Sergiy Stakhovsky quickly said goodbye to the Open championship of France.
Stakhovsky in the status of “lucky loser” in the first round
tried the sixth attempt to beat the 33-th racket of the world from France Gilles Simon.
Sergey was considered the undisputed underdog of the match – unfortunately, to confound the bookies
and skeptics Kiev failed.
Match with Simon Stakhovsky lost one wicket.
Suffice it to say that 2 hours Sergey has managed to earn only one break-point,
realize that he has failed. The Frenchman also organized four breaks and without
problems followed in the second round with the prospect of meeting in the third round with
the first racket of the world Novak Djokovic.
In his only main draw match at Roland Garros
Stakhovsky has filed 4 aces, made 2 double faults, won only 55% of the points from
the first submission (opponent – 84%), made 22 vinners and twice surpassed
Simon, on the number of unforced errors (37 vs 18).
Performance in Paris brought to Sergey Stakhovsky 10 points
in the ATP ranking and 46 thousand euros in prize money.
