Re: Antonio Veic cheering thread

Antonio is in the QFs of the challenger in Poland this week! In the first round he beat Rusevski easily, 63 60. In the second round he upset the #8 seed, Montcourt, in straight sets, 61 76.

With that result, Antonio will break into the top 300. Right now he's #313 but will go up to around 285-290.

Antonio is still young. He turned 20 four months ago. It's looking more and more to me like he could become a top 100 player!

Go, Antonio. Good luck!

Re: Antonio Veic cheering thread

Antonio is playing impressively. He won again today, beating the #4 seed, Greul, easily, 63 64. In the semis he'll play Santos-Gonzalez. Antonio is ranked a little bit higher, so while it might not be easy, he has a good chance to make it into the final.

This is easily Antonio's best career result. In next week's rankings, he'll move well into the top 300, at around 270 (if he loses tomorrow).

Best of luck to Antonio, and congratulations so far.

Re: Antonio Veic cheering thread

Antonio has a new career-high ranking this week: #271. That's very impressive considering he started the year at #455. He's moving up fast!

Re: Antonio Veic cheering thread

He will play against Montcourt in the first round in Umag. They have played twice this year, both won one match but Antonio won the last one 6-1 7-6. Hopefully he can repeat it.

Re: Antonio Veic cheering thread

...unfortunately he lost.....for sure he has a lot of potential, it's just a question of time when he's gonna break into the top 100.....

“The amount of experience was not the deciding element. It was my too big desire to win. My tension was enormous, I played pourly, forcing the ball. I did not feel comfortable on the court and my opponent used that against me” – said after
the match Veic. He continued: “I dreamt I was playing him and believed in my victory since I did defeat him three weeks ago on the Challenger in Poland. It was a great opportunity to win, but I forced myself too much. I was looking to score after three groundstrokes, and that wasthe wrong tactic against such a player. I was too nervous, this being my first ATP tournament. Had it
not be so, I am positive the final result would have been different. Key moment of the match? At 3:3, 40:15 to my advantage, I was finally starting to feel the ball when I lost my serve. I fought back to equalise 4:4, when I lost my serve again.” explained Antonio.

Re: Antonio Veic cheering thread

Antonio won last week's $15K in Iran. He was the #2 seed and won his five matches without losing a single set. He picked up 18 points, which will move him back into the top 300 in next week's rankings (to around #285, from #314 currently).

This week he's playing in another $15K in Iran and is into the finals, again without losing a set. In the finals he plays Valery RUDNEV (RUS). If Antonio loses he'll move up to ~265-270 and if he wins, to ~260-265. Antonio beat Rudnev pretty easily last week in the QF so this is definitely winnable.

I also see that Antonio is on the entry list for next week's $15K in Dubai. Hopefully his winning streak will continue and he can move into the top 250.

Re: Antonio Veic cheering thread

Antonio is on the verge of breaking into the top 200! After reaching the finals of the Monza challenger this past week, he moved up to a new career-high ranking of #203. He's by now the sixth highest-ranked Croat, behind Cilic, Karlovic, Ancic, Ljubicic and Karanusic.

He has a lot of points to defend over the next 2-3 months, though, so hopefully his good form will hold up. This week he's playing the challenger in Rome. In R1 he plays the #8 seed, Alexandre Sidorenko (#155).
