With fewer difficulties than anticipated, Pablo Carreño added the first point of the ATP Cup semifinal tie for Spain, at the Ken Rosewall Arena in Sydney. The man from Gijón was going to face Kamil Majchrzak (117th), who had solved their three singles matches in the group stage with victory and beat them in 2015, in a Challenger, by a double 6-1. But Trybunalski’s tennis player was low at the last minute having tested positive for COVID and Carreño faced and surpassed Jan Zielinski without problems (6-2 and 6-1 in 53 minutes), a doubles player who ate the brown of facing the world number 19 when he is 860th in the singles rankings. Roberto Bautista will try to put the national team in the final in his duel against Hubert Hurkacz.

The Asturian, more and more intoned, ruthlessly destroyed him as he interpreted with great success (only five unforced errors) and hit (24 winning shots) the game of frequent uploads to the network of the Pole, who had no choice but to gamble with the weapons he uses in pairs.

“I am sorry to announce that I have tested positive for COVID. That has forced me to withdraw from the ATP Cup. I am following all the protocols, including isolation and warning all the people with whom I have had contact. The Polish team has also taken the necessary steps. I am glad that they are all well and ready for the games. I am experiencing minor symptoms, waiting to be able to get back on the slopes as soon as Australian safety protocols allow, “Majchrzak explained.
