Besides the title the Russian played in his first ever Grand Slam final which he did at the US Open here he defeated G. Dimitrov in the semi-final but lost to R. Nadal in the final match after five sets.
Pospisil used to be considered as one of young talents but it turned out that his results didn’t fulfil great expectations. He occasionally made a good result but it is hard to find a noteworthy result made by the Canadian lately. Pospisil currently held 248th place in the ATP list speaks volumes about his shape.
