Pierre-Hugues Herbert loses his marathon in the 1st round of Wimbledon against Pablo Andujar

Pierre-Hugues Herbert resisted for a long time, Tuesday, before cracking at the end of the suspense against Pablo Andujar (7-6 [7], 6-4, 7-6 [7], 5-7, 8-6) and as night approached on Wimbledon. The French, led twice (one set zero then two sets to one) by a solid Spaniard in the first round, had the strength to catch up on each time. In the fourth set, he even dismissed two first match points obtained by Andujar at 5-4.

In the fifth, the Frenchman again debroken his opponent while he was once again serving to win the game. But he ended up breaking a few games later on the third match point for the 70th world. The latter stretched out on the ground before being relieved by the Frenchman who had come to greet his executioner of the day.
