Daniil Ostapenkov, the name of the day. The Belarusian defeated Diego Schwartzman 6-4 and 6-3 in the first point between Argentina and Belarus for the Davis Cup. After the game, the Argentine left a very hard reflection on what his performance was.
“I’m not surprised, any tennis player who competes in a Davis Cup is a professional. But my match was disastrous beyond what Ostapenkov did, who didn’t know him, I don’t know if he plays like that or not, but it doesn’t matter. My game was terrible, one of the worst i had“, he commented Little
The No. 15 in the world made successive errors forcing us and that, added to the great level shown by the young Belarusian, enhanced the final result.
“He has a lot of merit, he did good things. But I did too badly, and on this surface I usually play well. There is no excuse, I had a very bad day and he had a good day, “added Schwartzman.
Regardless, the series between Argentina and Belarus was leveled 1-1 after Guido Pella beat Erik Arutiunian smoothly.
