Gstaad (Switzerland) – Czech tennis player Vít Kopřiva won his second win in Gstaad during the premiere in the main competition on the ATP circuit and advanced to the quarterfinals. In the second round he won the scalp of the Canadian Denis Shapovalov, he defeated the tournament number 2: 6, 6: 3, 6: 2.
Twenty-four-year-old Kopřiva started a duel with a world top ten loss and did not save the opening set. However, the 249th player entered the ranking better and took the lead 3: 0 and managed to equalize despite one hesitation. He then serviced the decisive set reliably and in less than two hours he won the most valuable victory to date.
Nettle has become the lowest ranked player since 2017, beating the top ten. At that time, Thanasi Kokkinakis managed to eliminate Milos Raonic’s world number six at the Queen’s Club tournament.
To advance to the semifinals, Kopřiva will face the Swede Mikael Ymer in Switzerland, a player from the end of the first hundred ladders who eliminated the eighth-seeded Spaniard Felician López.
