On Saturday, Hurkacz, after a great match, won in the semifinals over Aleksandr Bublik 6: 4, 7: 6 (7-4). Both tennis players, especially in the second set, created an amazing spectacle, dazzling with their exciting play. The victory of the Pole was all the more satisfying, because from the very beginning the tournament, in which he was “number one”, was a test of strength for him. In the previous two confrontations, only the third group determined the winner.
Wroclaw’s opponent in the match for the title was Benjamin Ponzi, 60th in the ATP rankings, who was set to play in the main event final for the second time in his career, after defeating Jan in Pune, India. The gentlemen encountered each other for the first time.
The start of the meeting was uneventful, although the greater experience of the world’s eleventh bat was evident. The Frenchman successfully defended his first serve, but not the next one – Hurkacz managed to surprise the opponent and avoid mistakes, was effective in serving and scored aces. He was clearly very focused. The score 4: 1 after the first five matches gave hope for a quick set.
However, supported by the Marseille crowd, Ponzi never thought of giving up. On the other hand, the candidate began to make minor mistakes, for which he quickly avenged himself with a break … to which he responded in the best possible way. The crowd’s frenzy of joy was short-lived, as the missed pass was a rag to Thor. 5: 3 Then unsuccessful attempts to surprise the opponent by a tennis player from Nimes and a set by Hurkacz!
Hubert Hurkacz won the sixth title of his career
In the second group, the competition became even more fierce. Both players began to impress, at the crucial moments after their serve they did not give any chance to the opponent. Faster, stronger and more attractive – this is how the first seven Games sounded, which the audience cheered after every point. It was indeed a match worthy of the final.
As in the meeting with Bublik, in the second set it looked like a tiebreaker would be needed to determine the winner. Both players did not give up matches on their serve until the end of the set. In crucial moments, Hurkacz shone with his first serve.
The tiebreaker, like the entire second set, was very even. Both players served well, but at the decisive moment it was the Pole who served himself better and won the match, and therefore the entire tournament! This is his sixth professional title!
