BIG BREAK FOR DANAI
Published on June 18, 2005

Thai No 2 makes it to main draw

Danai Udomchoke became the second Thai man to have his name inscribed in the Wimbledon main draw after fighting off a bout of nerves to beat Swiss Filipp Prpic 7-5 6-4 6-1 in the rain-delayed final qualifying round on Thursday.

The world No 161 had to summon all his courage to put behind him last year’s nightmare when he lost to Belgian Christopher Rochus in five close sets, to beat the 271st-ranked Prpic in a match that was several hours behind schedule because of rain.

“I was nervous at the beginning because I wanted to win and qualify for the main draw so much. I could not stop thinking about that loss. That’s why the first two sets were close even though I knew I was the better player,’’ said Danai, who squandered a series of opportunities to Rochus in the final qualifying last year.

The 24-year-old has now registered as only the second Thai player in the Open Era to make the men’s singles main draw at All England after Paradorn Srichaphan in 1999. But his debut in a major main draw came in the US Open last year.

“I’m so happy but not as much as I was at the US Open. But Wimbledon is a great tournament and I feel proud,’’ said Danai who was greatly boosted by the presence of his mother, sister and niece. For the first time he was supported by all of them, especially his mother, in a major. “Their company helped me a lot. Normally my family does not come with me on tour,’’ said Danai whose breakthrough at Wimbledon could also be attributed to Czech coach Jan Storces. Danai and his close friend Lu Yen-hsun have shared the US$2,000 cost of hiring Storces over the past two weeks. And both players successfully made it through to the main draw.

“He played a key role in helping me reach the main draw. We also worked together when I qualified for the US Open,’’ said Danai, whose next challenge is to move beyond the first round in a slam. He lost to Tommy Robredo of Spain at Flushing Meadows last year.

Austria’s Stefan Koubek will be his first round opponent in the main draw. No matter who comes his way, “It will be tough whomever I have to meet in the main draw. I feel more comfortable on grass now and I’m gaining more and more confidence with each match I play.”

Danai looked rusty when he started his match against Prpic. He lost his early service game to fall 0-2 behind but fought back to surge ahead at 6-5 in the first set. The Thai created a crucial break to go ahead 5-4 in the second and held his serve for a 2-0 set lead. Danai took a full charge in the final set and allowed his opponent only one game.

WIMBLEDON: DYNAMIC DANAI
Published on June 22, 2005

Thai tennis fans have someone else to root for at this year’s Wimble-don after Danai Udom-choke came back from the threshold of defeat to beat Austrian Stefan Koubek in his first round match which had been postponed from Monday because of bad light.

After the match was stalled at

3-3 in the final set on the first day due to bad light, the two renewed their rivalry on court nine yesterday and the Thai fought back after trailing at 5-6 and 30-30 – two points from making an exit – to win the marathon encounter 5-7 6-4 4-6

6-3 8-6.

Danai’s victory was some consolation for local tennis fans after compatriot and local No 1 Paradorn Srichaphan was outperformed by Marat Safin of Russia on Monday. For the first time in his life, the young man who has had to live in Para-dorn’s shadow grabbed the spotlight.

It was his first win in a Grand Slam match after qualifying for the 2004 US Open, only to lose to Tommy Robredo of Spain in round one.

Battling his way through the qualifying rounds at Wimbledon, Danai also had to overcome an injury to his left leg which he sustained in the first set on Monday. “I felt pain when I finished the first set,” Danai told The Nation yesterday minutes before resuming his match.

“I just tried to play and hit every ball and they went in. I felt pain when I served and returned. Sometimes, I just let the ball pass my face,” added the 161st-ranked Danai, who went to bed on Monday night worried that he may be unable to play the next day.

“Last night I felt a lot of pain. I thought I would not be able to play today. But today I felt a bit better, even thought there was still some pain,” said the 23-year-old, who picked up a tennis racquet in a bid to cure the asthma which almost took his life as a child.

With the injury hampering his movement on Monday, Danai thought his match against Koubeck, ranked No 78 in the world, would be over in the fifth set. Luckily, the chair umpire suspended play due to bad light.

“I felt pain and he was getting tired. So I think it’s good for both of us,” said Danai, who has a big hurdle waiting in round two today.

He will face the 10th-seeded Mario Ancic of Croatia, who won his first career title in a Wimbledon warm-up in the Netherlands on Sunday. The world No 17, a semi-finalist last year, is a grass court specialist and beat German Tobias Summerer in straight sets 6-3 7-5 6-1 in his first round match.

“At this point, I have nothing to lose,” said Danai.

The Thai saved a few set points in the 10th game, but could not escape two games later when he lost his serve and allowed Koubek to take the opening set 7-5. He made one break in the second set which was enough for a 6-4 win and to level the match at 1-1.

A crucial break in the 10th game gave Koubek the third set at 6-4 and a 2-1 set lead over Danai. But the Thai never gave up, levelling the match by taking the fourth set 6-3 to force the decider.

Despite having an early break and building a 2-0 lead, Danai could not hold on to his advantage. With the score at 3-3 in the decider, play was suspended as dusk approached.

When play resumed yesterday, Danai lost his serve at the start, but broke right back to level at 4-4. Danai was then ahead at 5-4, but lost the next two games and the left-handed Koubek was serving for the match at 6-5.

But the tough little Thai hung in there to break his rival and get back in the match at 6-6. And after Danai saved several break points in the long seventh game which he finally held, it seemed the challenge from Koubek was over. Danai converted his first match point opportunity to wrap up the fifth set 8-6.

Yesterday’s results:

Men’s singles first round: Guillermo Coria (ARG x15) b Tomas Behrend (GER) 6-1 6-2 6-2 ; Jiri Novak (CZE x28) b Peter Wessels (NED) 7-6 (7/4) 6-3 6-4; Andrew Murray (GBR) b George Bastl (SUI) 6-4 6-2 6-2; Andy Roddick (USA x2) b Jiri Vanek (CZE) 6-1 7-6 (7/4) 6-2; Alex Calatrava (ESP) b Tuomas Ketola (FIN) 6-4 7-6 (7/4) 6-4; Danai Udomchoke (THA) b Stefan Koubek (AUT) 5-7 6-4 4-6 6-3 8-6; Jurgen Melzer (AUT) b Ivan Ljubicic (CRO x20) 6-4 6-4 6-4.

Women’s singles first round: Cho Yoon Jeong (KOR) b Arantxa Parra Santonja (ESP) 6-3 6-3; Kveta Peschke (CZE) b Dally Randriantefy (MAD) 7-5 6-1 ; Shahar Peer (ISR) b Meilen Tu (USA) 6-3 6-3; Katarina Srebotnik (SLO) b Anabel Medina Garrigues (ESP x31) 6-3 6-3; Vera Zvonereva (RUS x11) b Marlene Weingartner (GER) 2-6 6-4 6-0; Maria Sharapova (RUS x2) b Nuria Llagostera Vives (ESP) 6-2 6-2; Daniela Hantuchova (SVK x20) b Evgenia Linetskaya (RUS) 3-6 6-2 6-2.

WIMBLEDON: Danai down
Published on June 24, 2005

But Thai’s star shines a little brighter. When Danai Udomchoke arrives home on Saturday morning he will no longer be known as the tennis player who lives in the shadow of Paradorn Srichaphan and Tamarine Tanasugarn.

Despite his second round loss to big-serving Croat Mario Ancic on Wednesday night, the unheralded Danai captured the hearts of the fans and huge attention from the media after he pipped Stefan Koubeck of Austria in round one.

For more than two hours, he fought off a right leg injury to display impressive tennis to take a set from the 10th-seeded Ancic before losing in 7-6 (6-8) 3-6 6-3 6-3.

Danai, ranked just 161 in the world, became only the second Thai man in history after Paradorn to qualify for the main draw at All England in the open era. And when he progressed to the second round while Paradorn did not, the world realised a new tennis prodigy from Thailand had arrived on the scene.

At the moment, the 24-year-old Danai is overshadowing his more illustrious countryman and has been on the front pages of many newspapers. He said was prepared for a media onslaught, similar to what Paradorn experienced during his peak in 2002.

“I think I just have to be ready for that. I think I will have some rest to heal my leg for awhile, so there should not be any problem,’’ Danai told The Nation yesterday.

But no matter how big the reception waiting for him at home, Danai said he would maintain his ordinary and simple lifestyle even though more people will recognise him on the street.

“I will still be the same person. But I guess I might get more attention from people wherever I go,’’ said Danai whose confidence is sky high after matching it with Ancic, a semi-finalist at Wimbledon last year.

“Now I feel that I can play everybody. I might try to skip the challenge level and play more ATP events now,’’ said Danai who yesterday had his right leg scanned.

It was this injury that took the edge off his game against Ancic, who claimed a title on grass in the Netherlands less than a week ago. The Thai had set point against the Croat at 6-5 in the tie-break but lost after a double fault.

“If I feel sorry [in any way], it would be for giving him that first set. I could have shaken his confidence should I have taken that set,’’ the Thai said.

“I played very well even though my leg hurts. I could have played even better if I’d had no injury.” Danai sustained the injury during his match with Koubeck on Monday.

Danai applied superb returns and passing shots to break Ancic’s service game and win the 35-minute second set 6-3. But his injury was aggravated in the third set and before long he was trailing the towering Croat 0-5.

Danai called for a trainer and won three straight games before surrendering the set 3-6. The Thai was down an early break in the final set and had a chance to break back at 3-4. Ancic never made things easy for Danai, firing explosive serves and charging the net to dominate the rest of the match.

Danai will cancel his tour of Spain in order to rest at home. His next tournament will be the Davis Cup tie against Japan in Osaka next month.

Brave effort by Danai
Bangkok Post

Wimbledon _ Thailand number two Danai Udomchoke put up a gallant fight against 10th seeded Croatian giant Mario Ancic before succumbing in four sets at Wimbledon late Wednesday night.

The Croatian, who famously knocked out British hero Tim Henman in the quarter-finals last year, survived a second set scare before triumphing 7-6 (8-6), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 in just under three hours.

It was a brave effort by Danai who had battled through a long five-setter to reach the second round and appeared to run out of steam in the later stages against Ancic.

Hundreds of fans decked out in Croat national football shirts and flags had squeezed into Court 14. They braved the scorching sun to cheer their most famous tennis player since 2001 champion Goran Ivanisevic. And they weren't disappointed.

Despite wavering concentration mid-way through the second-round match, the 21-year-old Croat hammered immaculate serves and volleys that would have made Goran proud.

Danai, who at 5ft 8in stood almost a foot shorter than his opponent, played his part in a thoroughly enjoyable game. Maybe, just maybe, if the Thai had taken one of the three break points on the Ancic serve in the first set the story could have been different.

Instead after 12 consecutive breakless service games, a tiebreak finally had to separate the pair. Both players then had opportunities to take the first set but the Thai player served a disastrous double fault and handed Ancic the advantage.

Still Danai was not prepared to let his head drop.

Cheered on by his Thai fans, he came back strong and broke Ancic with fine forehands. Danai maintained his good form and claimed the second set in 32 minutes.

In the next set Ancic raised his game at the right moment. He exploited Danai's weakness with finesse and raced to a 5-0 lead. The Thai player managed to peg the score back to 5-3 but Ancic took the set with an exquisite volley.

Ancic, who is very much the image of his hero Ivanisevic with his massive serve and gangly body, was then in the mood to finish off the match. He efficiently closed the fourth set 6-4 with his 19th ace of the match.

Danai and his close friend Lu Yen-hsun won 2002 $25K Yokohama double title.
(Danai and Lu are closed friend. They are playing double together and they shared the US$2,000 cost of hiring part-time coach Jan Storces over the past two weeks in Wimbledon 2005. And both successfully made it through to the main draw and reached second round.)

Well come back to Thailand, Danai just back to bangkok this morning. He is invited to meet his sponsor ( Boonrod Brewery ) on Wednesday, talking about hiring permanent coach.

Now Danai does not have permanent coach, he and closed friend, Yen-Hsun Lu shared the money of hiring part-time coach ( Rainer's coach ). Both also shared the US$2,000 cost of hiring part-time coach Jan Storces in Wimbledon 2005.

Glad to know Danai will have permanent coach form now.

C'mon Pik.

Danai and Paradorn move up



Published on July 05, 2005

[TENNIS] Thai No 2 Danai Udomchoke has rocketed 24 places to 137th in the ATP rankings with local No 1 Paradorn Srichaphan climbing two places to 43rd, while Thailand’s leading women’s player, Tamarine Tanasugarn, dropped 13 places to 82nd in the WTA rankings.

After battling his way through qualifying, then making it to Wimbledon’s second round, Danai has jumped to 137th from 161st with 310 points, which is the highest ranking in his career.

Meanwhile, compatriot Paradorn Srichaphan, who crashed out in the first round at Wimbledon, has climbed to 43rd from 45th with 800 points.

Thai women’s No 1 Tamarine, who was knocked out in the second round, has dropped to 82nd from 69th with 426.25 points because she could not defend the points she earned by making the fourth round at Wimbledon last year. It is her worst ranking in the past three years.

Danai said he might not represent Thailand at the SEA Games in the Philippines in December, where he is the two-time defending champion.

“There is a challenger tournament in South Africa during the SEA Games. My highest goal is to be ranked in the world’s top 100. So I want to concentrate on the world rankings more than the SEA Games,” he said. “For my training, I still hire Czech coach Jan Stroces at a salary of Bt40,000 per week. I picked him because he knew what my problems were and he also gave me psychological advice that boosted my confidence in every matched I played,” added Danai.

Danai takes home the title

GRANBY, Canada July 31, 2005
World No. 142 and fourth seed Danai Udomchoke successfully captured his third ATP challenger titles in $US50,000 Natrel's Challenger of Granby in Canada on Sunday.


The Thai 24 year-old from Bangkok who has reached 2005 Wimbledon second round, continued his impressive form to defeat second seed Gregory Carraz of France in three gruelling sets 7-6(6), 2-6, 7-6(2) in the final. " It's very tough match. He (Carraz) still played very well even he is 30-year-old. He is a tall man and having a big serve. I had so many chances to break him but he saved with his big serve even he was down 0 - 40. I'm lucky to return serve well in the tie break. I'm happy because I played very good tennis this week. " said Danai who awarded $US7,200 and 60 ATP entry points.

This is Danai's third ATP challenger titles. The first title came at $US25,000 Dharwad, India in 2003 and won the second at $US50,000 Busan Open 2005 in Korea.


Well done PIK, next reach top 100.
