Re: The new kid on the block : Victor Crivoi

Tell me about it! He really can do with a couple of points right now, especially if players like Bellucci or Beck start winning tournaments ...
He already lost once to Luczak in 2007 and guess what ... it was on clay !!!
But I think, Victor is stronger now, especially after this semi-final at Gstaad, he's got some confidence
We'll see ...

Re: The new kid on the block : Victor Crivoi

Luczak has loads of experience; he's one of the best claycourt Challenger players. I think Victor, despite the QF (not SF) in Gstaad, will be the underdog. Luczak is coming from a final in Tampere and with commanding wins over Schukin and Florian Mayer is looking very good.

Anyways, Victor has a shot, but I am not expecting him to win. I hope he does, though, of course

Re: The new kid on the block : Victor Crivoi

Unfortunately, you were right, he lost in 3 sets, I can't believe he lost the match after winning the 2nd set 6-0 !!!

Anyway, Crivoi stays in Italy, he'll be in another challenger (but this time, he's seeded 4).
He'll be playing in the 1st round : Brian Dabul (never heard of him, so I guess it's gonna be ok )

http://www.euro-sporting.it/challenger/

it's another tournament in Europe and AGAIN on clay , I don't know why he doesn't try to get to the big tournaments of the major atp tour , I mean the US Open is round the corner, and he hasn't played a single official match on a hard surface, I hope he's gonna soon move to the US and train for the US Open with the big players ...

Re: The new kid on the block : Victor Crivoi

I found a video interview of Crivoi, in which he says that he's a Federer fan
I didn't understand the whole interview but basically he explains why he chose tennis, he talks about his training routine, and why he's a fan of Roger.

http://www.realitatea.net/video_8477...er_552192.html

I might be wrong, like I said, I don't speak a word of Romanian, but luckily for me, it's a latin language like French, so I can guess most of it ...
By the way if someone can translate even roughly what he says that would be lovely

TRANSLATION:
- Why did you choose tennis?
- I choose to play tennis because it's a nice, clean sport and the people that work in the tennis industry are very special and have a nice personality.
- How often do you train?
- 2 or 3 times / day. If I'm playing in a tournament I train more to maintain my fitness and I am not involved in a tournament I train three times / day.
- What is your model in tennis?
- I am a Roger Federer fan but now I'm starting too see him more like an opponent, not like a idol, because I might play against him someday.

Re: The new kid on the block : Victor Crivoi

Thanks a lot !!!
Well I did understand a bit, I guess,I can go to Romania this summer then, ha ha ...

I don't think Victor's playing this week. (maybe, at last, he decided to go to the US, to train on hard before the US Open !!!)

By the way, did you know that he's got Russian origins ?!!
I read that here:
