No surprise we could say ! he lost 3-6 / 6-4 / 1-6
This match had well begun for Arnaud with a first game on serve won very easily . But the second was already tough with 4 break balls against him and he saved only 3. He also saved one break ball in the following game and more problematic we can notice that he didn't get any break balls in the first set that's he logically lost 6-3
In the second set, he got two balls for leading 2-0 but he failed even if Seppi made 4 double faults in this same game. But to be positive we can say that's he began much better this second set with no break balls against him until 3-3 whereas his % of first serve was so bad! An easy game on serve at 4-4 for leading 5-4 and then 15-40 on Seppi's serve and finally second set for Arnaud.
In the third set, he lost his serve in the first game and then there were no more problems for Seppi. After the gain of the second set Arnaud sank or maybe Seppi has accelerated ? Very short last set about 20 minutes. He saved the bagel on Seppi's serve but lost again his serve after.
He made one quite good set but it's only to be positive in this absolutely awful year in single for him.
He lost also 100 points
Doubles later or not because Seb is maybe injured ?
*Seb has problem with his thigh
