Victory and defeat is the balance sheet in Italy. Yannick Sener (No. 11 in the world) beat the Austrian 6-4, 6-2 Dennis Novak (No. 116 of the order). A controlled game for Jannik who, despite expressing a lower level of play than in previous versions, did not particularly suffer from his opponent. He conquered the quarters and challenged a thousand meanings against the Norwegian Casper Road (No. 8 in the world). The Scandinavian, like Yannick, aspires to qualify for the finals and win against her Lorenzo Sonego (No. 23 in the ranking) was significant. 7-5 4-6 6-4 The result is in Rod’s favour, and therefore a full direct match tomorrow.
The British player loses points in Turin Cameron Norrie, winner of the Indian Wells Masters1000 award. A match with an amazing result, where Nouri dominated in the first half with a score of 6-2, without losing any service points for seven consecutive rounds against the Canadian. Felix Auger-Aliassime (No. 14 ATP). In the second set tiebreak, with three match points available, the British tennis player did not force himself too much, bravely punishing North America (8-6). In the third fraction, the conclusion at 6-4 is full of bitterness for the 14th in the standings. Therefore, it will be the duty of Auger-Aliassime to face the fourth rank in the world Sasha Zverev. The German suffered more than expected against the Australian Alex de Minor (No. 32 in the order), mark it 6-2 3-6 6-2. It is not the transcendental performance of the Teutonic that nevertheless hits its target.
Top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas didn’t do the same. The Greek was surprised by the unpredictable Francis Tiafoe (#49 ATP), victorious 3-6 6-3, 6-4 in 1 hour 51 minutes of play. An unexpected result, the result of a great performance by an American and a subtle Greek. So it will be Tiafo who will play against the Argentine Diego Schwartzman (Seeded No. 8) Won 7-6 (5) 4-6 6-2 against the French Gael Moonves (World No. 21).
