Follow Jaume Munar’s Madrid dream


Jaume Munarwho last week was eliminated in the first round in Barcelona by Italian Matteo Arnaldi, he got his revenge this Sunday in Madrid by beating him 3-6, 6-3 and 6-1 and thus qualified for the round of 16 final of the Masters 1,000 in Madrid.

It was the Mallorcan’s best performance in six appearances at the Caja Mágicathree in the main draw, where until this edition he has not won a match.

Arnaldi, who came from the previous stage and was responsible for the main upset so far in the tournament by eliminating the fourth player in the world, the Norwegian Casper Ruud, He came out ready to extend his good streak and took the first set without Munar offering much resistance.

But the Spaniard, ranked 88th in the ATP, played two high-intensity sets, as his rival lost confidence.. The third set was a walk from Munar, who hesitated only in the closing hours of the match, when at 5-1 and the rest he wasted five match points before winning the final.

Munar’s opponent in the round of 16 is a Germanwhoever wins the clash in between Daniel Altmaier and Yannick Hanfmann. He had beaten them both once.
