An irish person won a challenger! :yippee: Finally someone for irish fans to cheer from apart from Conor niland :help:
nah, any time there is a tie in ireland im not there, which is a shame cos the Fitzwilliam tennis club where ireland holds its matches is a 5 minute walk from me! im hoping to see him in the Dublin challenger in July so ill let you know thenKnow anything about the way he plays FB?
Ive been following tennis since sep 2002 and the irish players quite regularily in that time and ive never seen any irishman win a challenger. Louk almost qualified for Munich last year but lost in last round of qualifying -: http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=100652That is damn impressive. I wonder how long it has been since an Irishman won an ITF title. Well done Louk. I will keep an eye out to see if he can build on this. He should have a good chance now to get into the RG and Wimbledon qualies now.
:lol: yeah, he's no Óisín Ó Gormain but Ill settle for any irish guy who can win a match, regardless of name >DA fine Irish name if ever I saw one. Particularly common in County Tipperary as far as I know.
Nice to see him in form with a winnable DC tie against Morocco approaching.
He lives in Germany and as far as I know he was even born here. Sörensen is a quite common name in the northern-most part of Germany close to the Danish border. But Louk is from Baden-Württemberg in the south. :shrug: In the early 80s there was an Irish player Sean Sorensen who later became one of the organizers of the Heilbronn challenger. I guess that's Louk's father.Well done guess he has some Danish ancestors or something like that with his Sorensen name.
I've seen this guy play once in Davis Cup where he was dismantled by Jarkko Nieminen on autopilot.Know anything about the way he plays FB?
Interesting. I saw him playing quarters in Wolfsburg. I'd say power now is the one thing he really has. Sometimes he even grunted like Monica Seles. And he started serving three aces in a row in the first game. That's impressive especially as he is not exactly tall.I've seen this guy play once in Davis Cup where he was dismantled by Jarkko Nieminen on autopilot.
He's one of those retrievers, fast guy without much power on either wing. Not a total wreck at the net but avoids getting there. A rather nondescript player but he has a tendency to slide even on indoor hard courts.
That was two years ago, and he's a young guy so he's probably refined his game a bit.
