Laslo Djere Gets a Second Chance to Win the Final

08.06.2018 17:48:24 | Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, the top seed of MONETA Czech Open, lost the first set in the tie-break. The decisive moment could have come at 5:5 when Djere broke the Spaniard’s serve. However, Garcia-Lopez gave as good as he got immediately afterwards. The Spaniard was more patient in the second set, as if he did not want to be too much in a hurry. He won it 6:3 and levelled the sets. In the third set, both players started patiently, saved their serves and sent the match to the final tie-break. The Serbian was leading 3:0, 4:2, 5:4 and eventually celebrated the victory. He won it 7:4 and advanced to the final of MONETA Czech Open. Laslo Djere has already appeared in the final of the Prostějov tournament. He lost to Jiří Veselý in 2015. Now, he got a second chance.

What did Laslo Djere say about the match? “It really was a tough match. I managed to win two tie-breaks, but I didn’t show great performance in the second set. However, we both played good tennis in the first and third sets. I pushed a bit more and was more focused, which actually decided the match.” The Serbian will meet Jaume Munar of Spain in the final match. What does he expect? “He’s a young player. I saw him play a few times recently and it seems he’s been in a pretty good shape. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s match, but I know I’ll have to do my very best. I’ll definitely want to win, of course, when I’ve got that far already.”
