Victor Hanescu managed to lose two finals in one day. Despite this, he seems to be optimist for the next tours in Hamburg and Gstaad. "I'm in good shape. I will go to Hamburg, then to Gstaad to defend my title," Hanescu said. He advanced two position in the ATP top, ranking 31st after the Stuttgart final.
"I had a difficult day," Hanescu told atpworldtour.com. "But I'm glad for the tennis that I've shown this week. I won the first because of a very good tennis, then Chardy started to serve better and he deserved the title." Hanescu lost against Chardy, score 6-1, 3-6, 4-6. After impressing the public with superb strikes and very good field coverage, he started regressing with the second set.
Hanescu has no time for Stuttgart nostalgia and needs to quickly forget his defeats because he was designated Hamburg ATP tour no 11. The German open will award prizes amounting to a total of 1.115 million euros.
"I have definitely favourable weeks awaiting me. I'm in a good physical condition. I will go to Hamburg and I will play starting with the second tour. I hope to have a good evolution. Then I'll go to Gstaad and defend my title the week after", the Romanian tennis player concluded.
