Re: Karen Khachanov

Nice word by Tispy too Karen after their match & other tweets

Quote:
Khachanov, 17, upsets TIpsarevic in Moscow to reach the quarters. Janko tells him at the net: "Go all the way, you're a great player."
Quote:
@SvetlanaK27 Karen Khachanov, 17 yo, is serving for the match vs Tipsarevic in Moscow. Already 14 aces. Ok, who's that kid ?!”he is great
Quote:
Khachanov represents just the 2nd ATP QF reached by a teen this year. Compare that to total of 25 QFs by 10 different WTA teens in 2013.

Re: Karen Khachanov

Khachanov Upsets Tipsarevic in Moscow



Quote:
With the well-documented aging of the tour, any time a teenager picks up a victory in an ATP tournament, attention will be paid. Seventeen-year-old Russian Karen Khachanov, the 2013 European 18-and-under champion, has had a few of those wins late, beating ATP No. 63 Victor Hanescu of Romania in St. Petersburg last month, and defeating
No. 72 Albert Ramos of Spain in the first round of the Moscow ATP 250 this week. Today, the ATP No. 808, who lost to Kalamazoo 18s champion Collin Altamirano 6-4, 6-4 in the second round of the US Open Junior Championships last month, broke into the mainstream tennis consciousness with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over No. 3 seed and ATP No. 27 Janko Tipsarevic to reach the quarterfinals. According to ATP stats guru Greg Sharko, Khachanov is the first 17-year-old to reach an ATP quarterfinal since Kei Nishikori of Japan did it in Indianapolis in 2007.

Re: Karen Khachanov

World No 808 stuns Tipsarevic in Moscow

Teenage wildcard Karen Khachanov shocked third seed Janko Tipsarevic in straight sets to become the youngest quarter-finalist of the ATP Tour season at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow.



Quote:
Khachanov, 17, did not face a single break point as he picked apart the Serbian - who appeared to struggle with an injury - to earn a 6-4 6-4 win in just 77 minutes.

The little-known Russian was ranked 808th in the world prior to the tournament with his only title of note coming at the European Junior Championships in July when he dropped just one set in six matches.

The world junior number 19 reeled off 14 aces against the Serb, who was ranked eight in the world last season but has suffered from illness and injury and is currently ranked 27th.

"I heard Tipsarevic is injured, and I saw it at the beginning of the match," Khachanov said afterwards. "And the rhythm of the play was absent, so it was hard.

"He was trying to get winners from the first ball. My serve saved me. Of course, he wasn’t in his best shape, so this is why I wasn’t too happy at the end.

"After the match I asked him if he remembered me as we hit together during the Kremlin Cup two years ago, when he won it. He answered: 'Yes, of course. Congratulations, you’re playing so well'."

Eurosport Russia commentator Alexander Kalivod described Khachanov as "a Russian Del Potro, with great serves and forehand".

While Khachanov does not have overly impressive junior results apart from his aforementioned continental title, he beat Romanian star Victor Hanescu in the first round at St Petersburg last month.

Defending champion Andreas Seppi – the number two seed – strolled past Paolo Lorenzi in an all-Italian affair 6-3 6-2 to set up a quarter-final match with Edouard Roger-Vasselin who beat Sergiy Stakhovsky 7-5 7-5.

Qualifier Andrey Golubev was the last man to book a last eight spot on Wednesday, overcoming sixth seed Horacio Zeballos 6-3 6-4.

Re: Karen Khachanov

Kids got game. Most impressive thing is not facing a single break point against a seasoned top player like Tipsy.
