Wimbledon: Murray did violence

His slump in the third set could have cost him dearly, but Andy Murray ultimately did not miss his Wimbledon debut on Monday.

While leading 6-4, 6-3, 5-0 against Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili, the Scot was suddenly feverish, abandoning this third act to finally win in four sets (6-4, 6 -3, 5-7, 6-3), after 3h32 of exchanges.

It also happened in four sets for two players classified by the top ten seeds: Andrey Rublev and Roberto Bautista Agut. The Russian (no.5) defeated Federico Delbonis by the score of 4-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 in 2:16. He lost the first set then was hung up 2-2 in the second, before unrolling his tennis. The Spaniard (n ° 8) spent 3 hours on the court to get rid of John Millman: 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6. “RBA” got scared in the fourth set, where he trailed 4-2, before coming back.

Sinner doesn’t have a green thumb

Brilliant on clay, Jannik Sinner and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, respectively No. 19 and 30 seeded, have more difficulty on grass where they both disappeared in the first round here at the All England Club. The Italian was eliminated 5-7, 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 by the Hungarian Marton Fucsovics, in a match where he had 19 break points to defend (only 10 saved).

The Spaniard, weighed down by his 12 double faults, battled for five sets and 3:17 of play against Denis Kudla (114th), leading two sets to zero before losing 5-7, 4-6, 7 -6, 6-3, 6-3. He was three points from the win when he led 4-2 in the third set tie-break, but lost five points in a row and then collapsed. Another seed was eliminated, in the person of Reilly Opelka (n ° 27), who fell in three sets against Dominik Koepfer (6-4, 7-6, 6-2) despite 19 aces.
