Alexander Davidovich he met a hard bone in his debut at the ATP 500 Rotterdam (Netherlands) and was about to gnaw it. The Malaga led Stefanos Tsitsipas, world number four and top seed, to a third set but ended up losing 7-5, 6-7 (1) and 6-4 in 2:36. The Greek, who reappeared after losing in the semifinals of the Australian Open against Daniil Medvedev in a great battle, suffered to defeat Davidovich (22 years old and 46th). A strange and hard game for fast court, because Tsitsipas achieved six breaks for four of the Spanish. The Hellene’s 15 aces helped him get out of trouble at times.
In Buenos Aires, Jaume Munar defeated Argentine Marcelo Etcheverry for a double 6-4 and Albert Ramos paid for the effort in the Córdoba final in which he was crowned champion and fell 6-3 and 6-3 against Thiago Monteiro.
