Pablo Andújar wins a new award for perseverance

Pablo Andújar is one of those tennis players who stands out for having an exemplary work ethic and effort on the circuit. At 35 years old and after overcoming injuries that kept him out of play for many months in past seasons, the man from Cuenca does not stop fighting. This Thursday he qualified for the third round of the Australian Open for the first time with a victory in four sets (6-4, 7-6 (6), 0-6 and 6-1) and just over three hours against the Slovakian Alex Molcan (24th and 74th in the world). He will face the Polish Majchrzak or the Australian De Miñaur on Friday.

Andújar’s performance, who provisionally rises to 75th place in the ranking, stood out for his ability to defend break points. He saved 14 of the 18 that Molcan tried to convert. With intelligence, Pablo allowed his rival to endorse a donut in a third set that had escaped him at the beginning, and in the fourth he finished off a fantastic job that gave him the best result of his career in the oceanic Grand Slam.
