We knew the weather would be temperamental this week at Parc des Eaux-Vives. And today it did not disappoint, as the matches had to be suspended and some even postponed. Grigor Dimitrov will play his first round tomorrow, as will Johann Nikles of Geneva in doubles with Nenad Zimonjic.
The matches were interrupted for a few hours this afternoon, but they were able to resume again to the delight of the South Americans, the big hitters of the top seeds. In effect, the Bolivian Hugo Dellien first beat the Italian Andreas Seppi (No. 8) in three sets (6-1 3-6 6-4) and was joined soon after in the second round by Chilean Nicolas Jarry, winning 6-2 7-6 (4) against No. 7 of the tournament, the Australian Matthew Ebden.
Following the evening’s match cancellations, that are Janko Tipsarevic and 2018 finalist, Peter Gojowczyk, who found themselves headlining this wet and relatively cool – 11 ° Monday night shown on the board, definitely not worthy of weather a month of May! Against all expectations, it is the former world No. 8, dropped to the 317th place of the ATP ranking, who won the match 7-5 7-5 against a slightly transparent German.
So it will be a big day tomorrow, as the world No. 5 Alexander Zverev will face the Latvian Ernests Gulbis at 6pm. Earlier in the day, on the Centre court, the matches between Grigor Dimitrov against Federico Delbonis, then Feliciano Lopez against Damir Dzumhur should not be missed.
