ATP Acapulco, crazy feats by Arnaldi and Cobolli: Fritz and Auger-Aliassime swept away

0 SHARES

Matteo Arnaldi and Flavio Cobolli achieved two splendid victories in the ATP 500 in Acapulco . During the Italian night the two Italians eliminated respectively Taylor Fritz , number 10 in the world, and Felix Auger-Aliassime , former top ten and still placed in the top 30. Italian tennis continues to reap successes.

The Acapulco tournament is one of the most tiring ever for tennis players. Last year three of the four semi-finalists had serious problems during their matches. It's very hot, there's a lot of humidity and you play between the evening and night, and this exacerbates a series of problems. Surprises are the order of the day and the ability to adapt is fundamental. But above all you have to play well and win, even against predictions.

Arnaldi took to the court last and did so against Fritz, a high-level American player, who played a splendid Australian Open and was fresh from success in Delray Beach . The Ligurian starts well, wins the first set and holds his own when Fritz brings home the second.

In the third Arnaldi puts his opponent on the ropes with a varied game, raises the level and punishes him with a couple of very high school plays. The final score was 6-4 4-6 6-3. Second career victory against a top ten team and qualification for the round of 16, he will challenge another American player, the fearsome Shelton, who emerged victorious from a battle with Evans.

Practically at the same time, Flavio Cobolli, who passed the qualifications, beat Felix Auger-Aliassime in a comeback. The Roman, after losing the first set 6-2, changes pace and leaves no chance for the Canadian who has to take a 6-3 6-2 in the following sets. First career success against a top 30 for Cobolli who will take the field on Wednesday against Tsitsipas or the Russian Safiullin .
