Rune can believe it, Cerundolo eliminated

Dane Holger Rune can still believe in his chances of qualifying for the semi-finals of the NextGen Masters after his victory over Juan Manuel Cerundolo, now eliminated.

As is the tradition, the first match of the second day of the NextGen Masters in Milan pitted two players who had lost the day before. And in Group A, Holger Rune beat Juan Manuel Cerundolo and therefore retains his chances of qualifying for the last four, while the Argentine is already eliminated. The 18-year-old Dane won 4-1, 4-2, 1-4, 4-1 in 1:17 for his very first match against his opponent of almost 20 years old. Even if he was rather irregular in the service (4 aces, 5 double faults) and he experienced a physical slack in the third set, Rune recovered well and signed a rather logical victory. He will therefore play his future in the competition on Thursday against Brandon Nakashima, while Cerundolo will challenge the favorite of this Masters, Carlos Alcaraz, for his last match before the deserved vacation, he who has gone from 341st to 91st place in the world this year. , and won the Cordoba tournament.
