Luca Nardi comes close to achieving a feat but goes down with Stefanos Tsitsipas

Nardi came close to achieving the feat, against the No. 6 ranked Atp

Luca Nardi, engaged in the Atp 500 tournament in Astana, came close to a great feat against the number 6 of the Atp ranking: the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas

The 19-year-old from Pesaro managed from the very beginning to put the Hellenic tennis player, who failed to have even a single break ball available on his racket, in the entire duration of the match

In contrast, Nardi twice served to break his opponent's serve, without succeeding. In a substantially balanced match, surely the difference was made by the serving ability of Tsitsipas, who netted ten aces, but also the greater experience of the Greek, who managed to bring home a match (7-6, 7-6), which had become more complicated than expected.

The Italian therefore leaves the tournament with his head held high, having made it through two qualifying rounds and eliminated, in the round of 16, Russia's Alexander Shevchenko
