Another medal on the account of Mikhail Paykov, together with Alexei Liventsov, he became second in men's doubles.
In singles, Paikov reached the quarterfinals. He lost to Nikita Artemenko in the semifinals. Danila Travin is another UMMC tennis player who entered the top eight of the country's strongest tennis players. He beat Grigory Vlasov and Denis Ivonin, but he lacked quite a bit in a meeting with experienced Andrei Baibuldin.
“I am very pleased with how Travin performed, of course, he could beat Baibuldin and win a medal, but, most importantly, I see its growth, this result is good prospects for the future. Alexander Tyutryumov was second last year, but here he was not lucky with the net, for reaching the top eight he played with Kirill Skachkov, who is now in excellent shape. The national team of the Sverdlovsk region came in fifth, like last year, and this, I think, is also a good result. Artur Abusev was not in the team, probably somewhere he was a little lacking. But even with this composition, the athletes fought, only with a score of 2: 3 yielding to last year's champion - the St. Petersburg team, ”summed up the coach of the UMMC and the men's team of the Sverdlovsk region Andrei Kulkov.
Kirill Skachkov from Moscow became the champion of the country ... A month earlier, he won a ticket to the Olympic Games in Tokyo and now has once again confirmed the title of the country's strongest tennis player. Olga Vorobyova from Krasnodar became the best among women, this is her third title of the champion of Russia.
