Andrej Martin was in the third round at Roland Garros

Andrej Martin, EMPIRE Tennis Academy member, was at the second grand slam of the year, Roland Garros. As a lucky loser, he advanced into the third round. He is just the third lucky loser to reach the third round of Roland Garros in the last 30 years, joining Goffin (2012), Lee (2004).

Andrej Martin beat German Nils Langer and afterwards also 17-year old home wild card player Geoffrey Blancaneaux in second qualifying round in Paris in two sets 6-2, 6-2. "It was fine, it was all about my game, and opponent did not push on me. I felt well on the court. I have problems with neck injury but it did not limit me at all today," said Martin for www.empire-tennis-academy.com.
On Friday, Martin played against Jan-Lennard Struff and tried to advance into what would be his second main draw at grand slam, after achieving this at 2013 US Open. Despite his defeat, as a lucky looser he made the main draw of the tournament. In Round 1, he beat Spaniard Daniel-Munozo De La Nava in fourth sets 6-2, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4. It’s his first time in second round of grand slam! "Andrej played very well. His opponent improved in third, Andrej was not aggressive enough. Fourth set was great for both players, but Andrej played well tactically and the end was amazing. Great success for him," said coach Miloslav Grolmus for www.empire-tennis-academy.com directly from Paris.
"I started to play a little bit nervous in the beginning, but after 2-2 in the first set I was a better player on the court for two sets. I hit aggressive shots and I played precisely. In the third set I had chances to win but after a bit silly performance I lost that set. In the fourth, the game was leveled and I am very glad that I managed to win after first chance to end the match," said Andrej Martin.

Andrej lost in the third round after hard battle to Milos Raonic 6-7(4), 2-6, 3-6.
