Sasha Gozun through to Kalamazoo Rd 16 in Boy’s 16’s
The Sasha Gozun train keeps rolling here at the National Hardcourts with a hard fought three set win yesterday over #4 seed Logan Smith in the Boy’s 16’s. Logan is a very accomplished player with excellent speed, defense and court sense and Sasha was able to pull out a sensational 4-6, 7-5, 6-4 victory yesterday afternoon.
Sasha was in deep trouble down 3-0 and 40-0 on his serve in the third set, but he was able to save those three break points and claw his way back for probably the best win of his young career.
I am assisting Sasha’s coach, Brandon Wagner, here at the tournament with Dartfish match analysis and game plans and we are both delighted with how Sasha is progressing with his tactics during the point and his body language between the points.
I have updated the Brain Game Academy weekly lesson with another interview with the three of us late last night – you can click on the following link to go straight to the interview exclusively in the members section of the BG website. It took a few “takes”, so we threw in some pretty funny bloopers as well. Highlights of the match will also be posted this morning on the same page.
Sasha will play in the Round of 16 this afternoon at 2pm and we are preparing this morning for another tough encounter.
