12:21 – The script does not change

Baez concedes the crumbs to Zverev’s answer: excluding the tiebreaker, the German managed to add just two points. However, the German hits his first serve well, keeping the Argentine at a safe distance in his batting rounds. 2-2, still no game resolved in favor, it’s a strange game.

Fognini-Sinner, derby with a view to the round of 16: when and where to see it


12:05 – Zverev wins the tiebreak in the 1st set

What an exciting tiebreaker! Zverev takes the lead by two minibreaks, but Báez has personality to recover from 2-6 to 6-6. But immediately after reaching the new equilibrium, a science fiction counterattack assigns the decisive mini-break to the German. Zverev takes the first set on fifth set point, 8-6.

11:56 – Let’s go to the tiebreaker

No game decided by the advantages, now Zverev tries to redeem a deaf start to the tie break. The German scored just one return point in the entire set, after 36 minutes of play. Sascha is clumsy in his movements and little organized in the appointment with the ball and in the net. Báez prevails in the construction of the point from below.

11:40 – Baez unplayable!

Four service rounds held to zero, Zverev is yet to score a return point. I begin the sprint of the Argentine, who even manages to press quite a bit in response. Score stuck at 4-4, with Sascha who, however, is losing on points…

11:21 – What a departure from Baez

Two service shifts kept to zero for the Argentine, who capitalized on the German’s drowsiness in response to this start. At that point, Sascha still has to feed, but he has already put a lot of weight on his serve, successfully stopping the opponent. 2-1 Báez, we proceed to serve.

11:05 – Zverev-Baez

Sascha makes his debut at the Foro Italico, but it won’t be easy against Báez: the Argentine has already played three games in Rome (two qualifiers and the first round), is coming off a title won on clay in Estoril and presents himself with a noticeable better ranking (37). We’ll see if Zverev suffers the scum of the Madrid final…

10:15 – SUMMARY DAY 2

Close of the first round and some matches of the second round. As for the Italian colors, Sinner won and challenges Fognini. Tonight at 19:00 the appointment. All easy for Djokovic, who beats Karatsev in straight sets. The news is in two thick falls: Hurkacz lost to Goffin, who had already made Nadal sweat in Madrid. But above all Rublev dated Krajinovic, thus freeing up Fognini’s or Sinner’s octave, making it theoretically more affordable. Monte Carlo finalist is also out Davidovich Fokinabut with Auger-Aliassime it was not an easy match.

10:05 – LIVE! DAY 3
