Tallon Greek track seems to be on its way to end its breakthrough year in style. With his 24th win in a row, the Dutch tennis player made it to the semifinals of the challenger tournament in Bratislava, Slovakia.
Greek track defeated Czech Jiri Lehecka in the quarterfinals of the indoor tournament 7-6 (3), 6-3. It is still unknown who will be his opponent on Saturday.
The player from Nieuw-Vennep is experiencing an unprecedented 2021 by stringing together victories at the second professional level.
That has earned him a record seven challenger titles in one season so far. He can therefore expand this with an eighth title in Bratislava.
From place 155 to 72
Because of his performances, Greek track has climbed to 72nd place in the world ranking, a position that is usually sufficient to be directly admitted to the tournaments at the highest level next season. He started the year as the global number 155.
The last loss of Greek poor dates from September 3 in the second round of the US Open and he was somewhat forgiven for that loss: Novak Djokovic was the opponent then.
