Márton Fucsovics said goodbye to the tennis tournament in Barcelona in the eighth final, but he fought a huge battle against Britain Norrie, who was ranked 4th in the tournament.
Barcelona ATP500 Round of 16
Cameron Norrie (brit, 4.)-Martin Fucsovics 7: 5, 6: 7 (9-11), 6:4
The fourth-ranked Cameron Norrie (10th) was waiting for the 53rd Hungarian player in the world rankings, and they would have originally clashed on Thursday. However, due to the constant rain, the program slipped to the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona in 1899, leaving the winner with another match later on Friday.
In the fourth battle, Fucsovics had to pass two breakballs by 4: 4, but stable serving games followed one another. At that time, however, the opponent, who was born in Johannesburg and grew up in New Zealand – who excels mainly on the hard track – failed to serve with a few bad punches, so at 5: 4 the Hungarian served for the set.
A marathon boom ensued, bringing 33 ball runs, Fucsovics had eight game balls, but he couldn’t live with any of them, not even a tricky bottom-up serve. Norrie, 26, broke back, turned to 6: 5, and then won the 1 hour 14-minute set with another break.
The game balls didn’t want to come in
The sequel brought an equally balanced struggle, and Fucovov was again the first to gain a break advantage. This time he had a game ball as a bettor at 5: 4, but he didn’t live with it and couldn’t even outsource the set.
The short start started very badly, because Norrie pulled it 3-0, but the Hungarian player didn’t give up, he turned 6-4, but his hand shook again at the game balls. In the dramatic endgame, Fucsovics left two more opportunities untapped, while Norrie had a match ball, and finally Fucsovics had better nerves to finish the short.
The third game was also close all the way, with the parties going head-to-head until 4: 4, at which point Norrie managed to win as a bettor and then outsourced the match, which lasted 3 hours 25 minutes.
