We stacked a quarter-unit Tuesday after splitting our hitters in Estoril. We hit a little bad luck with Andujar, who failed to seize control of that first set — squandering five break chances on the Tsitsipas serve, which would’ve all but secured the first set for the Spaniard.
However, it’s safe to say our luck turned around, as our second hitter — Nicolas Jarry — pulled a Lazarus to beat Leo Mayer, who had a 40-0 lead serving for the match at 6-5 in the second set. The Chilean sensation somehow saved all three match points (and then another) before breaking Mayer’s serve to force a second-set breaker. He then saved two more match points before taking it 9-7. And like most second-set breakers, that swung the momentum of the match, which carried right into the decider, which he won 6-4. Fortunate hit to say the least.
After a very sweaty Tuesday, let’s look ahead to Wednesday.
