Hihetetlen bravúrral egy magyar fiatalember, Piros Zsombor nyerte az Australian Open teniszbajnokságot. 


Hungary's Zsombor Piros has won the country's first Australian Open boys' championship.

Zsombor Piros, the 15th seed, had to work for nearly two hours to beat fourth-seeded Yshai Oliel of Israel 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

It was only the second Grand Slam junior event for the 17-year-old from Budapest. He lost second round at Melbourne Park last year.

The opening set was the only one Piros lost on his way to the title. He beat the second and fifth seeds before outslugging the Israeli left-hander in the final.

Oliel, who beat top-seeded Wu Yibing of China in the semifinals, proved less steady than his opponent.

With the title in the balance at 1-1 in the deciding set, Piros slumped to 0-40. The right-hander, who lists magic tricks among his hobbies, found a way to scramble out of that service game and grew in confidence from there.

He broke for 4-2 and was untroubled in the next two service games to close out the match.

It was the first meeting between the pair, who conquered the top two seeds in the draw. Oliel defeated top seed Yibing Wu 6-4 3-6 6-2 in the semifinals, while Piros was able to account for second seed Yu Hsiou Hsu 6-3 6-2 in the third round.

The first set began with Piros claiming the opening break in the second game before Oliel was able to reclaim it, before taking control of the momentum to break the Hungarian’s serve again and claim the set, edging one step closer to singles success at a junior Grand Slam.

Piros was elated that he was able to regroup after the first set, saying that his belief was shaken after being up a break and being overrun.

"I am honest. After the first set, I lost my belief a little bit," he said.

"So, yeah. It was my first one, first main draw won in the Grand Slam. I am still surprised myself at this win."

The second began on shaky terms for Oliel, as he was again broken early by the Hungarian, who was able to run the fourth seed around the court in an effort to wrestle the momentum back.

It looked as though Piros may have succeeded when he raced to a 5-2 lead in the set, only to have that advantage quickly eroded as Oliel got back on serve at 4-5. However, Piros was able to break serve and clinch a hard-fought set to force the championship into a decider.

The final stanza began with both players showing maturity beyond their years, repeatedly holding serve and placing large amounts of pressure on each other.

However, in the sixth game, the Hungarian was able to break after an epic effort. The Oliel service game went for over five minutes, and Piros was able to fend off game points before converting his second break point.

Piros puts his win down to being the better defensive player on the day, admitting that Oliel came up with the better shots. He also said the sixth game of the final set was his best returning game.

Piros was able to run away with the set to claim the victory in only his second main draw at a junior Slam.
