Djere doubles his tally of titles

Serbian Laslo Djere won his second career ATP title when he beat Italy’s Marco Cecchinato 7-6(3) 7-5in the ATP 250 event in Sardinia, the Forte Village Sardegna Open in Santa Margherita di Puta, Itlay.

My main focus is to improve my game on hard courts. So far it is improving, but it could be better. I wish I was a little bit faster and I hope I can find a way to be as good on hard courts as on clay Laslo Djere

The 25-year-old Djere had a great week dropping just one set on the clay courts, and that was to the brilliant Italian 18-year-old Lorenzo Musetti, a wild card entry, who was forced to retire when trailing 2-6 6-2 4-1 in the semi-finals played the previous day.
The event also marks the final clay court tour event of the season

“I grew up on clay. When I was a kid, I mostly practiced on clay. It is natural for me,” said Djere. “The movements are natural for me. The surface complements my game style. I play with a lot of topspin, especially on the forehand so I can adapt really fast on clay.

“My main focus is to improve my game on hard courts. So far it is improving, but it could be better. I wish I was a little bit faster and I hope I can find a way to be as good on hard courts as on clay.”

The 28-year-old Cecchinato, who saved a match point in his opener, lost his first ATP finals in four appearances.

“When you lose a final it is a tough moment, but I leave here with so many positive things because now I am coming back to the Top 100,” said Cecchinato. “I stayed very focused on my game during the match from the first to the last point. There are so many positive things from the past few weeks.”
