At the Paris Rolex Masters 2021, two of the most anticipated tennis players, Andy Murray and Fabio Fognini, were immediately eliminated. Fognini fails to complete the comeback against Marton Fucsovics. Even if after a nightmare first set, the Italian finds himself serving for the match at the foot of the tie break in the third and managing a 3-2 lead, always with the serve available, in the final rush, and is sensationally defeated.
The Hungarian tennis player will challenge Novak Djokovic. The match between Domenik Koepfer and Murray in the final part of the day lights up Paris. The Scot recovers a set and a break behind, but does not take advantage of a total of seven match points!
An incredible waste. Two on 5-4 and five on 6-6. The 6-4 5-7 7-6 (9) that matures after more than three hours of play is a manifesto.
In the other matches, to challenge Casper Ruud will be Alexander Bublik, executioner of Dan Evans in comeback.
Cameron Norrie, on the other hand, starts well, getting rid of Federico Delbonis in the central part of the day with a very clear 6-2 6-1. Sebastian Korda does not immediately take advantage of a set and a break behind Aslan Karatsev, he wastes a handful of match points in the jeu decisif but still finds a solution in the final.
The final 6-2 6-7 (9) 7-6 (5) final is emblematic of the three hours of play.
