Since the beginning of the week, Benjamin Bonzi has not been spared from cruel scenarios. Defeat against Germany, Wednesday, after saving two match points; setback against Australia when he had two break points at 4-2 in the third, the Frenchman multiplies the bitter disappointments.
Hard for a player who gives a good impression for two and a half sets ... before sinking at the end of the game. Like against Alex De Minaur, who brought Australia back into the game after Richard Gasquet's victory against Jason Kubler (6-2, 6-4).
"It's a bit the same feeling as yesterday (Thursday), the 26-year-old explained. From Minaur is very hard to move from the baseline and he moves very well. After the first set, I changed my approach by varying the game, playing quickly then slower. I was close, but it wasn't my day. It's twice that I gave everything to get my point. It hurts to experience these things. I did not cheat on the court. It was war on every point. It was a big showdown, which didn't turn out for me. »
