ukasz Kubot has been waiting for victory in the main course for more than half a year. He had hoped to come in Estoril, but after the equalizer the chances were much less. Pole and Dutchman Robin Haas surrendered to the No. 1 seeded contenders.

For our representative, this is the second tournament in a row that he is cooperating with the Dutchman. But last week, ukasz Kubot and Robin Haase competed on a lower level, at the Challenger in Prague.

Now they are thrown into deep water. Not only were they selected for the main series championship, but fate gave them the strongest contenders – seeded with top seed Jimmy Murray and Michael Venus. The candidates won, but after the fight. The match ended with a score of 7:5, 2:6, 10-5.

So we can talk about a small hack. For the first time, Kubot won a set at the ATP Tour after a break caused by an injury. There was no better position in the tiebreak to be completely happy. The opponents jumped to five points at once (5-0) and held the advantage until the end.

For our representative this was our second time at Estoril. On his debut, in 2016, he performed much better, because with Marcin Matkowski he advanced to the finals.

Another doubles player, Jan Zielinski, also participated in this year’s edition of the Portuguese Championship. Unfortunately, he also lost in the first round.
