The main favorite goes on
Czech Jiri Lehecka, the main favorite of the Concord Iași Open tournament, qualified for round 2, but not without emotions. The world number 70 had to be used seriously to defeat the Moldovan Ilya Snitari, world number 733, who came from qualifications. After almost two hours of spectacular tennis, Lehecka prevailed in two sets, 6-4, 7-6 (5), after returning in act 2 from 0-3. Snitari leaves the tournament with his forehead up, after two deserved victories in qualifications and with an evolution far beyond expectations in front of the main favorite.
