Incredible match escaped Gustavo Fernández, who fell to Alfie Hewett by 1-6, 7-5 and 7-6 (6) and was very close to getting a ticket to the Roland Garros final.
The Cordovan served 5-2 in the third quarter and, in the tiebreak, had a 6-3 advantage in his favor. Faced with the increasing mental impulse of the British, Gusti could not resist and ended up giving up a meeting that had it practically resolved.
In this way, the five-time Grand Slam champion could not advance towards what was to be the decisive match to win the third crown in Paris (he won in 2016 and 2019).
It should be noted that Hewett takes an important victory and confirms his great moment against the Argentine: in last year’s edition, he had also eliminated him in the semifinals.
