Tennis: Corentin Moutet wins and joins Djokovic in the second round in Rome

Corentin Moutet, 83rd in the world this Monday, took advantage of the help of part of the public to overthrow Roman Saffiulin, 39th in the world. Trailing 6-3 at the end of the first set, the Frenchman fought until the tie-break of the second set, winning 7 points to 1, to finally win the match in three sets (3-6, 7-6(1), 6-2).

The second round will be complicated for the Habs, who will face Novak Djokovic, back after his withdrawal in Madrid. The world number 1 was exempted from the first round and will try to win on Roman soil to arrive with confidence at Roland-Garros.

“Since I was little, I have been training to play this kind of matches, I have already played (against) Nadal at Roland, (against) Djokovic at Bercy and I am playing it again,” declared Moutet who overthrew Russian Roman Safiullin 3-6, 7-6 (7/1), 6-2 in the first round on Thursday. During their first confrontation, during the Masters 1000 at Paris-Bercy in 2019, Moutet, 25, competed with the Serbian who won 7-6 (7/2), 6-4.

“I'm going to come out on the pitch to win like I've done every time. Even if I am not the favorite, from the moment I enter the field, I will do everything to beat him, I think that is a way of respecting him,” he continued.
