It's time this really talented young lefty gets his own thread.
Watched him win the Australian Open juniors and I was really impressed. He has been playing some futures and challengers lately and is doing well.

In the quarter-finals of the Czech Republic futures against another '93 kid, Filip Horansky. He looks to be progressing quite nicely. I expect he'll play the junior grand slams, and then other then that, focus on futures.

Into the finals of the futures now, he has 2 points to defend at that tournament, so he'll go up to around 724, and if he wins the tournament, he'll move to around 660.

That's exactly his plan. He said in an interview that he wants to play Futures and Challengers for the rest of the year and only play Slams in juniors. He also said he doesn't want to waste time and wants to build respect among seniors quickly. His plan is to break into Top 100 within 2 years.

He's won his first Futures last week so he's been doing well so far. His new rank is 648 and that doesn't include QF points from this week's Futures. I hope he keeps on progressing because Czech tennis is otherwise dying.

Lost in the finals of the US Open Juniors to Golding in a tough three setter. Too bad but a good tournament, nonetheless.

This should be a big year for Jiri.

Jiri opened up the season winning his second career futures title in Shenzhen, China over Krajicek in the final. Unfortunately, he has only won one match since; he retired in his last event in the second round and has a 6-5 record this season. He's currently ranked #503 in the world.

GL to Jiri in future events, hopefully he will continue to progress, can remain healthy, and get better as he gains more experience and grows into his body and game.

Two Futures wins in a row for Jiri, only one set dropped. Seems like he has grown out of these tournaments. He must make a move to Challengers now.

any idea on his next tournaments? ITF page says that he has withdrawn from the third Israel Future. somehow it's "funny" that he seems to still not be able to directly enter the MD of a challenger... the cut is too good for the challengers starting next week. the cut for bergamo (week 6) is #229 as of right now, and he also is not in the list of alternatives, which leads me to the conclusion that he also won't play qualies.

all in all he looks really really promising. he may be the best from the 1993 generation. i hope he can start showing off in challenger-level this year. maybe also first ATP win? i dont think he has one, yet.

Probably will get to play a dead rubber if the Czechs go up 3-0. I think this will be the push he needs to make his jump into the top 200.

He seems like a very impressive young player and a player to watch in the future. I'm predicting that he will play on the main ATP tour by the end of this year and top 100 as well

Quite interesting and cool to note he has never taken or asked for a WC into an ATP event, that is until now at Umag.

not disappointing i would say. a bit maybe. but AHM is in good condition in the last weeks. 2 challenger titles in july!
but yes, vesely had a great chance for his first ATP win, if i am correct?! so he still has to wait for that..

Jiri Vesely

INDIAN WELLS, CALIFORNIA

A. MURRAY/J. Vesely
6‑7, 6‑4, 6‑4




THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Do you have regrets?
JIRI VESELY: Well, you know, it was a very hard match. I feel right now physically very tired. Of course it hurts.

Q. Is there anything you would like to change?
JIRI VESELY: For sure I would like to make the game balls that I had in the second and also in the third set, but I was a break up and I was in the second set leading 40‑15 on my serve and the third set I had advantage.
Maybe if I would use one of these chances maybe I would finish the match. But, you know, Andy is just a big fighter and he's guy top 10 which deserves to win.
So, yeah, just need to take all the positive things from the match and try to keep working hard on myself.

Q. Do you feel like you got tired as you went along and that maybe affected you?
JIRI VESELY: I would say it was two things together. The one thing was physically. It was physically very long match, of course, very hard; also mentally it was very hard to control the match, you know, because I thought that I had the chance to beat Andy today maybe.
So it was mentally very, very hard to stay focused and to going point by point. Yeah, I think the third set in the end I got the cramps physically but also because of the mental side, that I was very, very tight.

Q. From the inside of the court, what did you see from Murray? Did you think he was having an off day or wasn't 100% physically?
JIRI VESELY: Well, the match started pretty bad from my side. I did a lot of unforced errors, so I needed to play some good tennis.
Then at 3‑Love I broke him and I just got a little bit more confident and start to play my game. I really think that he didn't like my game, because we were playing kind of like similar game.
So he just had to go for the shots, and I think that it's not something he really likes. But of course he coped with it better than me, and he deserved to win.

Q. When you play a top 10 like him and you play such a tough match, do you feel like you're close in level? How does that make you feel?
JIRI VESELY: Well, last year when I was practicing with Andy at the US Open I really was nervous before the practice because I didn't want to miss many balls so that he is having a good hit with me. And today there was totally different story. I went to the match of course to win the match, because otherwise you don't need to go out there.
Well, he's a top 10 guy, so it's a very special game or special match for me because I don't still have so many experience with these guys. So it was a special match for me, and I really have to take all of the positives out of the match.

Q. Did you feel that you had really in the crucial moments a self‑belief to seize control of the match, or did you still find yourself struggling with some doubts?
JIRI VESELY: I was really struggling with myself. I mean, after I won the first set, which was really exciting for me, and getting the early break in the second set, I just felt really chance to beat this guy until 4‑2 in both sets, second and third, I was playing good without any mistakes.
But then I always got a little bit tight, and I just felt the chance that I really can beat him. I think that was maybe the one thing that was painful then in the end.

Q. You seemed to have some fun. You missed some overheads but when you made one you put your arms up and the crowd really liked that.
JIRI VESELY: Well, it was pretty hard to make the smash because you don't have exactly point where you can focus on because the sky is just blue, you know, (smiling).
He hit the ball really high, and I just felt of course the chance to make the smash. Unfortunately I didn't. Maybe also it was one of the small things that decided the match, because I think I missed one smash at 40‑30 or 40‑15 in the second set and I think it was 4‑3.
So I really have to take out all the mistakes I did and try to work on myself harder and harder.

Q. Are you playing Davis Cup against Japan?
JIRI VESELY: I don't know if the nomination is done yet, but I hope I will be ‑‑

Q. Tomas and Radek?
JIRI VESELY: Tomas is not playing. He announced two weeks ago I think.
Radek is going to be on the team for sure, and the rest is of course on the team captain who he will choose into the team. But of course I think this is another very good experience for me and that I really have the chance or that I'm really able to play with the good guys, and it really can improve my game in the future.
