Or his path to the title, Griga as the fans like to call him, won all 5 games without a single set lost. His serve was functioning perfectly, along with his forehand, which is his biggest weapon.

Vaclav Safranek overview
The-23-year old Czech won during the qualifying part for the US Open. In this way he earned the right to appear in the main draw. Safranek defeated all of his opponents with the same result 2:1 and among them, the biggest name was Sergiy Stakhovsky. It
will be his first appearance at Flushing Meadows, and he will for sure have a huge motive to present himself in the best possible way.
Before these matches, he was attending several Challengers where he had decent results and almost always entered the quarterfinals. His record in this year is 44 victories and 23 defeats, but as we said, most of the matches were at low-quality tournaments.
