IMAGO / Hasenkopf

Marc-Andera Hüsler (ATP 47) moves into the 2nd round in Miami. For a long time it looked as if the 26-year-old would fail early on. But the Swiss used the last opportunity in the 2nd set to break Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ATP 51). Unlike in the first round, the Swiss had more success in the subsequent tie-break and saved himself in the deciding set.

In this he gave the Spaniard no chance and took three service games from the 35-year-old. After 2 hours and 36 minutes, Hüsler secured the 6:7 (4:7), 7:6 (7:2), 6:3 victory with the first match ball. The Zurich native won a game on the ATP tour for the first time since the beginning of February. Most recently, Hüsler failed four times in a row in the first round. The next opponent of the Swiss is Tommy Paul (USA/ATP 19).

Redemption for Golubic

Viktorija Golubic (WTA 116) also experienced a sense of achievement that has recently become rare. The 30-year-old from Zurich celebrated a 7:6 (7:3), 6:1 victory over the American Hailey Baptiste (WTA 280) in the first round in Florida.

In the first set, the Swiss qualifier had to go into the tiebreak despite a 4-0 lead. She conceded a break in the second round before she conceded nine points to her opponent and scored the first match point after 96 minutes.

The next opponent is number 12 seeded Ludmilla Samsonowa (WTA 15). Golubic decided the only duel with the 24-year-old Russian in June 2019 in Nottingham on grass in three sets in her favour.

Teichmann has no chance

Jil Teichmann’s performance in Miami lasted just under an hour. The world number 32 had to admit defeat in the first round Karolina Muchova (WTA 55) 0:6 and 2:6. The Czech, often plagued by injuries in the recent past, dominated the Swiss in every respect.

Teichmann had to accept a total of five service breakthroughs. Muchova, who had to contest the qualification, ended the game with the first match point.
