Slovak tennis player wins under-16 European championship

Slovak tennis player Filip Horanský won the singles tournament at the European championship for under 16-year-olds in Moscow and he now ranks among players like Swedes Mats Wilander and Stefan Edberg, French players Yannick Noah and Jo-Wilfried Tsong, and Spaniard Tommy Robreda, the website of the Sme daily wrote. “I was happy when I leafed through the bulletin of the championship to find the names of previous winners there,” the young man, coached by Martin Hromec, said after having returned to Slovakia.

“I was happy when I leafed through the bulletin of the championship to find the names of previous winners there,” the young man, coached by Martin Hromec, said after having returned to Slovakia.

“I would put this Moscow gold medal on a second place after the participation in the quarter-finals at this year’s Grand Slam in Roland Garros in Paris,” he said in summing up his successes of this season.

Horanský now holds 25th place in the world junior tennis chart of players under 18. Juniors are not paid for their victories: Horanský got the victor’s cup, a medal and a diploma, according to the website of the Sme daily.
