Sowing with “eight”, Hubert Hargas defeated Russian Aslan Karasu (19th) 6: 1, 6: 3 in the 1/8 final of the ATP Masters 1000 in Indian Wells, California. The pole is waiting to select another competitor, which is Russian Daniel Medvedev (1.).
Hubert Harkas reaffirms that he feels good in the difficult courts in the United States. Of his four ATP titles, he has won three in this country. On the way to eight in Indian Wells, he has not lost a set now.
The Pole, ranked 12th in the world, will not have to wait long for a chance to compete again in Karachi, ranked 24th in the rankings. Earlier, they faced off almost two weeks ago (September 30) in the 1/8 final of the tournament in San Diego. At the time, the Russian was the winner after three hundred games, but the Wrosko player started the show as soon as he won the Mets. On Wednesday he handled his lower-ranked opponent in two games.
In the first installment, Hargas worked very well, which translated into immediate results. In this part of the game he sent five passes, and Karachev one, and three double errors. The 24-year-old pole also had a significant advantage over the performance of the first pass — with him it was 78 percent, and in the case of an opponent over the age of four, only 41. In the beginning the favorite had to defend himself against a break, but from 1: 1 he recorded more games on his account.
The second volume was slightly higher. This year’s Wimbledon semi-final in the third game did not use two “break points”, but he made up for it on another occasion. He worked a little less in this part of the match and did not follow through on the stroke – the best season football led to a 3-3 draw by Karachev, but that was all he could do that day. Then only Vroka’s player increased his record.
The only time he has ever started in Indian Wells – two years ago – was when Hubert Harkas reached the quarterfinals. Now, in this position, he will take second place in the world rankings, either Medvedev or 23rd Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov.
Hargas finished in the first round doubles. Along with Canadian Felix Agar-Aliasim, they lost to Rohan Bopanna of India and Denis Shapovalov of Canada 1: 6, 6: 2, 4-10.
Hubert Harkash (Poland, 8) -Aslan Karazev (Russia, 19) 6-1, 6-3.
