Russian tennis player Karen Khachanov rated his start in Melbourne.
“After Paris, nothing has changed. The ending of last season was excellent, but this is all in the past. We are already at the Australian Open, and most importantly
– I feel good. We need to find a rhythm and add. There are difficult conditions and other courts are fast. I have to adapt, so I don’t think about other tournaments at all. I pay tribute to my opponent, he is very dangerous on such coverage, he beat very hard, and I had to think about my serve and wait for chances. On this court it is much harder to betray the ball, but this is not necessary, because then the opponent will beat faster.
It is important to dictate the pace, to be the leader of the attack. Then everything will work out. If you play with rotation, it is very easy to punch from him aggressively. And as soon as the opponent changes direction, you are already on the defensive. This is not the best option for me, “the Tour press service quotes Karen.
