Monte Carlo: Lorenzo Sonego signs an incredible comeback and gives himself Daniil Medvedev

Lorenzo Sonego on his debut in the Monte Carlo Masters 1000 signs a crazy comeback over Ugo Humbert and beats him in three sets with a score of 3-6 7-5 7-5

In the first set all it took was a break to the Frenchman, made at 3-2 and then preserved until the final 6-3. In the second set Lorenzo held until 4-4 but here he gave up the serve to Humbert again, sending him to serve for the set. From here starts the comeback of the Italian who wins the next three games of the partial, taking the match to the third and decisive set. Here Sonego finds himself still with his back against the wall, down 5-4 with Humbert, again called to serve to bring the match home: the Italian nullifies no less than 4 match points, including one with a spectacular forehand crosscourt pass, hooks his opponent at 5-5 and closes for 7-5.

With this victory the Piedmontese tennis player gives himself Daniil Medvedev, whom he will face in the round of 16.
