The sensation of the Australian Open tennis tournament Aslan Karatsev from North Ossetia, right after the victory over the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, called his dad in Vladikavkaz. The father and first coach of the new sports star Kazbek Karatsev told AiF-SK about this.
“He called me, I congratulated him, said that Alexander Zhukov would call now (First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, member of the International Olympic Committee, – ed.)“, – said Karatsev Sr.
So far, he does not give interviews, as he believes that nothing should distract his son on the way to victory.
“I have to coordinate this issue with him. Finish playing – then please. Now he should only think about the game, “Kazbek told the AiF-SK correspondent by phone.
