Think this kid deserves a thread.
Won his first futures title at the age of 17 today impressively coming back from 2-6 *1-3 down to beat Baluda  2-6 7-5 7-6 (4).
Prior to that he recorded a fine win over Kravchuk  again showing battling qualities to win a tight 3 set match. He also beat Zaitsev  in 2 and 2 in the quarters.
Impressive results for the young Russian. With all the hype for Rublev, this kid could slowly come under the radar. Worth following for sure.
