Since the beginning of the week, Benjamin Bonzi has not been spared from cruel scenarios. Defeat against Germany, Wednesday, after saving two match points; setback against Australia when he had two break points at 4-2 in the third, the Frenchman multiplies the bitter disappointments.
Hard for a player who gives a good impression for two and a half sets … before sinking at the end of the game. Like against Alex De Minaur, who brought Australia back into the game after Richard Gasquet’s victory against Jason Kubler (6-2, 6-4).
“It’s a bit the same feeling as yesterday (Thursday), the 26-year-old explained. From Minaur is very hard to move from the baseline and he moves very well. After the first set, I changed my approach by varying the game, playing quickly then slower. I was close, but it wasn’t my day. It’s twice that I gave everything to get my point. It hurts to experience these things. I did not cheat on the court. It was war on every point. It was a big showdown, which didn’t turn out for me. »
