Great presentation of Guido Pella from Bahia (93 °) to beat Fabio Fognini (36th) in straight sets and getting into no less than the third round of the Cincinnati Masters 1000.
The Argentine, in addition to adding confidence and rhythm, he returned to win two games in a row since the 2020 Australian Open. It was 6-1 and 7-5 in an hour and a half of play.
The history between the two is now equal in three games per side and the Argentine’s next rival will come out of the duel between Alexander Zverev (Gold in Tokyo 2020) and Lloyd Harris.
In an elusive 2021, with injuries, COVID and loss of ranking, consecutive wins are a balm to project the end of the season.
