Tarpishchev called it pleasant that the Russian tennis player was able to win ahead of the first Grand Slam tournament of the season. “Although we call this tournament preparatory to the Australian Open, you also need to be able to win it. Aslan showed his class of play, which has grown compared to last year,” said Tarpishchev.
