Sonego, Atp 250, too awful to be true: straight out

Disaster struck Lorenzo Sonego during the Atp250’s opening round in Gstaad. The Turinese sent Juan Pablo Varillas from Peru out right away. The final score of the game in Switzerland is 76(5) 62. He will go up against Roberto Bautista Agut in the following round.

The contest was a poor start for Sonego, who was immediately replaced by Peruvian Varillas in the first half. Even though the Italian had superior talent and more professional experience, he was unable to make an impression.

Lorenzo, though, is the first player to have an opportunity to take a break lead in the first set, but he chooses not to. He fails to serve in the ensuing service round and falls behind 5-2. Varillas, though, does not end the match right away and makes up for it. The tiebreak will then decide the game (despite a set point in favor of the Peruvian in the 12th game). It is only a matter of time before he wins the partial with a score of 76 on the fourth set point (5).

Second set, one-sided. Varillas concedes our holder’s crumbs and finds himself serving for the match with the score at 5-2. The fifth match point is a good one to get in the challenge with the Italian as the underdog: the final score was 76(5) 62.

The second round of the Swiss Atp250 will now have the Peruvian taking on Bautista Agut.
