Lu defeated Luczak 6-3 6-1 and too bad he couldn't defend his title, just hope he can build for the future.

Relaxed Luczak chases title

12.11.2006

BY JON TUXWORTH

DEFENDING Caloundra ATP Challenger champion Peter Luczak was Australia’s feel-good story of the Australian Tennis Open in January this year.

We cheered when he beat highly-fancied Belgian Olivier Rochus in the second round. We cheered when he took a set off German Tommy Haas in the third round.

“Every match was great,” Luczak reflects. “In the second match against Rochus I had a section of the crowd made up of the fanatics, and at every change of ends I’d watch what they were doing. It kept me relaxed.”

Ten months on, the 27-year-old is just feeling good. He has married his Swedish sweetheart Katarina and is a devoted father to five-month-old son Sebastian.

“It’s been great, I wake up each morning with a big smile on my face when I see the little guy,” he said.

While the start of the year was highly successful on court for Luczak, things didn’t quite go to plan the last five months overseas. He hopes to make amends by retaining his title at the Caloundra tournament, which begins tomorrow.

“I’ve been away from Australia all year, so it’s nice to come back and feel at home. I like the courts here at Caloundra and the tournament’s run great. It almost feels like a holiday.”

The world number 187 is under no illusions about the task that awaits him this week to retain his title, with the draw including eight of the top ten Australians.

He has prepared by spending the last two weeks relaxing in his hometown of Melbourne and running the sand dunes near his sister’s beach house.

While his personal life has undergone some major changes, so too has his appearance. The trademark ponytail that was his signature at the Aussie Open has been ditched for a more responsible-looking ‘do.

“I got my hair cut when the little guy came. I thought it’s enough of the long hair, it’s time to be a dad now, so it got the chop,” he grinned.

In the first day of qualifying yesterday, Caloundra’s Marc Kimmich accounted for Joel Lindner 6-1 7-6 (6), while Kawana’s Sean Fyfe went down to American Phil Stolt 6-2 6-4.

Two visits, two wins for Lu at Caloundra

20.11.2006

By PAUL MUNNINGS
WITH his mum watching on, Chinese Taipei's Yen-Hsun Lu yesterday continued his love affair with Caloundra by winning the Kia International Challenger title for the second time.

Yet to lose a singles match at the Caloundra Tennis Club, Lu breezed past crowd favourite Peter Luczak 6-3 6-1 in 64 minutes to enhance his chances of a quick move back into the top 100 in the world – a place he occupied just six months ago.

Now ranked 122nd, and the second seed for the first leg of the Sunshine Coast Challenger double, Lu reeled off six games straight in the second set to end Luczak’s title defence.

The 23-year-old was victorious at Caloundra in 2004 but didn't play last year's event due to injury.

"I played one of my best matches for the year today," Lu said.

"For sure, this is the best tournament in my life because I've won two times."

While most of the capacity Caloundra crowd would have liked a repeat Luczak victory, Lu had his mum on his side.

She rarely travels to watch her son play, but went with him to Korea earlier this month and is with him for his two-week stay on the Sunshine Coast.

"She's a little bit tired," joked Lu, who is known to his English-speaking ATP Tour mates as "Randy".

"Next year she might not have too much time to travel."

The travel won't be an issue this week with Lu again the No.2 seed for the Kawana Challenger tournament, with Thailand's Danai Udomchoke, who is up to a career-high ranking of No.80, the top seed.

Australian Davis Cup squad members Wayne Arthurs and Chris Guccione have withdrawn from the Kawana event, which starts today, with both citing injury.

Luczak (No.7) and Caloundra quarter-finalist Nathan Healey (No.5) will be the seeded Australians.

After missing out in yesterday's final, Luczak was heading for the beach and some much-needed rest.

The key moments in his defeat came early in the second set when the 27-year-old from Melbourne couldn’t convert two break points to take a 2-1 lead, smacking both returns into the net, and then was broken to love in his service next game.

"It's always disappointing to play a final and get killed like that," Luczak said.

"I tried everything I could but he was hitting the ball so good and so cleanly.

"Next week is my last tournament of the year so I'll be trying to make it a good one hopefully."

Long, hard road to the top in tennis
January 14, 2006

While the top-ranked players live in opulence, for others on the way up life is darkened by cheap hotels, tortuous bus rides and cheap air fares. World No. 144 Peter Luczak tells what it takes to make it to the professional tennis circuit.

NO. 144 is not a stratospheric world ranking, but it does mean that Peter Luczak qualifies for more comfortable digs when he dances around a tennis court. It was not always so.

The life of a tennis journeyman is one darkened by cheap hotels, tortuous bus rides and — if he hits the jackpot — a cheap air fare as he takes his first, tentative steps on the pro circuit. Luczak remembers his first six months on the satellite tennis circuit during a break from college in the United States — where he had a tennis scholarship.

Small towns were a speciality and there was a bonus if you got a billet with a local family. Redding, California; Joplin, Missouri; Waco, Texas. "Yes, they have a tournament there," he says. "I think it was quite well run.

"You'd get a little bit scared when you'd come in at night to those towns, though. The Greyhound bus stations always used to be in the ghetto area. I remember one place called the Nash Hotel. It was a nightmare, pretty much everyone in there was a drug addict."

Scoring a bed for the night could turn out to be as competitive as playing a tennis match. "About five or six guys usually shared a room. At night we'd do the rock, paper scissors to see who would get a bed.

"The rules were, if you won (the tennis) that day you qualified to play. If you lost that day, you were automatically sleeping on the floor — you could not even qualify for the rock, paper, scissors game."

Five years on, Luczak, who has a wildcard to play in the Australian Open next week, is in more salubrious quarters. It's not five-star, but he is renting a comfortable apartment in Richmond with his friend, Stephen Huss, the doubles specialist who won an unlikely Wimbledon title last year.

At 26, Luczak has yet to win any titles. He achieved his best result in February last year, reaching the semi-final in an Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) tour event in Brazil. For that he achieved a lofty ranking of 110.

"That was great — I was on top of the world," Luczak says. "Every year, I've slowly got better. At the end of 2003, I was 170. Then in 2004, I was about 150. At the start I made bigger leaps. Now, I'm slightly improving my rankings … My goal is to be in the top 100 this year."

Twenty-six. For many people, that's the age you are getting started. Finished university, first serious job. More than a few of your peers are probably still living at home — you are part of a famously postponed generation.

At 26 on the tennis circuit, you are entering the mature phase of your career. Almost an old man of tennis: make or break time. World No. 1 Roger Federer is 25. Australian Lleyton Hewitt is 24. American Andy Roddick is 23. "I am a late bloomer," says Luczak, who started out hitting nets down the street in suburban Mulgrave, where he grew up.

Luczak's route was the familiar Aussie one: McDonald's Cup, the state junior squad in his early teens … Then he flunked out. Dropped from the state team before his mid-teens after a slump.

He was sustained, however, by supportive parents — the opposite of the pushy, tennis-parent kind, he says. His parents, Eva and Kris, left Warsaw in 1980 when he was nine months old. They were determined to give their children every opportunity, even if that meant his mother had to work for a time as cleaner in a city hotel and his father, an engineer, took a job as a courier driver. "Dad was always driving me to tournaments and encouraging me, but if I didn't want to play he was fine. Both my parents were pretty sporty. My older sister and I were pretty competitive with each other, and we'd go and play tennis after school."

An inner calm, perhaps modelled on his childhood tennis hero Mats Wilander, also helped shape Luczak's attitudes to life and sport. Early failure was not a setback. "I just loved the way Wilander played. He was always very calm on the court. I just liked his attitude."

His Swedish partner, Katarina, is expecting their first child and he is feeling buoyant as he approaches another Open campaign. It will be his sixth go. In the last two attempts he did not get past the first round. In 2003, he went as far as the third — a career highlight.

Last year, despite, his best-ever ranking, he did not progress much in the US or French opens either. As a clay court specialist, he did not qualify for Wimbledon. Grass remains anathema — but despite the tennis nay-sayers, his age is not a problem.

"Age is almost irrelevant," Luczak says. "It's how you are feeling, how you are enjoying it and how you are motivated. I know I am 26, but I still feel like I am new and young and eager to get out there.

"I have a baby on the way, and I am really motivated now. I am working extra hard in the gym and in the tennis court."

At 6-7, 7-6, 7-6 on Wednesday, it was universally acknowledged that Luczak had fluffed it. He seemed poised to claim a quarter-final berth in the Sydney International — indeed, there were two match points his way — but he was vanquished by Igor Andreev, ranked 26th in the world.

He lacks the killer instinct, some of his critics — and even friends — say. "A lot of guys say I'm too nice, 'you need to get a bit of aggro in you'."

Whether it's world rankings or scores at the end of hard-fought matches, Luczak always inhabits a numbers game. He picks a mix of satellite and more senior tournaments year-round to get the right calculus of earnings — to make a living — and ATP points — to advance in the tennis rankings.

"It's a strategic game, you need to mix up challengers (lesser matches) and ATP tournaments. In challengers there is less money but it's easier to win points to inch up the rankings," he says.

"Right now I've got about 300 ATP points. Lleyton probably has about 3000 or 4000 and Federer has got about 5000 points."

Although he is a regular practice partner for Hewitt and played the Davis Cup last year (another close loss), Luczak is a pragmatist. He does not cast himself as a giant killer on the tennis circuit. He knows the depth of the talent.

"You'd obviously love to be No. 1. Realistically, I don't see myself as No. 1.

"I'd say guys in the top 10 are in a class of their own — especially Roger Federer and Lleyton. But between the ranking of 10 and 150, there can be upsets."

With his wildcard, he will be looking for that upset now.

Back in January 2001, he was fighting for his tennis credentials at the Australian Open qualifying round — his debut at a Grand Slam. "I remember I started off well," recalls Luczak. "I won the first set, lost the second one and it was starting to get dark — it was 9pm or 9.30pm but it was a good atmosphere as I had a lot of friends and family there. I ended up losing 8-6 in the third set."

It was the first taste of a big tournament. This time, he was not staying in a cheap hotel but with his parents at the family home.

At the tennis, everything was a revelation, including the camaraderie of the locker room."You could get free deodorants and shampoos. You could get free drinks out of the fridge and you could get massages and there were cars picking you up, dropping you to and from the courts.

"My parents were driving me in. People were telling me 'why are you driving in, you can get a lift'. I don't think I found that out until after I lost. But I learnt quite quickly after that."

The next year, after deferring his studies in finance (there are still two semesters to go before he gets a degree), there was a summons to be a practice partner for the David Cup round played in Argentina.

"The first day I go there, we went to this expensive restaurant and Davis Cup captain John Fitzgerald said: 'Have whatever you want.' I was ordering the cheapest thing on the menu, though. I didn't realise at the end of the night they pay for it. After that, I was getting the steaks."

To date, Luczak's career earnings are $US250,000 ($A333,000). It's not enough to have the mansions and expensive sports cars his friend Lleyton commands, but it's enough for steak dinners, decent digs and the general expenses of life on the circuit. For the past two years, Luczak has also employed a personal coach, although that relationship recently ended amicably. He also has sponsors who help him out by providing tennis attire — he goes through a pair of shoes a week — and equipment.

While his family and friends will come to cheer him next week, there are no tennis groupies who will flock to his court. "Guys around my ranking wouldn't see too many groupies," laughs Luczak. "I think in Japan there was one lady who was a bit keen on me. When I was catching the bus to the airport, she was trying to give me a box of chocolates."

Peter got a WC to Adelaide and he is playing in the farcical Round Robin, he plays Vassallo Arguello to make into one of the groups.

If he wins, then he plays in this group.
