Dolgopolov did not stay at the tournament in Antwerp

Долгополов не задержался на турнире в АнтверпенеThe strongest tennis player Oleksandr Dolgopolov lost in the first round of the tournament on hard courts in Belgium, a series of ATR-250 with a prize Fund of €660,375.

At the start of the “European Open” Dolgopolov met with 96-th racket of the world from Switzerland Henry Laaksonen. Tennis players at the official level have not previously crossed.

The key point of the first set (and maybe the match as a whole) happened in the fourth game when Dolgopolov missed a triple break-point. In the next game Alexander lost his serve and gave up without a fight starting party.

The second set Dolgopolov started with the jerk 3:0. The Ukrainian was leading 5:2, and in the tenth game was not able to apply for a set. Laaksonen began the game on a tie-break, where he used another failure of the opponent and won the match in two games.

In the match against Dolgopolov Laaksonen finished 3 aces, made 2 double faults, won only 65% of the balls on the first pass, converted 1 of 4 break points three times and lost her serve.

Because of the transient performance in Antwerp Alexander Dolgopolov earned almost 6 thousand euros in prize money and was not able to improve your credit rating balance.
