Bellucci debuts with victory in challenger quali

Cassis (France) – The campaign of São Paulo Thomaz Bellucci in the qualifier of the Cassis challenger started with a victory. This Sunday, the southpaw from Tietê got the better of the British Luke Johnson, 28 years old and currently 801 in the world, with partials of 6/2 and 7/6 (7-5).

In the last qualifying round, Bellucci will face the home tennis player Jurgen Briand, 23 years old and 496th in the ranking, who eliminated the Israeli Edan Leshem in straight sets, with the final score of 7/6 (7-5) and 6/2.

Current 973rd in the world, Bellucci didn’t give any scares in the first set, passed without facing break-points against and got two breaks in his favor, the first of them in the fourth game and the other in the eighth and last.

In the second half, the story was quite different. The paulista won the first game, but lost the next five, with two consecutive breaks, and was in a very complicated situation. But then came the big comeback for Bellucci, who won five games and returned two breaks.

The definition was for the tiebreak, in which the paulista managed to ‘steal’ two points in the rival’s serve and lost only one with his own, sealing the victory in straight sets in the second match-point he had, without facing a set-point against not even.
