That is the third spherical and the day the place you’ll be able to win your ticket to the principle draw of the Australian Open!
Taro was first on so we had successful at 9 am with Coppejans.
They modified Taro to a smaller courtroom. In comparison with the final two matches he now performed on courtroom 3! This courtroom 3 is the hardest courtroom as it’s the place the entire folks go by to go follow and return to the participant’s lounge so lots of visitors. We knew this was going to be an enormous change and Elias had performed there yesterday and had an incredible win. So lengthy story brief it simply didn’t occur. Elias performed extraordinarily effectively and you must give him the entire credit score!
So after heading again to the lodge, we additionally determined to go to Melbourne it doesn’t matter what would occur since Taro could be one of many prime 4 fortunate losers, with 2 spots out there we simply want a little bit of luck to get drawn from these 4 gamers.
As a substitute of ready round, we had lunch on the lodge, stuffed out our varieties, and headed again to the courts to work some extra on Taro’s sport and eliminate the unhealthy feeling!
I received the message from Taro at 18:38, and that is the most effective information we received in 2021! Taro and his crew in Japan have labored so laborious within the low season and Taro has made some main modifications and right this moment simply bumped into an incredible participant that performed an incredible match. However to obtain the information that he received onto the draw as a fortunate loser, I’m so completely happy for him!!!
