A close match at the end of the day at the Foro Italico in the unexpected absence of Alcarazi. his executioner, Fabian Marozsan, got this great opportunity after pulling off probably the biggest surprise in a long time. The Hungarian, who competes regularly on the Challenger circuit and was coming off the previous stage in Rome, had also added victories against Moutet and Lehecka to reach this stage. His rival was nothing more and nothing less than Borna Coric, a recent semifinalist in Madrid, who wanted to deepen his good feelings on clay. Croatia had beaten Monteiro and Carballés to reach this round of 16.

very even match

An ideal start for Marozsan, who made a quick break in only the second game of the match to take the lead and take the pressure off at the start. Borna couldn’t find his shots and couldn’t beat the Hungarian in duels from the bottom of the court. Alcaraz’s executioner was still very solid, taking advantage of this advantage and leaving no opportunities for his service turns. Only at your service, the Hungarian won the first set 6-3.

Rain forced a halt, much to Fabian’s displeasure, but just five minutes later the players were back in their seats on the track. Moments of absolute excitement in the fifth game when Coric had to turn 15-40 in what would have been a huge disadvantage for him. The security with which Marozsan held his innings was surprising, never letting up in intensity until… Coric increased the pressure and took the set 6-4, only on his first chance.

Coric, to the quarterfinals

The same trend for the third series, although of course with a smaller margin of error. Borna was in the lead after starting the serve, so Fabian almost always had to serve to tie the game. Nevertheless, the level did not drop, and the game was very attractive. Croatia prepared to take certain risks at the end with great precision, and before that the Hungarian was too quick to try drop shots. In the end, Borna sealed his victory with a decisive 6-3 to reach the quarterfinals.
