First MD for the 23-year old Estonian :yeah:
It's been about 20 years since the last Estonian male tennis player played in MD, so well done Jürgen! :bounce: :bounce:

Well done indeed, Zopp fought very hard in 1st set, came back twice from break down and then won the breaker.Key game of the match was second game of 2.set, where they played at least 15 points or so and where Zopp saved at least 4 breakpoints. After that Falla folded like a cheap tent. Falla is # 1 quali seed and maybe he has chance to get into main draw as lucky loser if someone from MD withdraws.

Nice one Jurgen. He got some good results in the Challenger tour in September and has carried that forward here. I think it aids him how Sweden is pretty close to Estonia.

Yeah, he probably prepared by taking the booze cruise ferry from Tallinn to Stockholm...

Good one Jurgen...now make some noise in MD too - these courts should suit your big game just fine

:clap2: Congratulations to our Northern neighbors! What a great result this is for Estonian tennis. Actually Zopp's whole year can be summarized as a great result to Estonian tennis, not only this particular result.

Still remember, how I was watching Zopp in Latvia's futures 3 years ago, when he lost in 1st round and was sitting in the stands with a rather sad look. At that point of time he seemed to me as a certain futures tournament level player for the rest of career, and I could have never imagined that he will achieve this much in future :) Hopefully he keeps progressing and breaks into top-100 soon :yeah:

Great work Zopp, has improved a lot this year and is backing up recent challenger success in ATP qualies. Great for Estonian tennis and hope he can enjoy himself in the MD and put in a good showing.

Next opponent Tomic. Tough draw, Ryderstedt or Robredo would have been lot better.
