Ukrainian Vitaliy Sachko (285) did not take advantage of the chance to play in the quarterfinals of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Challenger Tour tournament in the Czech city of Liberec with a prize fund of €45.73 thousand.
In the second round match, the 25-year-old native of Kremenchuk (No. 285 ATP) lost to the representative of France Giovanni Mpeshi-Perricard (493) – 5:7, 3:6, Ukrinform reports.
The opponents spent 1 hour and 16 minutes on the court.
It is interesting that Sachko lost to this opponent in the qualification final, but after that he got the right to play in the main draw of the competition in Liberec as a lucky loser.
The 19-year-old French tennis player will compete for a ticket to the semi-finals with the winner of the meeting Norbert Gombos (Slovakia, 119) – Oriol Roca Batalha (Spain, 280).
The tournament will run until August 7th.
