing with U.Ignatik.

Together with 80 ATP points and 1900 euros L.Grigelis and U.Ignatik got an a bit unusual gift - each of them got a bottle of German bear.

"Two liters" - Laurynas was laughing about it.

So far Lithuanian haven't tried the bear. Right after the final tennis player left for the next challenger in France.

"1100 km road was waiting for me which I had to drive myself, so I had no time to celebrate. I hope that I'll have a good performance in France and then I'll taste that German bear." - said Laurynas.

Sorry, It's not the best translation, but I don't want to spend too much time on it
