Davis: Chileno Hormazabal cae ante Seppi

Associated Press  |  Last updated September 14, 2012
Associated Press El tenista chileno Guillermo Hormazabal cayo el viernes 7-5, 6-1, 6-2 ante Andreas Seppi, con lo que Italia cosecho su primer punto valido por el repechaje al Grupo Mundial de la Copa Davis. Hormazabal (289 en el ranking de la ATP) cayo ante el numero 28 del mundo en una hora y 42 minutos. El italiano mostro mas su calidad a partir del segundo set en el partido disputado en la cancha de arcilla de Napoles. El chileno partio muy bien con devoluciones desde el fondo de la cancha. En el cuarto game, Seppi le rompio el servicio, pero su rival se recupero de inmediato en el quinto hasta que llegaron al 7-5 definitivo. Para el segundo set Hormazabal arranco muy mal y de inmediato perdio su servicio ante un adversario que al mismo tiempo mejoro ostensiblemente su juego. Ya para la tercera manga Seppi fue evidentemente superior ante el chileno, que parecia entregado a su suerte. El partido fue precedido por una lluvia ligera que estuvo siempre amenazante. En las cinco veces que se han enfrentado los dos paises, Italia ha ganado. Los italianos obtuvieron su unica Ensaladera de Plata justamente en Chile en 1976.
