Not a problem with the pics and I thought they would come in handy for sure and he should finish within the top 100 this year and that means he will come down to the Aus Open and I will watch him for sure.

He has talent, but these results have come from nowhere, there always seems to be a few players like that. I wonder when he will go onto the main tour.

Lol... good discovery. I didn't know he had never played an ATP match.

I am curious to see how he fares in the bigger events, he'll surely get a direct entry at the US Open. Some players have been having troubles to make the transition from challengers to ATPs (e.g. Berlocq, Pashanski), just hope it's not the case with Hajek.

Jan started the season at 469 and is now in the 330s, if he keeps the form up, he should be able to make the low 200s at the end of the year, if he is fit.

He hasn't been playing Futures, he has been playing Challenger qualies and making many main draws. Best result this year was the recent semi final in Athens as a qualie, didn't lose a set until losing to Rui Machado in 3.

Jan qualified for Ostrava, took out Mayer and Mello both in straight sets.

Jan Hajek: I am unbelievably happy.

Jan Hajek from the Tennis Club AGROFERT Prostějov triumphed in the final of UniCredit Czech Open in Prostejov, the tournament subsidized with 127.500 EUR. He defeated the Belgian Steve Darcis 6:2, 1:6, 6:4.

Twenty-five year old Hajek won the tournament for the second time in three years. This year he was a great surprise of the tournament as he was neither seeded nor admitted directly to the main competition but had to fight his way up from qualification. In the history of the tournament there are only a few players to win the tournament twice: Czechs Radek Stepanek and Bohdan Ulichran, and Richard Fromberg form Australia.

Hajek entered the match very impressively. He broke Darcis’ serve twice and with five successful games in a row won the first set in less than 30 minutes. “I was nervous at the beginning, I did not sleep very well today, I was thinking this match over and over ...,” said Hajek at a press conference after the match.

But Darcis pulled himself together in the second set. He hit balls with increased force and accuracy and Hajek fell into depression. “I am sorry I missed the beginning of he second set, I should have had to push on my opponent more strongly. The situation from our match in Ostrava repeated. I was too passive and Steve was better in the second set,” added Hajek who went to the bathroom after the set to get refreshed a little bit. “I calmed down there and told myself this was going to be my last set at the tournament and I was resolved to win.”

The Czech player delivered completely different performance in the last set. He was more concentrated and won three games in a row. But the way to the championship was still to be a tortuous one. Darcis did not give up even at the score of 2:5, on the contrary, he diverted one match point when serving and than managed to break another Hajek’s serve. However, in the end Hajek managed to turn his fourth match point into the victory in the whole tournament.

This victory pushed Hajek to the world’s second hundred in ATP ranking but not to the qualification in Wimbledon and he will have to go on at challengers on clay. His futures plans include participation at the tournaments in Kosice and Bytom in Poland.

How he evaluated the tennis week in Prostejov?
“It was great, I won eight matches. Each match was a great battle. It started with a duel against Robin Vik and finished today in the final. I am very happy I kept the shape throughout the whole tournament and unbelievably happy I managed to triumphed in the end.”

Yes, that's true, he has the chance of playing a dead rubber or replace one of Tomas or Radek if any of them is injured (that hopefully won't happen).

Jan had an up and down season, and only won 8 matches (one being a D.C. match) after May, but he did enough this season to finish in the top 100, and for the first time in his career, finish consecutive seasons within the top 100 in the world. Jan struggled with a 4-12 ATP record off clay, but did finish 9-9 on his favorite surface, a good step in the right direction. He also won, which is undoubtedly his favorite event, the Prostejov challenger, for the third time and second straight season.

Next season, Jan will want to establish himself as a good second tier clay courter, and try to win a few more hard court matches. After his heart and knee issues, many would have written him off, so it's great to see him even playing. Now, hopefully he can have some continued good fortune and some better performance in 2011 :)

Unfortunately for Jan, after his good run through the summer in challengers, a combination of bad draws and injury issues kept him from building on his good form and he failed to regain his top 100 place at the end of the season, finishing 2011 at #141 in the world. His best result after his F-SF-SF run in challengers were two SFs in Brasov and Trnava challengers.

2012 has started the way 2011 ended, with a 6-7 record, his best result being a SF at Meknes challenger. He has lost a lot of close matches this year and is now currently injured, retiring from his last match in Casablanca due to a neck/back injury and has not returned. Hopefully he is able to return soon, as he has had to withdraw from this week's event in Barletta as well. Injuries have taken their toll on Jan but when he's healthy he has shown he can still win matches consistently at the challenger level. GL to Jan in future tournaments!
