Hurkacz was lucky in the first round of Marseilles, as his rival was 129th in the ranking of Anton Joan. The Frenchman failed to resist the Pole. As a result, Hubert confidently stepped into the second round of the competition (6-4, 6-1).
It is worth noting that in 2020 the representative of Poland started quite well. So far, he has lost only three matches, and at the tournament in Adelaide he even reached the semifinals. Due to this, he takes 29th place in the Asia-Pacific Region rating.
The main problem of the Pole was a terrible game on the back line, because he hardly broke the ball over the net and at the same time managed to make a huge number of unforced errors. And also the player was completely dependent on his pitch. But last season, Hubert began to easily keep the ball in court, and this year he won points in long exchanges of punches, which previously seemed impossible. Thanks to this progress, he ended up in the top 30.
Pospisil encountered some difficulties in the match with Emil Ruusuvuori. The Finnish tennis player briskly started that fight and at the beginning of the meeting he managed to break the Canadian. True, Vasek quickly corrected the situation and brought the match to a logical win (7-6, 6-3).
Two weeks ago, Pospisil, finally returned to the first hundred of the rating. This was made possible due to the fact that Vasek reached the final of the tournament in Montpellier, where he lost to Gael Monfils (7-5, 6-3).
No matter how strange it may sound, a recent injury positively displayed on Vasek. Indeed, recently he has rapidly regressed and could no longer score points at ATP category tournaments, so he sank down to the Challengers. However, after the damage, the Canadian returned to the tour with an incredible mood and now only adds. He significantly improved the game on the back line and stopped at the first opportunity to run out to the net, as he did earlier.
