Neither the pause for the weekend quarantine in Ecuador nor the interruptions due to rain and neither the physical decline slow the great streak of Nicolas Jarry (507th ATP ranking) in the Challenger of Salinas.
The Chilean tennis player had to play his semifinal match on Monday due to sanitary restrictions in the country of Guayas, but he carried out his match and settled in the grand final.
The “Prince” defeated the Argentine Camilo Ugo Carabelli (311 °) by partials of 7-5 and 6-3 in a duel that was delayed by rain and was later interrupted by rainfall when the national served 40-15 in the first game. .
With this new triumph, Jarry, who this Monday appeared bordering the top 500 and as a new 4 in Chile, will continue to climb and will play his first final after his long sanction for doping and the first in two years after his crown in Bastad 2019, which it is his only trophy at the ATP level.
In search of the title, which would be his fourth in the challenger category, this Monday (with ESPN Extra broadcast) will face the qualy Colombian Nicolás Mejía (382 °), who on Friday was the executioner of the Chilean Tomás Barrios in the quarterfinals, and who on this day defeated the Turkish Altug Celikbilek (234 °), sixth seeded, by 6-3 and 7-5.
