Round one of the ATP Challenger Pekao Szczecin Open was completed on Tuesday. On Monday, the first pole starting in the main tournament won the promotion. Pawe Ciaś defeated Vito Kopriva in three sets. Daniel Michalski withdrew from his position after meeting Tae-Sun Kwiatkowski.
Tuesday’s “match of the day” was the duel between Kamel Majcherzak and Andrea Pellegrino. It lasted two sets, but fierce and with a happy pole ending. Initially, Majchrzak broke Pellegrino’s serve in the match at 4:2, and since he was guarding his own pass, he won 6:3. In the second set, the two players won the match twice into the opponent’s serve and the tiebreak decided Majchrzak’s victory. Pole was leading 5:0, and suddenly lost six more balls, only to defend two set pieces to win the thrill that ends the day with a score of 9:7.
– I lost to this opponent two years ago, so I knew I was going to have a tough match. I’m glad I won, and in the crucial moment of the second set, I kept my nerves in check and was able to close the tiebreak – says Majscherzak.

– On Wednesday I will play a match with Roberto Carballes Baena, whom I have already faced three times. He won the last two games, so I will do everything to raise the level of the competition. We know each other very well, so there’s probably no doubt about surprising each other on the court. I know what to do and will try to play wisely and effectively – adds Majcherzak.
Albert Ramos hasn’t played for long. The organizers allowed the Spaniard to get the best ATP rating “50” thanks to the “wild card”, and the ranked tennis player lost in three sets to his compatriot Nicolas Kuhn. The 21-year-old made it to the main event through playoffs, and despite losing the first set 6:6, he beat Ramos-Vinolas 6:4 in the other two sets and created a huge upset.
“It was a crazy match because I’ve never had the chance to compete against the top 50 tennis players. Pekao Szczecin Open is the best tournament I’ve had the chance to compete in, so I feel even more excited,” says Kuhn.
Tennis players compete on the courts of Aleja Wojska Polskiego for the 28th time. The tournament runs until Sunday. It’s back on the calendar after a year off due to the coronavirus. The total prize money for players was kept at the same level as in 2019 – 132 thousand euros.
