27.02.2017. 19:42

Our player Timon Rudolph (ITF 1093) won his very first ITF U18-title last week in Antalya after 5 deserved and great wins together with his Czech partner Dominik Palan (ITF 619).

In the semifinal then they were beating Nr. 2 seeded guys Bora Sengul (ITF 320) and Umut Akkoyun (ITF 759) in a very high-intensity match with 6-0, 4-6, 10-7.

In the final, they were facing the 7th seeded Ukrainian Team Volodymyr Malakhov (ITF 582) and Daniil Strelchenko (ITF 1501). It was a tough fight from the very first moment with a dramatic end in the deciding match tiebreak. Rudolph/Palan first missed 2 match points at 9-7, before defending a spectacular match point at 9-10. With some good tactical serving the Swiss/Czech combination finally won the match and the double title with 4-6, 6-2, 12-10.

Congrats Timon and keep on rolling that strong!


A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
