Zsombor has only played two Junior Grand Slam main draws so far in his career. This Australian Open and last year's Australian Open. Last year as a qualifier he lost to Tsitsipas 4-6 5-7 in the main draw first round. Little did I know when I was watching that match last year that I would be watching next year's winner!
 


Zsombi's Path
R1 d. Nijboer (NED), 6-1 6-3
R2 d. Nkomba (AUS)[Q], 6-3 6-3
R3 d. Hsu (TPE)[2], 6-3 6-2
QF d. Martineau (FRA), 6-1 6-2
SF d. Moutet (FRA)[5], 6-3 6-4
F d. Oliel (ISR)[4], 4-6 6-4 6-3
His draw mostly stayed intact and he had to beat Moutet who had defeated him the week before in the Traralgon final. An awesome effort by Zsombi







Poor Yshai was too distraught at the end to say anything during his runner-up speech...


Hopefully they both make the Top 100 someday

Re: Zsombor Piros

Piros fights his way to boys’ crown

Hungarian 16-year-old comes from a set down to defeat Yshai Oliel in boys’ decider.

By Val Febbo | 28 January, 2017

Hungarian 16-year-old Zsombor Piros has captured his maiden junior Grand Slam title, fighting from a set down to defeat Israeli Yshai Oliel 4-6 6-4 6-3 in the Australian Open 2017 boys’ final on Saturday.

It was the first meeting between the pair, who conquered the top two seeds in the draw. Oliel defeated top seed Yibing Wu 6-4 3-6 6-2 in the semifinals, while Piros was able to account for second seed Yu Hsiou Hsu 6-3 6-2 in the third round.

The first set began with Piros claiming the opening break in the second game before Oliel was able to reclaim it, before taking control of the momentum to break the Hungarian’s serve again and claim the set, edging one step closer to singles success at a junior Grand Slam.

Piros was elated that he was able to regroup after the first set, saying that his belief was shaken after being up a break and being overrun.

"I was be honest. After the first set, I lost my believe a little bit," he said.

"So, yeah. It was my first one, first main draw won in the Grand Slam. I still surprise myself with this win."

The second began on shaky terms for Oliel, as he was again broken early by the Hungarian, who was able to run the fourth seed around the court in an effort to wrestle the momentum back.

It looked as though Piros may have succeeded when he raced to a 5-2 lead in the set, only to have that advantage quickly eroded as Oliel got back on serve at 4-5. However, Piros was able to break serve and clinch a hard-fought set to force the championship into a decider.

The final stanza began with both players showing maturity beyond their years, repeatedly holding serve and placing large amounts of pressure on each other.

However, in the sixth game, the Hungarian was able to break after an epic effort. The Oliel service game went for over five minutes, and Piros was able to fend off game points before converting his second break point.

Piros puts his win down to being the better defensive player on the day, admitting that Oliel came up with the better shots. He also said the sixth game of the final set was his best returning game.

"I don't play good shots. I think today he was better. I will be honest. He was the attacker like most the time. I was the defender a few times," he said.

"He missed that, I think. I tried to do pressure on him and make good returns. I think that was my best return game.

"I think he just realised that I'm closer to the win, and that's why he just thinking about that. I think he was nervous."

Piros was able to run away with the set to claim the victory in only his second main draw at a junior Slam.
