Chile is still alive in Davis: Jarry signs his revenge and extends the series against Peru to the fifth point

The best racket in the country beat Juan Pablo Varillas 6-2 and 6-4. Everything will be defined in the duel between Alejandro Tabilo and Ignacio Buse.

Nicolás Jarry extends the series in Santiago. The world number 20 beat Juan Pablo Varillas 6-2, 6-4 to leave everything even at the National Stadium. Whether Chile is among the 16 best teams in the tournament will depend on Alejandro Tabilo, who will have to define against the young Peruvian Ignacio Buse.

From one of his worst defeats under the colors of Chile, where he himself admitted to having had a very bad match, to a tennis recital in less than 24 hours. This is how extreme the time Nicolás Jarry spent at the National Stadium was for this Davis series. The Chilean gives hope after a complex defeat in doubles. It’s all 2-2 thanks to the number one racket in the country.

It was a perfect match, where from the first minute he achieved everything he had planned. He broke from the start and started with winning performances. It was a deadly weapon that Varillas could never contain. The Peruvian tried to create discomfort with a good defensive game, but all his attempts failed. Jarry was unstoppable. He closed the first set 6-2 after a game where he chained his first four serves. The numbers on the round reflect this formidable level: 93% of points won with the first, 100% of points won with the second, 10 break chances and maximum service scores of 217 kilometers per hour.

All of this translated into a boost of confidence that continued into the second set. No longer having as many differences in play, Jarry was able to maintain control of the match. Very strong in his games, he found punishment in the fifth game, coming out 3-2 and serving. Break which sparked the crowd’s madness and served as the definitive impetus to end the match. Final 6-4 to prolong the drama.

Tabilo and Barrios failed in doubles

The day started with a loss that added drama to the series. The national team made up of Alejandro Tabilo and Tomás Barrios lost in two sets to the Huertas del Pino brothers, leaving Chile on the verge of elimination. In fact, if Jarry had lost to Varillas, Davis’ dream would have ended there.

The match was also a blow for a duo accustomed to good results in the Davis Cup, but on domestic cement they were not even close to their best versions. Outmatched tactically and mentally, the national team never managed to enter the match, losing 5-7 and 3-6. Already during the first two service games of the match, they had to resist four break points. Throughout the match, Chile only had one chance to break the Peruvian duo’s serve.
