The illusion of bragadense Genaro Olivieri to play his first main draw in a Grand Slam of tennis, he stayed today in the first round of the Wimbledon classification, when he fell against the Brazilian Matheus Pucinelli de Almeidaby 6/3 and 6/2.
Olivieri, 23, was looking to become the first racket from his city to play in a major on the world circuit, but collided with Pucinelli, who showed better adaptation to the grass surface where the prestigious championship in London, England is played.
The one from Bragado he achieved an effectiveness of 70% of his service, a key item to compete on grass, but he conceded 7 break chances, of which his rival capitalized on 3to mark superiority on the scoreboard.
Pucinelli, for his part, he did not give his rival a chance to break the service and made the difference in points won with the return, with 20 in his favor against just 8 for Olivieri.
Thus, the Bragadense’s dream of reaching the Wimbledon main draw, which will begin next Monday, with Serbian Novak Djokovic as defending champion, was shipwrecked. However, Olivieri fulfilled the objective of getting into the classification of the grand slam, which had been drawn up weeks ago, when he undertook a new European tour of challenger tournaments.
