Russian tennis coach Viktor Yanchuk believes that Karen Khachanov won the first round of the ATP 500 category tournament in Astana against American Maxim Cressy due to the fact that he reached a new level of play.
Well done Karine! It’s just that he has already reached the level where we can expect wins from him over the strongest players. Another thing, he lacks the stability and confidence inherent in stars. So far, he has not become such a star, but he has tried to jump into the first echelon, and not without success. His skill has grown, he has become taller, he plays balls better now. He does not just respond blow for blow, but spreads the balls, holds the ball for a long time.
He must now believe in himself so that his ambitions increase and he claims the highest places. He needs self-confidence – that comes with time and wins. He did well, he became a great player. We are entitled to expect victories from him, but he would have more stability and confidence,” Yanchuk told the “Championship”.
In the second round, Khachanov will meet the winner of the match Marin Cilic (Croatia) – Oscar Otte (Germany).
