MADRID, 17 (EUROPA PRESS)
Pablo Carreño, brand new champion of Montreal, could not continue his good moment at the Lindner Family Tennis Center and fell at the hands of Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic in three sets (1-6, 7-5 and 7-6 (4)), After almost three hours of play and a comeback that the man from Gijón will not forget.
The Olympic bronze medalist gave up his serve after having played with fire in the twelfth set and -in the end- final, giving wings to a Kecmanovic who forced sudden death in the third set to keep the ticket to the second round.
Nor could Albert Ramos overcome his debut, who clearly lost to the Italian Fabio Fognini in two sets (6-2 and 6-3) in just 1 hour and 19 minutes of play; in the same way as Alejandro Davidovich, who also said goodbye to Cicinnati in two rounds (7-5 and 6-4) against the Australian Nick Kyrgios.
In this way, the ‘Armada’ keeps half of the tennis players who started the American tournament: Roberto Bautista, who debuted with victory last Monday, and Carlos Alcaraz and Rafael Nadal, who will debut this Wednesday as they are exempt from the first round.
