Throughout the tournament week, the current captain of the Russian national team at the Fed Cup, Igor Andreev, followed the Russians success. «It's great that a tennis tournament was made in such a beautiful place, a rather respectable tennis had been this whole week. I am glad that Nastya Potapova reached the semifinals. So only the best impressions. If earlier in Jurmala were held only musical events, now there is also a world-class sport event, players come from different parts of the world and play at a professional level. I think that it is very important for the development of tennis in Latvia and the neighbouring countries», – said Igor Andreev.
«I am amazed by the changes that have happened here, I played the Pro Am tournament here myself two years ago, this tennis center has changed a lot. Jurmala has always been the center of attraction for tennis back in Soviet times and, I hope, it will get this status back. Because of the climate, of course, the conditions are unique. Not without reason hockey players and other athletes are having training camps here, the air here is wonderful, you recover here not in hours, but in minutes, thanks to the stunning microclimate. At first impression, I can say that the surface is high-quality», – said about his impressions Igor Kunitsyn, a two-time winner of the ATP singles tournaments.
