Paweł Ciaś used a wild card awarded by the organizers. The brave Polish tennis player loves to surprise, and this happened during a duel with Vita Kopriva. After the three-set match, he defeated our Czech representative 6-2, 4:6, 6:4 and in the second round he will face Italian Stefano Travalic, who played Sumita Nagala from India.
– At first, I was a bit nervous and exhausted, so I ran the first serving gem to zero. Then I tried to hit the field with the ball. He succeeded, the opponent made a lot of mistakes. I’ve won six games in a row. There was tension or perhaps the thought that ‘I’m going to catch up because I have an advantage’. Unfortunately, it happens that nothing will be played, because you have to work on your own – said Ciaś, who in the second set did not retain the breakthrough advantage and had to play the third match.
– I like dirt, my game has improved recently. I hope that when I get an edge, I’ll wrap up matches in two groups. Because this time it lasted for an hour – said our tennis player, who feels good in Szczecin. – I will not hide that I like the atmosphere when there is artificial lighting. It is a nice. Two years ago I lost in such conditions in the third round with Josef Kovalik, who later won the whole tournament – he admitted it.

Another Polish tennis player with a wild card, Daniel Michalski, was not promoted to the 1/8 finals of the Pekao Szczecin Open. Warsawyan lost to American Tai Son Kwiatkowski 3: 6, 6: 4, 1: 6. – I did not do it, I lost in three sets. The last batch escaped quickly, and very quickly. I am not satisfied with this result, I wished for more. I wanted to play hard, especially on the backhand. Sometimes I was able to do this, but I made a lot of mistakes, and for this I lost – said our tennis player.
In the evening in Szczecin there was an exciting clash with the participation of two representatives from Spain. The winner was number two Pablo Andujar, who made up for a double-break loss in the opening match and saved four symbols. The 35-year-old finally defeated fellow countryman Carlos Taberner 7:6(2), 6:4. Now the sensational Danish Holger Vitus Nudeskoff Ron will stand in his way. Other ranked players also won the opening ceremony: Roland Garros, 2018 semi-finalist, Italian Marco Cecchinato, and Brazilian Thiago Monteiro.
The qualifying rounds were also completed in two stages on Monday. Maciej Rajski, who was defeated by the Russian Alexei Watutin 5:7, 6:3, 6:4, could not advance to the main category. – There were no easier points, but with his combos I had to risk and go to the net. The key was to surprise him, because he wasn’t already expecting that. It paid off. I regret that in the second set of the game I lost 3: 3 to zero, and then stupidly served. Maybe if we went evenly to the end, it would be different? Rajsky asked. – I felt my opponent was catching up, and I made up for the loss from 2:5 to 4:5. It was even after 30. In the end, he took out the match and won – he added.
The organizers of the Pekao Szczecin Open 2021 planned, Tuesday, for the upcoming matches of the first round of singles and the start of the doubles competitions. After, after at 19:00 in the central stadium, the first full-fledged duel of Majscherzak will take place against the Italian Andrea Pellegrino.
