Pavlasek hoping to burst back into top 100

20th March 2020, 16:19 by Bobbie Jackson

Adam Pavlasek has been working with a mental coach to boost his chances of returning to the top 100.

The 25-year-old has yet to make it further than the second round at a Grand Slam event but he climbed to number 72 in the world in 2017.

Injuries have disrupted Pavlasek's career over the past couple of seasons and that has seen him slide down to world number 386.

Pavlasek is determined to shoot back up the rankings and claims he has been working with a mental coach to ensure he can be in the best shape when the ATP Tour gets back underway.

"It has always kept me afloat that I've been there once, and when I am healthy, I will give tennis everything that should the toil always proves," Pavlasek said.

"He taught me a lot of things, even outside tennis. How to behave, how to treat people. And I am extremely happy for that. I got to the bottom and I try to lift it back, step by step. If I am healthy, I believe I will succeed."
