Successful delegation to Antalya
Our travel coach Sascha Rudolph returned from a successful tournament delegation with his players. Tom Cecchetto, Timon Rudolph, Edoardo Graziani and Moritz Thiem traveled with Sascha to Antalya to play three international tournaments. First, they played an ITF U18, then a TE U16 and last but not least an ITF Futures Qualification. Especially the TE U16 was a big success for the boys. Rudolph/Graziani made it to the double final and Graziani reached the semifinal and Rudolph the quarterfinal in singles. Even more important was the great win of Tom Cecchetto in Q1 of the ITF Futures over an N3-ranked Australian player. In Q2 he lost after a very remarkable performance to an ATP 1500 ranked Japanes player. Moritz Thiem, the brohter of Austrian star Dominic Thiem also showed a great performance in Q1 of the ITF Futures by losing only 3-6, 4-6 against ATP 1025. Rudolph lost close 5-7, 5-7 in Q1 against a 24 year old greek player while Graziani even reached Q3 after two wins.
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.
