Adrian Andreev enters his best form just before the start of the Sofia Open and this week he recorded two very prestigious wins at the Challenger in Rennes. Our young hope outplayed the local representative Maxim Janvier at the start, and then dealt with the resistance of the world number 95 – Hugo Grenier. In doing so, the Bulgarian recorded his second career win over a top 100 player, which will help him secure his biggest tennis challenge yet, as he will face Dominic Thiem himself in the quarterfinals.
The former US Open champion was sidelined for nearly a year after suffering a serious wrist injury and has been far from convincing on his return to the court, recording a seven-game losing streak. However, the former number three has shown signs of awakening in recent weeks after reaching the semi-finals of the ATP 250 event in Gstaad and it is the Austrian who is clearly the favorite in tomorrow’s meeting between him and our 21-year-old compatriot. However, Adrian has shown a magnificent game in the course of the tournament and should definitely not be written off, and the match is expected to start no earlier than 21:30. You could follow the meeting on the usual links on our site.
