Denis Novak’s dramatic ATP Challenger semi-final continues in Bad Waltersdorf on Monday.
It was a very exciting LAYJET-OPEN semi-final in Bad Waltersdorf between Austrian local champion Denis Novak and Czech Vit Kopriva on Sunday, which started almost six hours late this time due to rain. The 30-year-old from Lower Austria (ATP 253) saved no less than five match points at scores of 3:6 and 3:5 (one match point) and in the second round tiebreak (four match points) and won by quick decision, much to everyone’s delight. (1000 spectators still won 9:7) and thus saved themselves in extra time. This match will be held on Monday from 11:00 am with free entry, as the match had to be stopped due to darkness.
The finalist for the ATP 125 Challenger tournament in Bad Waltersdorf, which offers €145,000 in prize money, has already been decided: Andrea Pellegrino. The Italian (ATP 230), who defeated fifth-seeded Austrian Yuri Rodionov (ATP 108) in the opening round, surprisingly beat fourth-seeded Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ATP 97) 6:2, 6:3 to the end. The final begins on Monday after a suitable break for the winner of the match between Novak and Kopriva.
