Kamel Mjshirzak is currently ranked 129 in the ATP rankings, and is trying to pound after health problems in his leg that caused him to lose several weeks of this season. In Rome, he managed to pass the qualifying rounds and make his debut in the ATP Masters 1000 event. However, in the first round of the main tournament, Canadian Denis Shapovalov did not give him any chances.
Straight off the Italian “szumi” went to Lyon. On Sunday, he started a two-stage playoff where he finished seventh. Liam Brody stood in his way in the first round. After the three hundred duel, the left-handed Brit had to admit pole supremacy.
At the start of the first set, Majcherszak wasted three break points, then lost his pass to 1-2. He only tied for the eighth game, but he didn’t enjoy the comeback for long. The Stockport tennis player gave a decisive break, and after switching the team he might have finished the set the second time around.

The Brit did well on the second end, too. He scored a break in 3-2 and then scored nine points for a break in his seventh game. But Magiczak saved the pass and it was the decisive moment in the entire match. Then pole tied to 4 and defended serve two more times. So the tie break turned out to be decisive, in which the Piotrków player won 6 balls from the 1-2 condition and he was the one who closed the second part of the match.
After two sets, the game was halted for several hours due to rain. On appeal, Majchrzak looked better. He broke in the seventh game but the opponent responded immediately. Condition 4, a critical decision has been made. The pole scored another break and after switching sides, it ended the match with the first match reel.
Majchrzak finally won 4: 6, 7: 6 (2), 6: 4 and advanced to the ATP 250 qualifying final in Lyon. And on Monday, Alessandro Giannese (ATP 161) will stand in his way. Italy is a well-known figure to Polish fans, as he won the Pekao Szczecin Open in 2016.
