After Idan Leshem's great victory in the ATP250 WATERGEN OPEN tournament, which promoted him to the main draw, for the second time in his career, he found out later that he will face no less than his good friend Yishai Oliel in the first round.
This happened, after Oliel's original opponent, the German Petar Goivcik (158 in the world), injured his hand and therefore withdrew from the tournament.
"I wasn't thinking about the third set, I was concentrating on my game," he said at a press conference after the game.
"Had a good game is a good feeling, it's always good to play in front of the home crowd, happy that I can continue at this level, you have to win yourself, you have to get used to it and from game to game I'm getting better."
When he played four matches in ten days here in Israel, the tennis player said: "Playing a lot of matches here gives me a lot of confidence, also that all my team behind me will sit with the team and come to understand why I have this drop in tension in the second set, something we will take into account and work on it."

At the end he said: "I have a big team behind me and the support I received from the union, it is very important to have as many tournaments as possible, it will contribute a lot to us, this is the level that exists in the world."
