Francisco Cerundolo believes he has what it takes to compete against any player on the Tour after beating Rafael Nadal. Cerundolo’s Wimbledon draw did not go well, as he was drawn against the record-setting 22-time Grand Slam champion Nadal in the opening round.
Cerundolo beat Nadal in four sets, 6-4 6-3 3-6 6-4, despite the fact that he was the heavy underdog going into the match. Cerundolo won his first ATP title in Bastad, his first tournament since Wimbledon, in his first appearance since Wimbledon.
“In a variety of ways, that match benefited me. The fact that I was able to maintain my composure and not crumble under the pressure of playing in front of a sold-out Wimbledon crowd and against Rafa made me confident that I could compete anywhere “Cerundolo told La Nacion, according to Sportskeeda’s report.
Sebastian Baez lost to Cerundolo in the Bastad final.
Argentinean Cerundolo Baez was defeated 7-6 (4), 6-2 by his countryman in the Bastad finals on Sunday. “It’s an incredible feeling, “Following his first ATP title, Cerundolo had this to say about the experience. “In the beginning, I’d just like to congratulate Sebastian.
Since last year, you’ve been playing exceptionally well. It means a lot to be crowned champion. When you’re a kid, you dream of competing in these competitions and reaching the championships. Even though I was heartbroken when I lost in Buenos Aires, I learned a lot from the experience.
The day after I used it, “I think I had a fantastic match and a fantastic week,” It was only one of Cerundolo’s five matches that went to three sets before he won Bastad. Cerundolo is now focused on his upcoming performance in Hamburg.
Cerundolo will face Daniel Altmaier in the first round of the Hamburg tournament. Cerundolo’s progress in Hamburg this week is still up in the air.
