Joran Fly (ATP 85) was Wednesday, perhaps the happiest Belgian is at Roland-Garros. Together with its Kazakh partner, Mikhail Kukushkin, he played his first match at a Grand Slam, and he won that also. The duo knocked off the Moldaviër Radu Albot and the Tunesiër Malek Jaziri with 6-3, 3-6 and 6-4.
“I must admit that I have not good sense,” said the 25-year-old Fly with a big smile on his face. “It is a great feeling. My first match at a Grand Slam and straight on to the second round. They were also strong opponents, because they took on the US Open, both already in the semi-finals. I am also satisfied with my level and that of Mikhail, who is always reliable. A real machine.”
Flying would be like a Grand Slam play with his regular partner Sander Gillé, but they are not high enough to be classified. “Because we have too many lump sums had to hope, we have decided to take to the roads to separate for this event. I have different phone numbers called and ben came to Mikhail. My goal now is the top 50 to approach to as soon as possible in the future to be able to participate in a Grand Slam with Sander. That would be here with Bradley Klahn participate, but they took a place on the main table.” .
