Hurkacz says goodbye to the Australian Open. Pole was eliminated in the second round of the tournament

Ranked No. 10, Hubert Hurkacz finished his performance at this year’s edition of the Australian Open for the Grand Slam in the second round. The Polish tennis player lost in Melbourne to Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 4: 6, 2: 6, 3: 6.

Hurkacz, who reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon last year, He has not made it to the third round in Melbourne yet, and has two matches in the second round (previously in 2020).
The Wrocław player showed himself well in the ATP Cup team event, which opened by the season. After moving to Melbourne, things got worse. In the opening match of more than three hours, he struggled with the 106th place on the world list, Belarusian Yeager Gerasimov, whom he defeated 6:2, 7:6 (7-3), 6:7 (5-7), 6:3 . He made 65 non-forced errors.

Two days later, he had limited such errors a little – he had 40 – but his performance was still unsuccessful. Last season he defeated Mannarino, the 69th seed, in the first round in Rotterdam. The experienced opponent caused him some trouble after that, but the Pole closed the match in two sets. On Wednesday, he was unable to save one to his account.

The problem for the almost 25-year-old resident of Wroclaw was wasted opportunities to break – he only converted one in ten to a point. The nine-year-old Frenchman made use of nearly half of these occasions (6/14).

Both players did not win the “break point” they obtained in the first part of the first game. The seventh gem that Hurkacz started from 0:40 turns out to be the key. He even tied and won 35 exchange hits, but after a while he lost the pass anyway. Although he sent out seven aces in this batch, he made 13 non-forced fouls and was unable to make up for the start. The closer we got to the end of the group, the more dissatisfied the player, supported among others, colleagues from the Polish national team.

From the second version, the Mannarino feature has grown more and moreWhen it comes to site effectiveness first. There was no sign of fatigue, though, as he played a five-set match in the first round of the tournament. The people of Wroclaw became more nervous. After the first match in which he lost the pass, he had objections to the referee’s decision, and at the end of the second half he angrily kicked the ball that was left on his side. On the score 0: 1, he wasted three points for a break, and on the score 1: 2 – four more points. In this party he added 16 to the scale of easy mistakes.

In the third, there was no breakthrough in the actions of the favorite, who found himself in a very difficult situation. The only breakthrough in this game was when he lost 1: 4. The Frenchman did not allow himself to lose another pass, and the duel ended in the play-off in Poland.

On Thursday, Iga Schwetek, Magda Linate and Kamel Majcherzak will compete for promotion to the third round. Magdalena Froch lost her opening match on Tuesday.
