ATP Cup Perth and breaking top 50

Norway was the last team to qualify to ATP Cup due to Switzerland´s withdrawal.

We were very excited to be a part of this new event and went to Perth with a very young team. We arrived Perth early to get ready and acclimatize due to very different conditions from winter in Norway.

We were in a tough group with Italy, USA and Russia but we were ready to fight.

After three game days, I had beaten two top 20 players for the first time in Isner and Fognini and lost to Medvedev . Norway won against USA 2-1, lost to Italy 1-2 and lost to Russia 0-3.

After my top 20 wins, I also broke into top 50 and another intermediate objective was reached.

It was a great event for the players and the fans. When you play for your country it is special.
