Davidovich advances in Indian Wells
An interesting duel from the bottom of the field, and already at the beginning of the game it was clear that everything was going to be very close. Davidovich would have his first break chance in the second game, but would not be able to get it. The Spanish tennis player had great statistics with his serve, losing only one point on his first serve in the entire set. Thus, that collateral was created so that the risk of return would be higher. Wu made a few extra mistakes at the worst possible time, having to hold a serve to tie the score. The man from Malaga won the first round 6-4.
The beginning of the second set had a similar rhythm, but now the lead was taken by the rain, which forced a halt to the proceedings as Alejandro led 2-1. After a break of more than two hours, the game returned with a fast break in favor of the Spaniard, who was now on his way to victory. After another break in a row Davidovich sealed his victory with a 6-1 final.
