Nicholas David Ionel (18 years old) found out from his mother, Ela Ionel, the news that he received a wild-card on the main singles board at "Concord Iași Open"
So, the value level has increased a lot, and I consider that I play much better than last year. I hope to be able to show my best tennis in Iasi, I can't wait to get to Iasi ", said Nicholas Ionel, from Poland, who did not forget to thank the owner of "Concord Iasi Open", Andrei Oriţă.
Nicholas (523 ATP) played a $ 25,000 ITF at the Wroclaw World Cup 2021 in Poland this week. Nicholas had in the first round the Italian Davide Tortora, a player from the qualifications, with 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, but he lost in the eighths in front of the favorite no. 3, the Ukrainian Vladislav Orlov (26 years old, 374 ATP), who needed three sets to win 6-2, 3-6, 6-3. Last week, Nicholas lost in the first round at Klosters (Switzerland) in the company of Francesco Forti (Italy, 380 ATP), who later played in the final.
A second-year student at the National University of Physical Education and Sports in Bucharest, Nicholas will not play next week and will probably come to Iasi to train with his coach, Andrei Pavel, director of "Concord Iasi Open" 2021, participating on the main board, where the first games are scheduled for July 12.
"We are happy that there are people like Mr. Andrei Oriță! Iasi is a wonderful place, with beautiful people and an amazing tournament! Thank you on behalf of David for this chance to play in a Challenger tournament! You can't even imagine how important it is for David", mentioned Ms. Ela Ionel.
