The final ATP250 event of the 2020 ATP Tour Calendar, the Sofia Open, was hit by a series of turmoil with top-seeded Denis Shapovalov and crashed in the opening round to Ladu Arbot 6-2 6-4 in Mordovia yesterday. I participated. Felix Auger Aliassime, second seeded, lost to Italian Salvatore Caruso, ranked 21 and 82 in the world, by his Canadian compatriots 6-4 6-4
I was confident not only in the serve but also in the stroke from the baseline, and there were no mistakes. Salvatore Cuomo
However, Canada still has representatives for flying maple leaves. That is, the unseeded Basekpospicil, which has expelled Germany’s fourth species, Jan Leonard Trough 6-36-4.
However, it was Italy’s day that Jannik Sinner joined Caruso in the last eight games and passed Swiss Lucky Loser entry Mark Andrea Husler 6-3 6-4.
“I think I played a really solid match. Today’s serve was very solid and I was confident not only in the serve but also in the stroke from the baseline, there was no mistake,” Caruso went to the quarterfinals. Then I commented.
“The energy level is good, I feel good on the court, sometimes I stay more in the rhythm and feel the court a little better so I prefer to play back to back. Physically feel good and tomorrow “I’m ready,” said Thinner, looking forward to a meeting with Alex Deminor, the third seed from Australia. He defeated Russia’s qualifier Karatzev in Asia 6-4 7-6 (5).
“I’m very happy with the victory over today’s very tough opponents. It was a very tricky match. I’m very happy to have won and made a very positive start to the Sofia Open.” De Minaur commented.
His next match with thinner should offer an interesting quarter-final clash. Caruso met Richard Gasquet, a veteran Frenchman who defeated Czech wildcard Dimital Jonas Foraytech 6-4 6-2.
But the last eight major clashes will undoubtedly occur between Pospisil and John Millman’s sixth seed, who won the Astana Open in Kazakhstan a week ago. Australians received rigorous training from wise French veteran Gilles Simon 7-5 6-7 (3) 6-2. This will be the longest match in event history in 3 hours and 15 minutes.
“I’m happy to win. I’m happy to stay here for a long time and I just need to recover,” Millman said.
The fourth quarter-final will take place between Albot and Adrian Manarino, France’s fifth seed, who passed Igorgerasimov 6-4 7-6 (5) in Belarus.
