It’s instantly good tennis, and it’s an instant battle. Blue has a break point in the first game but the Buenos Aires player is serving well. Cerundolo maintains a good rhythm and in the second match is stimulated by a millimeter backhand that excites even the many (but still noisy) Argentines in the Unipol Arena: thus there are two break opportunities for him as well, but Sinner’s service is no exception (Including heavy seconds on the body).

Then Cerundolo tries to change the match for the next match and already finds the first half of his match. Deep answers where blue doesn’t find the right time are crucial, but it’s also an excellent exchange where the Argentine makes a good short ball and Sinner is inaccurate with the wet counter. Yannick reacts immediately but Cerondolo is now confident and first cancels a break point and then closes the match with a superb backhand in the longline. With a backhand, the Argentine keeps the exchange well and responds well, so much so that he gets another break with the group mortgage.. Francisco is in bliss and in fact also has two chances to get bread. However, Jannik has no intention of giving up. Anyway, Cerundolo closes the group soon 6-1.
The Argentine is still trying to make a big sound at the start of the third set, but from 15-30 he discovers Sener Three basic first Which is worth many points. Attitudelight blue Now it looks different from the second part: More active, more suggestionbraver.

Thanks to the superb damping, the Italian gets a sixth chance to come close and win thanks to the fourth ace in his game.
This is the first Hot considerations de Jannick: “I didn’t play well, but I tried to stay there as much as possible. Playing at home is very special, my team was very important and supported me a lot. It’s an important victory not only for me, but for the whole of Italy. It wasn’t easy, I tried to push but I didn’t always succeed. I I served very well in some moments and others, like the end of the third, where I served worse. But it’s part of the sport. Malaga is definitely our target, maybe I got here a bit late but I recovered physically. Sunday is another tough game, even if Today was still a high level doubling.”.
