“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.
