Nonthaburi (Thailand) – This Saturday ended the good campaign of Gabriel Décamps in the second consecutive challenger in the Thai city of Nonthaburi. After winning the first set against Australia’s Omar Jasika and losing the second, he retired in the third when he trailed 5/7, 6/4 and 3/0.
Décamps didn’t start well, had to save two break-points in the first game and was broken in the third. But after falling behind by 1/4, he grew in the match and only lost one more game. First, he returned the break in the seventh and then in the 11th he hit Jasika’s serve again to take the first set.
In the second set, the story was similar but with different roles. It was the Brazilian who started in front and even scored 3/1, with a break in advantage, to then win only one more game, losing the serve in the sixth and tenth, allowing the Australian rival to equal the score and take the definition for the third part.
The decisive being was short-lived, with Décamps retiring after three games. He was broken in the second and trailed by 3/0 when he abandoned the game leaving the spot in the final for Jasika, who will decide the tournament title against Frenchman Arthur Cazaux, who in the other semi beat Kazakh Beibit Zhukayev with partials of 6/1 and 7/6 (8-6).
