The unlikely point of Pablo Carreño
Pablo Carreno He is already in the third round, after beating the Dutchman in a very tough match Tallon Griekspoor 6-3, 6-7 (6), 7-6 (3), 3-6 and 6-4. His claw will remain on the track forever, but, above all, the point he celebrated with a jump included and that is as atypical as it is legal.
The Spaniard defended himself with a lob and his rival hit the ball with the shaft on the top of his racket, thus, the ball came out with a recoil effect and hitting so close to the net, it went to his own country. To get the point, Carreño had to wait until the ball was already in the opponent’s court to slip through the side and hit it in the opposite field.
It is one of the points of the night 👏
