A painful defeat for Hurkacz, but it was not the end.  Great news, a record on the horizon

Hubert Hurkacz He has been in the top 10 of the ATP rankings for a long time. What previously seemed impossible is now clear, because the Pole is definitely one of the best tennis players in the world. Her greatest strength is, of course, her service. In this regard, no competitor in the world can match our player. Thanks to his serve, the Pole often wins the entire set, and this of course also translates into easier scoring.

Unfortunately, Hurkacz didn’t have that ease in the final two matches of the tournament ATP 1000 in Rome. Firstly, our player suffered terribly against Sebastian Baez in the 1/8 finals, but the Argentine was defeated thanks to the amazing physical preparation of Hurkač. In the quarter-finals, the Pole faced a bigger challenge, as he competed with Tommy Paul. The American, who is ranked 16th in the ATP rankings, promised to present a greater challenge.

Hurkacz returns to the “Eight”. There is a record on the horizon

This was indeed the case, although one might have the impression that if Hurkacz’s service had worked as we were accustomed to it, the American would have gone home tonight. Just look at the statistics. When Hurkacz wins just over 60 percent of the points after the first serve, something is clearly not working. For comparison, in the match against Rafael Nadal, this value was 83 percent and these numbers should be expected from the Pole. When this is not present, the match ends in a loss, like a ball match.

The Polish still returns from Rome with good experiences, because he reached the quarter-finals for the first time on local courts, which means that he will gain points in the ATP rankings. After this tournament, our player will get 155 points, which means that he currently has 3885 points, and this result means that with defeat Stefanosa Tsitsipasa In the quarterfinals against Nicolas Jarry, Hurkacz advanced to eighth in the ATP rankings, equaling the best result of his career.

The Greek lost 160 points because he reached the semi-finals in Rome last year. Currently, the Greek has 3,700 of them, and Casper Ruud would rank seventh ahead of the Pole in the latest ATP rankings. Looking to the near future, there is a really good chance that Hurkacz will move up to seventh place after the grand slam at Roland Garros. A year ago in Paris, the Pole was eliminated in the third round, and Ruud only lost in the final, so he defends a very large number of points, and The difference between the Polish and the Norwegian is currently only 300 points.
