Re: Jan Hernych
The last post in this thread was a few years ago so now is the perfect time for an update on Jan's career the past few seasons.
Unfortunately, 2010 was a poor season for Jan, as his ranking fell out of the top 200 to a year-end #241. After winning the Jersey challenger, Jan won back-to-back matches at an event once more in the season.
After his struggles in 2010, Jan started 2011 very positively, qualifying at the Australian Open and defeating Istomin and Bellucci in the MD and reaching R3 for the first time. After the AO he moved up to #174 in the rankings, a gain of almost 70 places. His best results through the rest of the season was making the finals of Ortisei challenger in Italy in November, the SF of Shanghai challenger in September and qualifying and winning a match at Halle in June. He finished 2011 #168 in the world.
In 2012, Jan has a 9-4 record through March. His best result was winning the Sarajevo challenger in mid-March, his 8th career challenger title. He is currently ranked #191 overall. He tends to play a very spotty schedule these days so hopefully wherever his next event may be, he can perform well and build on his victory in Bosnia.
