Mager Makes a Determined Comeback

Gianluca Mager made a determined comeback after being bageled in the first set to beat Spain’s Pedro Martinez in the first round in Umag.

The Italian looked completely out of sorts in the first set as the Spaniard wrapped it up in just 22 minutes. Mager raised his level in the next set, breaking Martinez twice to force the decider.

Both exchanged breaks in the third, before the Italian got his nose in front with an extra break and then served out the match for a 0-6, 6-3, 6-3 win in an hour and 56 minutes.

A decent clay court player, the 26-year-old Mager will aim for a second quarterfinal berth this year, after he made it to the last eight in Belgrade.

The opening round win improved the Marbella Challenger winner to 10-13 overall and 7-9 on clay this year.

Altmaier Advances After Moutet Retires

Daniel Altmaier had lost eight successive main draw matches on the tour, but that losing streak came to an end on Wednesday, with the German qualifier progressing to the Round of 16.

Luck played a huge role in helping the World No. 152 advance, as his opening round opponent Cornetin Moutet was forced to retire with the match poised at one-set-all.

Moutet drew first blood after Altmaier lost serve twice in the first set to go down 5-7, but the German forced his way back into the contest with three breaks in the second. He took the set 6-1 before Moutet retired.

Interestingly, Altmaier, who came through the qualifiers, had lost the first set in both of his qualifying rounds as well. He beat Italy’s Flavio Cobolli 2-6, 6-3, 6-1 on Sunday and Serbia’s Matija Pecotic 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 on Monday.

The 22-year-old, who had come to Umag with a 0-5 main draw record this year, had won a Challenger title in Braunschweig earlier this month.
