THE QUALIFYING IS OVER

The qualifier is now over at Gazprom Hungarian Open!


Hubert Hurkacz (185th), Jurgen Zopp (137th) and two Italians, Matteo Berrettini (105th) and Lorenzo Sonego(159th) made it to the main draw. The German Yannick Maden (132th) and also Italian, Marco Cecchinato (100th) became member of the best 28 as lucky loosers.

Marci Fucsovics will play with Maden in the first round, they’ve met in Portotoz 2 years ago, and Marci was able to win in 3 setts, while Attila Balázs is against Berrettini, whom he has not met so far.


They will play only doubles on Monday,and  both of them, or with Zsombor Piros three of them will play singles on Tuesday. Therefore is reasonable to call the playday after tomorrow A Hungarian Tuesday.

On Monday, Marius Copil and Aljez Bedene will start their tournament with the others, who have a lot of Hungarian affiliation since the Romanian  have won the ATP Challenger in Budapest a few years ago, and the Slovenian player has played a final against Lucas Pouille at Gazprom Hungarian Open last year.
