LE SCAN SPORT – Beaten in the round of 16 at Monte Carlo in three sets, the Indian player did not realize it right away.

Usually, when a tennis match ends, the two opponents immediately come together at the net to shake hands. But the Indian Sumit Nagal wanted to make the pleasure last. The latter took a while to understand his defeat and made Rune wait a few seconds. The scene took place this Thursday in Monte Carlo.

The Dane ousted the Indian in three sets (6-3, 3-6, 6.2) in just over two hours of match. In the round of 16 of the Masters 1000, he will meet world number 10 Hubert Hurkacz, who defeated Bautista.
