The high level of tennis that is being experienced on the clay courts of El Cortijo Club de Campo continues to provide surprises in the Gran Canaria Challenger 1 tennis tournament. And what happened yesterday is a clear example. In the second round of the main draw, the big favorite to win was eliminated. The Italian Lorenzo Musetti, said goodbye to the competition after yielding in the match that faced the Slovak Alex Molcan, who emerged victorious after a close duel that ended with the result of 7-6 (5) and 7-6 (4 ).

The number 296 in the world, after the game, did not hide his happiness by beating an opponent who “is almost among the top 100 in the ATP and was the number one seed.” In the quarterfinals he will have to face his compatriot Filip Horansky, the executioner of Gian Marco Moroni.

The Italian Andrea Pellegrino, who beat the Spanish Roberto Ortega-Olmedo, and the Serbian Nikola Milojevic, who prevailed in his match against the French Constant Lestienne, also managed to pass the round.
