Adam Vejmelka - September 2006


Adam Vejmelka - September 2006



Adam Vejmelka from the Czech Republic is featured for the month of September. Adam has competed in the African series of Futures in Sudan, Rwanda and Uganda, where remarkably he has won all three events in consecutive weeks. In all three tournaments he only dropped three sets.

At Sudan F1, Vejmelka came back from losing the opening set in his first round match against Briton James Feaver, before winning 57 63 62. He then beat another Briton Edward Seator in more convincing fashion 60 60. He was again taken to three sets by John McGahon of Ireland before completing the victory 75 36 62 and progressed to take on Andemir Karanashev (RUS) in the final. The top seed Vejmelka was too strong for Lucky Loser Karanashev, taking the title 62 64.

At Rwanda F1, Vejmelka only lost one game in his first two matches against Dmitry Ivanov (UZB) and Maxime Bonami (FRA). A tougher match against Laurent Bram from Luxembourg followed, but Vejmelka came through strongly to win 36 64 62. In the semi finals, Vejmelka was a set up before his opponent Motaz Abou El Khair was forced to retire. He then took on Marcel Miron from Romania in the final and earned his second title in two weeks by winning 63 63.

The action then moved on to Uganda, where Vejmelka continued with his good run of form, not dropping a set throughout the whole event. Again the top seed, he breezed through the early rounds, taking on Bogdan-Victor Leonte in the final and winning the title 75 61. For the first time during the three weeks, he also entered the doubles event, along side Victor Bruthans but they fell at the first hurdle to Oualid Jallali (TUN) and Talal Ouahabi (MAR).

During September, Vejmelka won three ITF Futures tournaments and earned 36 points. This added to the two singles titles he had won earlier in the year.
