Good to see Igor playing the challengers. Needs to get some wins and get his confidence up, way too good to be ranked outside the top 100. Keep going :hug:

Won again today, 6-4 6-7 6-3, a bit closer than it needed to be (wasted 4 match points in TB) but still, he won!

Hey everybody! Long time no see. How is everyone?

Igor playing challengers is smart. First of all, he needs to stick on clay because that's probably his only chances of winning. But also because he needs the points. If he wins this event he'll be back in the top 100.

He's played two good matches this week, good luck tomorrow v Kamke! Could be a tough one, he'll need to be on his A game.

Two more to go, Igor!

Kamke is a good player, and when Igor was down a break and set point(s) in the first set I thought it might be over quickly. But Igor came storming back and had a 4-1 lead in the tiebreak, which he unfortunately blew :rolleyes: But he played really well in the last two sets, and really overall it was a good match, he was aggressive and forceful, the way he needs to play. I had a sinking feeling he might choke the match away in that third set but he got it done after 4 match points.

A win is a win, unfortunately when you are as low on confidence as Igor has been, his weak mentality becomes even more of a problem. Against established ATP players he won't get away with that, but at least he got another win in the bag :)

Now he's up to #102 and if he wins his SF he'll be back in the top 100 next week. He's playing Frenchman Olivier Patience, good luck Igor!

Good luck in the final, Igor! It's gonna suck to see to faves going against each other :tears::boxing:

Igor is up to #98 with the win today! Back in the top 100, with only one more win the rest of the season to equal his points from last year. Hopefully this tournament is the start of big things.

well it seems that 6-1, 1-6, 2-6 finally woke him up last week

True, especially since he dominated Seppi in the H2H. He used to compete with guys like Seppi and be better than them. Now he's on the track to get back on that level. I'm guessing he was embarrassed to play the way he did and really buckled down, because he's much more enthused this week. Igor should be a level above Cuevas but we'll see what happens.

No words on the final. Just..........no.

But congrats to regaining a top 100 position, Igor. Hopefully he can continue to make a few deep runs to solidify a MD position in Australia by the end of the year.
