Tuesday July 26
Coming to fight in the superb setting of Umag, Corentin Moutet passes his first while beating the German Daniel Altmaier, TDS 6, ATP 65, 6/4 6/2.
Norbert Gombos (SVK), drafted, eliminates a Federico Delbonis (ARG) with a big loss of confidence: 6/4 5/7 6/4. And Facundo Bagnis, another Argentinian, qualifies by taking out his compatriot Tomas Martin Etcheverry 7/5 6/3
Wednesday July 27
The young Dane, who had amazed and atomized the world at Roland Garros, has not won a match since his epic. Nothing on grass, a defeat in Bastad against Huesler, one in Hamburg against Griekspoor and another today against Bernabe Zapata Miralles 3/6 6/3 6/2.
Roberto Carballes Baena signs a nice performance by eliminating the TDS 5 Alex Molcan on the same score 3/6 6/3 6/2. The talented Giulio Zeppieri continues his journey by eliminating Daniel Elahi Galan.
In the evening Jannik Sinner faces Jaume Munar and wins as boss 6/4 6/4.
Thursday July 28
Superb day for the two Italian qualifiers Franco Agamennon and Marco Cecchinato. The first named managed the best performance of his career by beating Sebastian Baez (ARG) 3/6 6/1 7/5.
The second surprises the winner of Bastad, Lorenzo Musetti, 6/4 6/3. Disappointment for Corentin Moutet who let slip a good opportunity against the Argentinian Facundo Bagnis (ATP 120), wide winner 6/3 6/1.
Carlos Alcaraz plays in the evening against Norbert Gombos and will not leave much to his rival, the score: 6/2 6/3
Friday July 29: The 1/4 finals
Carlos Alcaraz (ESP) vs Facundo Bagnis (ARG): 6/0 6/4
The seeded No. 1, new 5th at ATP, destroyed the Argentinian in the first set before relaxing a little, logically, in the second round.
Bernabe Zapata Miralles (ESP) vs Giulio Zeppieri (ITA) : 5/7 4/6
168th in the world, only 20 years old, Zeppieri signs his best pro result and above all confirms in broad daylight the promises seen in Challengers in recent weeks.
Marco Cecchinato (ITA) vs. Franco Agamenone (ITA) : 2/6 1/6
29 years old, 136th in the world, the Italian succeeds in the best tournament of his career, late in life, and easily dominates his compatriot.
Roberto Carballes Baena (ESP) vs Jannik Sinner (ITA) : 4/6 6/7
Solid on his serve, solid on the important points, the Italian No. 1 moves on to the next round.
Saturday July 30: The 1/2 finals
Carlos Alcaraz vs Giulio Zeppieri: 7/5 4/6 6/3
Big favorite of this match, the Spaniard had a lot of difficulties to dismiss this Italian full of talent, who should not take too long to find a place on the ATP circuit.
Franco Agamenone vs. Jannik Sinner: 1/6 3/6
This unbalanced meeting on paper was also unbalanced on the court with a Sinner much too strong for his rival, who had never reached this level on the ATP circuit.
