The Italian derby against Andreas Seppi goes to Syracuse tennis player Salvatore Caruso. The Sicilian tennis player defeated the Bolzano player in the end of two fighting sets, 7-5; 7-6 (a 7-5 tie-breaker won) in one hour and fifty minutes, in the first round match of the Great Ocean Road Open, one of the two ATP 250 Championships (with a prize pool of $ 382,575) scheduled simultaneously, on the stadiums Solid in Melbourne Park, where the Australian Open will kick off on February 8th.
It should be noted that in the second set, Caruso canceled three fixed points for the thirty-six-year-old tennis player from Caldaro. In the next round (Wednesday 3 February), the Avola player will challenge one between American Tennessee Sandgren and local wildcard John Smith.
At the end of the match, Salvatore Caruso analyzed the match:It wasn’t a great game, there were many mistakes on both sides. But it was important to win and I’m happy to bring him home. Andreas was to me a player that I took as an example from an early age. I’ve always appreciated him for the way he plays and as a person, so I have a lot of respect for him. Now I look forward and focus on the matchday two“.
