Greek track bows to service gun Opelka in Geneva, no first semi-final

Greek track took advantage with a strong second set, in which he won three love games in a row on his own service and took one break in between. The chance of a win and his first semi-final ever seemed within reach, but things went wrong pretty quickly in set three.

The Dutchman won just two points in the first three games and was trailing 3-0 in no time. Coming back into the game, especially against the strong serving Opelka (14 aces), turned out to be an impossible task.

Once again past the first round

Greek track once again ended up in a second round of a tournament on the Swiss clay. The Dutchman has played eight tournaments since the Australian Open and only survived the first round in February in Rotterdam.

In Geneva, in the first round, Greek track cleverly knocked out the number 34 in the world Tommy Paul (7-5, 6-7 (3), 6-4). Things went a little less in the second round: then Greek track survived a sloppy second set against Swiss qualifier Johan Nikles (6-3, 7-5).
