“I was calmer than yesterday. Unfortunately only one break was decisive for the first set. He broke me early in the second. He started to play better, I was under pressure. I am happy that I was able to make a break too, but it was not enough. Playing in such an Arena and before home crowd. I am really thankful to BFT and Garanti Koza for this opportunity”, commented Kuzmanov.On Thursday he and his partner Aleksander Lazov will play their second doubles match.
