Friday 12:00 CET:
Hello, this is live comment from Foro Italico. Find hereunder a small recap of day 4 of this fourth DTT Masters Series and a preview of day 5:
diego36arg continues his winning streak with a tough win over MuriloBrasil. However, due to muscle strain, he had a slight injury which could prevent him from playing the final. If he is able to participate, he will face Drikke who had difficulties to beat Jeronimo, even if Jeronimo came on court very late and the referee penalized him with 1 1/2 set down. But Jeronimo seemed to be able to recover during one set (the one won by Blake/Fish) but finally, it was too difficult.
On Doubles side, vamos israel was too frightened by the Brasilian dream team Robin Hood/MuriloBrasil and preferred to not show up, leaving Drikke alone against them. So, it was easy win for the Brasilians who will face the surprising team of the week: marr/MZverev-Fan, taking advantage of Jeronimo's late appearance.
So, today is first day of Finals with the following matches:
(DTT Singles 3) vs. Drikke (DTT Singles 6)
: diego36arg seemed a little bit injured and might not be able to show up on time. It seems this is great opportunity for Drikke to win his first DTT Singles title. Both players are sure to be number 1 and 2 at next DTT Singles ranking but in which order ? The winner of this final will be the new number 1.
Head 2 Head: Drikke 1 - 0 diego36arg (Indian Wells: 1R: Drikke def. diego36arg 7-7 SRs: 4-2)
- Robin Hood/MuriloBrasil
(DTT Team 2) vs. marr/MZverev-Fan
(NR): will the German/South American team beat the Brasilian ? It will be difficult since the Brasilian Team need to win this final to reach the number 1 rank. But, anyway, this promises a spectacular final.
Head to Head: 0-0 since marr/MZverev-Fan are pairing for the first time.
