Guido Pella’s bad fortune with the PCR had not allowed him to play some of the tournaments that were fixed on his calendar such as those in South America and in the European brick dust tour he tried to get back to the measure of the circuit. However, Munich was a new station in his course and, in this case, injury involved.
After a solid debut against Egor Gerasimov, John Millman appeared as an interesting opponent on that road back and the result reflected that. After 8! sets points (and a break ball) managed to close 6-4 the first quarter but at the beginning of the second set the house of cards collapsed.
The problem came with an inopportune puncture that made him call the physio after the 2-0 for the Australian. The tears on the chair were impossible to hide and the end seemed to draw near.
He started 0-30 on the scoreboard for the next game but couldn’t move. With his own fear of forcing his right leg adductor and after 40-30, the Bahiense decided to stop. The pain led him to drop out of the German ATP 250.
