Once the Czech was the tennis hope of his country. He was the first racket among juniors and quickly entered the top 100 among adults, but he did not succeed in becoming a top player. The maximum Jiri became the 35th line of the world ranking. Last season, he even dropped out of the top 100. At the beginning of 2020, the 26-year-old tennis player spoke at the ATP 250 tournament in Doha, where he defeated the Croatian Ivo Karlovic in qualification and was able to compete with the Hungarian Marton Ficovich.
Then, instead of going to the Australian Open, where he would have to qualify, Jiri decided to play two Challengers in Thailand. Nevertheless, being the first seeded in both cases, in total he won only two matches. At the start of the ATP Pune Vesely easily defeated the nominal owner of the courts from the seventh hundred of the rating, and in the second round he pleased his fans with victory over Italian Salvatore Caruso.
Last year, Belarus for the first time entered the top 100 players in the world, but due to an injury, was forced to miss several months in late spring and early summer. Upon returning, Ilya Ivashka showed good results during the American series of tournaments, passing, in particular, in the main draw of the US Open. This year he began with an unsuccessful trip to one of the Challengers, but again performed well in the major. After passing the qualifying stage for the second time in a row, the 25-year-old player was one step away from defeating ex-top 10 Kevin Anderson from South Africa.
But the rival’s experience and class helped him in key moments. Nevertheless, Ivashko made a pleasant impression on the fans. In Pune, he started with a confident victory over the Russian Evgeny Donskoy, and then in two time-breaks he proved his superiority over the Italian Stefano Travaglia. Ilya helped the first pitch: with 10 aces, he did not make a single double mistake.
