Alex Donski from Operation Liftoff Earns a WC into ATP 250 Sofia


New User
I watched Alex Donski (BUL, ATP 1572) win his first ATP point on Operation Liftoff (him and his cousin Lazar's YouTube Channel) back in June of last year when he was 18. He got a second point a little later that summer but kind of got stuck in the qualies at Futures for the rest of the year.

He just won the Bulgarian Indoor National Championships beating 4 guys in a row with ATP rankings (3 of them have played on Bulgaria's Davis Cup Team) and got a wildcard into main draw of the ATP 250 tournament in Sofia! The other guy who's getting a WC into the main draw is Dimitar Kuzmanov who's ranked a lot higher than he is at 366.

2018 Bulgarian Indoor National Championships (23-28 January)

R16 - 6-4, 6-4 vs Zlatan Palazov (ATP 1595)
QF - 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 vs Alexandar Lazarov (2) (ATP 751, DC Team)
SF - 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 vs Vasko Mladenov (4) (ATP 1072, DC Team)
W - 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 vs Aleksandar Lazov (1) (ATP 472, DC Team)

Not bad for a 19 y/o kid who only won 2 ATP points in 18 Futures tournaments in 2017
