Contract with Ibrokhimjon Urinov is signed
In December, Ibrokhimjon Urinov from Uzbekistan joined our team of promising players. In doubles, he plays with Aziz Dadabaev, with whom we signed a contract in the fall. Ibrahim is one of the best players of his age in the country.
We hope that the partnership with TokenStars will allow Ibrokhimjon to improve his skills and move faster to the high lines of the ATP rating.
“I am Ibrokhimjon Urinov, born on July 20, 2002, in the capital of Uzbekistan. I started my tennis career at the age of 7 with coach Ravshan Sultanov, who trains me to this day. At the age of 14, I went as the third number to the Davis Cup, where we took 9th place, then I played the finals in a pair and did not go further a quarter alone finals, at the age of 16, I also got to the Davis Cup with the 3rd number where we took 2nd place. When preparing for the World Group, I beat both the 2nd and 1st numbers and won 3 ITF in a row, won ITF in a pair. So I went as the first number to the Davis cup world, where I won 10th place. I had a tremendous experience, finishing 2018 tournaments in China, Thailand. I am still the first number in the age of 2002 to this day. In 2019, I started by winning the Futures, earning my first ATP points. At the end of the year, I played the Futures 25k doubles semi-finals and the futures 25k singles quarterfinals. Due to the pandemic, I did not play international tournaments in 2020. I hope 2021 will be successful for me.”

Fan communication activity with Alexey Sutormin
2020 has been a year of grappling with hardships for the entire planet. In the year that the word of the year has become “lockdown”, it is especially important to stay connected and support each other.
For the second time in the fan communications module, we held a campaign of congratulations with our PRO player Alexey Sutormin.
This year, Alexey has already recorded a congratulation for 7-year-old Yegor from Krasnoyarsk. Yegor’s mother decided to make such an unusual gift to her son. They got a new portion of New Year’s mood thanks to Alexey.
