Atp Bastad – Thiem at last! Wta Budapest, Cocciaretto also in the quarters

Thiem, the last but not least. The Austrian tennis star – but with due proportion – returns to the bigs after a comeback hampered by seven straight defeats on the major circuit and mediocre playing.

At addition to his victory over Emiil Ruusuvuori in Bastad, former world number three Roberto Bautista Agut is also noted in Bautista Agut’s diary of victims on the Bastad clay.

It is worth the fight to beat Sebastian Baez, who, like Casper Ruud before him, beat Monte-finalist Carlo’s of the “1000” Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, 7-6(4) 3-6 6-4, in the halfway point of the match.

In addition, it will be the first quarterfinal in almost a year for the 2020 Us Open champion. For example, it’s worth noting that Andrey Rublev overcame Federico Coria’s resistance by winning in overtime and the third set tie break.

Cocciaretto is also in the quarterfinals for Wta Budapest.

Martina Trevisan had already made it through to the second round, and Elisabetta Cocciaretto has done the same in Budapest. Defeating Katerina Siniakova in a wild 19-break encounter over 34 games took the Marche-based tennis player nearly three hours of play, but the final score of 7-5 4-6 7-5 was iconic, earning the Italian tennis player a matchup with Bernarda Pera in the next round.

Trevisan, seeded second, will instead face Anna Bondar. With another victory in the prestigious Hall of Fame competition, John Isner continues his “rebirth” on the lawns of Newport by defeating Benjamin Bonzi (in a third set tie break, of course).

This blunder by Felix Auger Aliassime against Jason Kubler, a grass ‘beast’ and especially an old hand in the round of 16 at the Championships, does not make much of a splash. Concrete from North America will be the focus of the Canadian’s exam.
