Felix Agger-Aliasim rubbed his shoulders with a player to be eliminated in the quarterfinals of the ATP 500 tournament in Barcelona on Friday.
In a meeting that lasted 1 hour 23 minutes, Quebecar lost 6-3 to Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas. A duel in front of a small audience honoring the physical distance in the stands.
After losing the first two shocks against Agar-Aliasim among the experts, Citsipas won the last four.
The FAA’s lack of opportunism was the main reason for this defeat. There was a decisive sequence in the first moments of the confrontation.
With a 1-0 lead and a 0-40 score, the 10th seed of the tournament missed out on a golden opportunity to break the citsipas to gain control of the first set. Subsequently, he was unable to take advantage of the other broken balls in the game.
“I handled this situation well to win my serve,” said Citsipas, who won his eighth game in a row. It helped keep me in the game and allowed me to break it later. I was not afraid. I know what I’m doing. “
Then, with a 2-2 tie, Agar-
Aliasim is not up to work. He suffered a double fault along with making some mistakes to give the second seed a break on the silver field.
From that moment on, we felt that Fred Fontang’s protege was mentally broken. Tsitsipas did not ask big and the winner of Monte-Carlo won 6-3 and closed the books in the first round.
Second, history repeats itself for Quebec. He does not know how to use the opportunities to repel the tides.
Agar-Aliasim have had a prestigious tournament in Barcelona. He recorded his first two wins of the season on clay. After defeating French player Jeremy Chardy, he defeated his friend Denis Shapovalov.
The 20th player in the world can positively assess his time in Barcelona. After a week of vacation, he travels to Madrid to take part in another clay court tournament.
Against the sinner
As for Tsitsipas, he will try to qualify for the final by facing Italian Janic Sinner, who fell to Russian Andrei Rublev.
This is the second of many events in which he has competed in the final. The Greek has been on a winning streak since he won the last 14 rounds he played.
“It’s good to play the way I do,” he added. I believe my winning streak can continue. “
He plays with confidence and who will stop him on the clay. He is settling into one of his favorites to win Roland Garros in Paris in a few weeks.
