He then managed to grab the fourth and second numbers in the tournament with a score of 6:4, 4:6, 6:1 against another Czech, Mathias Marcek, and with a smooth score of 6:1, 6:3 against the American boy Elliot. Omoye. Only the first number proved too strong in the final match that day. Leonie Schauer had to bye the girls in the first round.
