Eastbourne: Fran Cerúndolo suffers an unexpected defeat with direct consequences

Quickly forgettable day for the Argentine tennis player Francisco Cerúndolo (27th), who failed this Monday in the defense of the title in Eastbourne after suffering an unexpected defeat against the American Marcos Giron (46th) by 7-6 (5) and 7-6 (4) in first round.

After becoming the third albiceleste champion on grass in 2023, after Guillermo Vilas and Javier Frana, the eldest of the brothers, 25 years old, could not repeat the feat in the English ATP 250, suffering from solidity from the serve of the California-born, 30, which totaled four aces, 89% points earned on your first serve and no chance of breakage granted during a hour and 40 minutes of play in the last turn of the central court.

By virtue of the shock, the pupil of Kevin Konfederak, recent quarter-finalist in Madrid, who had also just lost in his debut at Queen’s, will lose 250 points fundamental in the ranking, minimally descending to rank number 30 for the first time since August 2023 benefiting the Dutch Tallon Griekspoor (28th), the British Jack Draper (29th) and the American Frances Tiafoe (30th).

In the next week, one of the Albiceleste representatives at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, who added his eighth defeat in a debut this seasonwill be presented by third time at Wimbledonafter losing in his debut in 2022 and in the second round in 2023.
