Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Maldives to host tennis lessons with Czech tennis pro Lukáš Rosol
The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Maldives has announced plans to host tennis lessons with Czech professional tennis player Lukáš Rosol.
Rosol will be offering lessons to in-house guests at The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi from November 12-15.
Rosol competes on the ATP Challenger Tour and the ATP World Tour, both in singles and doubles. Rosol was coached by former Czech player, 1999 US Open quarterfinalist Ctislav Doseděl. His career-high singles ranking is World No. 26, achieved on September 22, 2014.
His first notable victory was against World No. 8 Jürgen Melzer at the 2011 French Open, whom he defeated in five sets in the second round a year after Melzer had reached the semi-final. A year later, Rosol defeated World No. 2 Rafael Nadal in the second round of Wimbledon to achieve one of the biggest wins in his career. Rosol has had sustained success since then, having played an integral part in the Czech Republic’s Davis Cup winning team in 2012, and winning his first tour-level title in April 2013.
Rosol also played in the longest ever ATP doubles match, alongside Tomáš Berdych, defeating Marco Chiudinelli and Stanislas Wawrinka in the first round of the 2013 Davis Cup. The match was played on February 2, 2013, lasting seven hours, two minutes. It was the second longest ATP match of any kind, after the Isner–Mahut match at the 2010 Wimbledon Championships.
Located amongst the unspoiled islands of Noonu atoll, a scenic 45-minute seaplane journey away from Male, The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi is where nature’s simplicity and beauty is in abundance – it’s a world away from the everyday.
