ATP Geneva🇨🇭Day 3 Results
With some rain delay halting many matches, only four were completed overnight.
Dominik Koepfer d Feliciano Lopez 7-5 6-7(1) 6-3
Another battle of the left-handers here in Geneva! A quality match with some striking shifts in momentum, but ultimately it was the German with the victory over the Spaniard.
Casper Ruud d Tennys Sandgren 7-5 6-2
The no3 seed made relatively light work of the American. Despite some glimpses of magic from the 29yo, it was not enough to see him break. Ruud definitely seemed the more comfortable on clay, and it showed in the score.
Dominic Stephan Stricker d Marton Fucsovics 7-5 6-4
The Swiss 18yo does it again! First Cilic, now Fucsovics. Stricker quickly gained a 3-0 lead in the opening set before the Hungarian levelled the score. A double fault handed Stricker the first set. With Fucsovics breaking early in the set, the Swiss youngster gathered all he had and managed to come back into the match, and with Fucsovics' fourth double fault of the match, handed Stricker the win!
The world no 419 is definitely going to be moving up the rankings after this tournament, as it's his maiden QF. He could've played his hero Roger Federer, but instead is playing Pablo Andujar.
Grigor Dimitrov d Ilya Ivashka 6-4 6-4
The Belarusian couldn't handle Dimitrov's pressure in the first set, playing some very nervous tennis, giving Dimitrov ample opportunity to hit deep and come up to Ivashka's short ball, finishing the set in style with a smash winner. With Dimitrov holding a 5-0 lead in the second set, it didn't seem warranted for Ivashka to come back, but the world no 91 wasn't done, breaking back twice and saving two match points to be back on serve 5-4, but Dimitrov broke one last time to finish the match.
