Andújar falls before the leader of the year on land and Bautista before the 150th

Andújar falls before the leader of the year on land: Argentine Delbonis

Three days after winning the world number four and a two-time Roland Garros finalist, Pablo Andújar fell in the second round to the 51st in the ranking, Federico Delbonis, 4-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 and 6-2 in 3:23. Tennis has these things and many times there is no big or small enemy, but rather inspirational or unfortunate moments. The Spanish, who had been able to rest after the beating that was given to overcome the Austrian, just days after the biggest win of his career against Roger Federer in Geneva, did not find a way to stop the leader of the year in victories on gravel, which with this Wednesday already accumulates 18.

And that the game was a very good time for Andújar, who dominated in the first set with some ease. But then Delbonis woken up and showed how rocky and uncomfortable it is, with that strange serve mechanic, tiring even for his rivals, but effective. In fact, he closed the victory with an ace, his 14th in the match. Before he had broken the Cuenca serve nine times. So it was very difficult for him to miss the game. The funny thing is that Andújar dominated the face-to-face 3-1, although it is true that Delbonis had won last year in his last duel, in Sardinia. The Azul player will face in the third round, a height he reaches for the first time in the tournament, he will face Fognini or Fucsovics.

Bautista crashes before Laaksonen

Roberto Bautista, eleventh seed, is not quite comfortable at the Grand Slams this year. He fell in the first round of the Australian Open and at Roland Garros he says goodbye in the second after falling against 150th in the world, Henri Laaksonen, 29-year-old Swiss who played the game of his life to win 6-2, 2-6, 6-3 and 6-2 in 2:21. Laaksonen, who had never gone this far in a major, gave Bautista 53 winners, nine of them direct service, and broke the Spanish six times, who had a very bad day in that regard, three of them in the fourth set. The Helvetian will face Khachanov or Nishikori. “Tennis is very difficult, tremendously complicated and I have played against an opponent who has played very well, very aggressive, who has been very successful. I’m going screwed because I haven’t been able to prevent the party from depending on him. I am upset and sad, but it is what it is, I have to accept the situation and turn the page. I leave with feelings that are not the ones I had during these months, ”explained Bautista.
