Cristina Bucsa retires in the first round of Courmayeur

Spanish tennis player Cristina Bucsa withdrew from her match in the first round of the Courmayeur Tournament (Italy) against Chinese Wang Xing. The Spanish, number 157 in the world, could not finish a match that was dominated from the beginning by her rival Xing, number 110 in the WTA ranking.

Bucsa only won one game in the first set (6-1) and did not debut his score in the second set, in which he retired 5-0 against. Xing, therefore, qualifies to contest the round of 16He, where he expects a rival, who will come out of the confrontation between the Italian Jessica Pieri and the Chinese Shuai Zhang.

The Spanish, number 58 in the ATP ranking, lost his serve twice in the first stake to one of his rival, something that was enough for Paul to win the first set (3-6).

In the second set, the American, number 54 in the world, prevailed with his serve and broke Martinez again twice to take the final set (2-6) and certify his pass to the round of 16 after almost an hour and a half meeting. Paul expects rival in round of 16, which will come out of the confrontation between the American -5th seed- Taylor Harry Fritz and the Finn Emil Ruusuvuori.
