Artem Dubrivnyy won two titles in Villach

EMPIRE Tennis Academy, Artem Dubrivnyy, Villach, ITF

Sixteen years old Artem Dubrivnyy  has benefited from the training sessions in the EMPIRE Tennis Academy in Trnava and achieved a fantastic result in Villach. Together with the singles title, he was also successful in doubles and became the biggest star of Panaceo ITF Junior Cup.

Junior tournament (Grade 2) event was played outdoors on the clay courts. Dubrivnyy, coached by Vladimir Platenik, beat on his way to the final the Slovak player Juras in the first round, then surprised against number one seed Japanese Ito in the 2R. In quarterfinals, he managed to win over sixth seed, Austrian Erler and on Friday in dramatic semi-final, he held his nerves against Macedonian Srbljak 7-6(5), 7-5. In the final played on Saturday, Dubrivnyy proved his good form and succeeded against Bulgarian Lazarov in two sets 6-3, 7-5. Together with the trophy, Dubrivnyy earned 100 points into the combined junior ITF ranking.

Dubrivnyy (No. 145 in the ITF ranking) was also successful in doubles, together with Pole Piotr Matuszewski, they reached the final of the tournament in Villach. In the final, they faced Slovak pair Juras/Liska, whom they managed to defeat in straight sets 6-3, 6-1. For the triumph in doubles, Dubrivnyy will earn 75 points into the ranking.

"He played well for some time at the junior tournaments. He needed time to get into the rhythm. We trained a lot indoors during winter and adaptation to the outdoor courts takes some time. At first, he was showing average performances, but I think he has potential to have a good season. He practiced a lot, he is well prepared physically, and his game is improving. I am pleased he won the junior Grade 2 event. I'm sure he must be very happy at the moment, because his goal was to play at the Roland Garros this year. I am not sure whether he makes it, whether he has enough points now," said his coach Vladimir Platenik for www.empire-tennis-academy.com.

"He is still very young, only 16. I do not have the aim to play grand slams with him. He must work hard and prepare for the time when he starts playing on the men's circuit. I want him to be physically, tactically and mentally prepared, to be confident in his game. Better than those players who chase the junior points on the circuit," concluded Vladimir Platenik.
