NEW FRESH START
Bangkok Universiade 2007
Ho Chi Minh Title
The Bohemian glass became an integral part of gained tournament title in Vietnam. As a winner of 10th year of ATP tennis tournament in Ho Chie Minh City, Pavel received besides the beautiful cup also a unique present in a form of crystal trophy made in Czech Republic by Bohemia Crystalex Trading, a. s. I was amused when the director of tournament reported during the winner announcement that the Czech player would receive Bohemian glass as a present. I was not the only one who returned home from Vietnam happily in the end. To leave in final such a trophy to a foreigner would have been probably cruel…
Ostrava´s samurai Paya
The Asian tournament ended for Pavel in his historically greatest success for the present. In the first tournament in Japan he won through as unseeded player in semi-final. Thanks to this result he was not obliged to play qualification of another tournament in Vietnamese Ho Chi Minh City. He gained a special exception from ATP organization “special exame”. It enabled him to enter the main competition. In it, Paya, how the fans called him during the whole tournament, did not hesitate and showed concentrated performance. It brought him into the tournament victory. It is his first ATP tournament title. And in addition, Ostrava has waited to see! It has been 16 years since that Václav Roubíček (except Ivan Lendl) last won ATP tournament in 1991. Now there is again the tennis player from Ostrava who can come through among the world top. It is wonderful feeling to win my first ATP tournament title in my career, but it is clear that I will have to confirm upswing in form in other tournament a ...
Japanese Kyoto practised from 5th March to 11th March is the first of two tournaments which Pavel is going to pass on his tour of Asia. After a week he is going to move to Vietnamese Ho Chi Minh City in tournament where he met with his greatest success a year ago and moved up to the final. This year he defends in total 42 points in double from Asian tournament. After an injury I have already felt well. Intensive physiotherapy with physiotherapist Křížek helped me very much. Finally, I can focus only on tennis again.
STOP- ankle injury
Other trouble attacked Pavel during greatly opened tournament in German Mettmann. In quarter-final in position 7:6 and 2:0 he had to give up after quite short time because of health difficulties with suspicion of ankle fracture. Fortunately, it was only a weak ankle sprain which caused STOP to Pavel for 3 tournaments, including 2 tournaments in Zagreb. I do not want to rush anything, I believe I will be fit and totally prepared above all for tournament in Japan Kyoto and Vietnamese Ho Chi Ming City, which are held 5th March, and 12th March 2007.
Pavel gave up in Australia
Pavel Šnobel had great bad luck in first Grand Slam of Australian Open 2007. Pavel gave up well-opened match in the first round of Australian Open 2007 Qualification. In a win 6:2, 5:4 over German representative Summerer, health problems stopped Pavel and not even in spite of tournament physiotherapist’s help he could not continue later in that match. It was finished at 3-3 in the third set.
Australian Open 2007
Pavel Šnobel enters for qualification of 1st Grand Slam Tournament of Australian Open 2007 at the beginning of January. He will defend advance into the main competition from 2006. „I would like minimally to replicate this result. The competition is, however, very big, everybody will do the best in the court. I believe that the atmosphere of big tournament will motivate me to the best performance.“
Pavel prepared hard for new season in Ostrava. In 2007 he wants to play the maximum of ATP tournaments and to gain points at full blast. After several years the year 2007 is the first one when Pavel wants to play only ATP tournaments and leave commercial league competition which is not included in ATP ranking. “It is a risk step in my view, but I believe that I will manage everything and I will not have a problem to replace league earnings with compensations in tournament. I want to devote my time only to professional tennis.”
Šnobel won for the third time…
A tennis player Pavel Šnobel won the championship of the Czech Republic for the third time in his career. The most highly seeded player of Rieter Cup 2006 who arrived in Championship from Wimbledon had to cope with changeover to clay. Nevertheless, not even this fact stopped him from his total victory.
