Re: Erik Chvojka

This article has a bit of information on what Erik has been doing:

http://www.montrealgazette.com/sport...146/story.html

It also mentions that Pokrajac took two years off from tennis to finish a commerce degree at the University of Toronto. Doesn't say whether Pokrajac intends to get back full-time on the tour or not.

Re: Erik Chvojka

Chvojka pulled off a great win today beating #8 seed in Lexington, Amer Delic. Next round looks winnable either a French WC or American Nicholas Monroe.

Re: Erik Chvojka

Lexington, KY (July 18) – The men’s main draw just started late Monday afternoon and suddenly one of the most colorful players in Lexington Challenger history – Bosnian Amer Delic (’06 runner-up) was gone in a flash. Only there was no flash or dash in the game of the No. 8 seed, who fell to Canada’s Erik Chvojka 7-5, 7-6 (4). Tuesday’s first Big Blue Night feature (approx. 7:20) promises to have lots of sizzle – certainly in the stands – as Kentucky Wildcat star Eric Quigley faces Tennessee’s top returning Vol, Rhyne Williams, the ’11 NCAA runner-up.

Chvojka (it’s Czech, pronounced VOIKA) was well aware that Delic has been battling back up the ladder the last couple of years...and standing fairly still at No. 246. But, he also knew the 2003 NCAA champ (Illinois) had a big game that carried him to No. 60 in the world in ’07. “This is one of my very good wins...Delic’s still a big name,” said the Montreal native.

“I played solid enough and I knew I had to serve well, because (Delic) has a big one,” said Chvojka, who was especially pleased with tiebreaker service. “To get to that next level, I need to play more tournaments of this caliber...and play guys like Delic.” Chvojka previously has reached two semis at the $50K level, a pair of Challengers in Canada. To do that this week, he must beat the winner of Tuesday’s second evening feature between UK’s Alex Musialek and Nicholas Monroe. Probably looming in the quarter-finals would be top-seeded James Ward of Great Britain, who finished off France’s Mathieu Rodrigues 6-2, 6-2.

Re: Erik Chvojka

Too bad, what is up with Canadians and Rain Delays? I guess we just don't like them?

Re: Erik Chvojka

Chvojka is into the finals of Saskatoon (he beat Diez in three sets) and will face number 1 seed Vasek.Erik also won the doubles titles here.
