Nicolás Jarry bids farewell to Kitzbühel and Christian Garin recovers Chile’s number one

Nicolás Jarry bids farewell to Kitzbühel and Christian Garin recovers Chile’s number one

The country’s third racket went to Spaniard Pedro Martínez and found himself without the possibility of reaching the top 100 or threatening the return of Gago to the top of the list of national players in the ATP rankings, led by Alejandro Tabilo.

After the good feelings he left after his passage through the ATP 250 in Gstaad, Nicolás Jarry (112th) moved to Kitzbühel thanks to a joker from the main draw. However, he was unable to enjoy it in a good way and He ended up losing to Spaniard Pedro Martínez (49th), 7-6 (4) and 6-3, in one hour and 45 minutes of play.

The 762 meters of the Austrian city suited Nico well in terms of services. However, the big flaw in his game is that he does not translate this same efficiency towards his return, a problem he suffered again on this day against the champion of the Chile Open because throughout the match, he could not take advantage of the six break possibilities he had and ended up giving up a match whose outcome could have been more favorable.

In reality, he had three points to close the first set of game 12. However, he couldn’t specify them and the Spaniard came out of the tight spot to take it all until the tie-break, where he was much more precise in finalizing his options and starting to unbalance the game.

In the second part, Jarry managed to break in the fifth game, but failed again. While his rival had the precision to do it in eighth Game , which allowed him to serve for the game and close the duel with some anguish.

Unlike last week, the pupil of Juan Ozón and César Fábregas was not as fine with the second serve. In reality, He barely managed to win 48% of the points which tipped the scales for the Spaniard, who capitalized on one of the two break options he had throughout the game. Thus, the Chilean ended up saying goodbye in a week in which the ups and downs of the rankings will leave him at the doorstep of the top 100 so a victory would have allowed him to return to this group after two and a half years.

Jarry’s defeat confirms, by the way, Christian Garin’s number for Chile, who will recover this position next Monday, since Alejandro Tabilo will lose 48 points. Nico was the only one who could beat Gago (eliminated in the first round in Austria), if he won the tournament. However, this fight promises to be very tight in the coming weeks.
