Index – Sport – Márton Fucsovics saved six set points and won in two games in Bucharest

Our country’s current number two male tennis player is competing in the 250-category tournament in Bucharest this week, in which he is the main draw by right of subject. After the draw, it was revealed that his first-round opponent will be Valentin Vacherot, who last week faced top-10 ranked Grigor Drimitrov in Monte Carlo – and lost in two sets.

Despite the fact that the Hungarian tennis player reached the quarterfinals in Estoril just two weeks ago, the match on Tuesday morning did not start well for him, as he failed his second service game, so the Monaco player lost 4:1. However, Vacherot could not hold his advantage for long, Fucsovics broke back, and after a marathon game – the score was tied 10 times – he held his serve. The set was decided in short order, in which Vacherot went 6–0, but it was not enough for him to win the set.

Fucsovics saved a total of six set points, and then he already sold the third opportunity, so he won the game in 1 hour and 32 minutes.

The continuation was much more one-sided than this, Fucsovics absolutely controlled the match, quickly gained an advantage within the set, and then took his rival’s serve one more time. Vacherot didn’t even reach a match point in the second set, the Hungarian tennis player won the set 6:2 and at the same time advanced to the second round.

Fucsovics’ next opponent will be Taloon Griekspoor, the second seed of the tournament, 25th in the world ranking – on Thursday.
