“It was a great final, a fight for whoever managed to dominate the other,” he told Belga after his victory. “I am very happy with the way I behaved. I was very focused and I managed to find the solutions to improve my game positively and win this very close second set. This is only the second tournament where I’m physically fit again and it’s a nice feeling to have been able to win the title. It was worth it to continue playing despite the fact that I could only backhand slice, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to display this level.”
This is the second title of the year in a Challenger tournament for Zizou Bergs, hampered by a left wrist injury in recent months. The native of Lommel had already won in April in Tallahassee, in the United States. A result which will allow him to find himself around 150th place in the ATP.
“I would like to dedicate this title to my grandfather who passed away this year,” he continued. “And I would also like to thank my coach (Gert-Jan De Muynck, who accompanied him to Canada, editor’s note). He doesn’t have an easy time with me. I’m not the easiest player to manage on the circuit. That’s why I have a psychologist,” he smiled. “I had a great week here. Drummondville is a great community. If my ranking means I’m not in the Top-100, I hope to come back.”
