VICENZA, May 30, 2015
The 32-man-draw has been whittled down to only two players, who headlined the action on semi-finals Saturday at the ATP Challenger in Vicenza.
Inigo Cervantes won 78% of his first service points to take out eighth seed Bjorn Fratangelo. The 25-year-old Spaniard capitalized on five of his eight break points, winning 6-7, 6-3, 6-2 in two hours and five minutes.
Cervantes will face John Millman for the second time on the tour, the second time this season. The Australian won the previous meeting in Aix-en-Provence in straight sets, losing only two games. In his semi-finals match, Millman withstood six aces to overcome Thiemo de Bakker in a nail-biting finish, winning 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 in two hours and ten minutes.
The doubles title went to the Argentine combination of Facundo Bagnis and Guido Pella, who defeated Italian wild cards Salvatore Caruso and Federico Gaio, winning 6-2, 6-4 in 61 minutes. This led to a conciliatory ending for the South Americans, as four Argentines were knocked out in the singles competition on Friday.
