Roberto Carballés loses to the Romanian Nicholas Ionel in three sets in the first match of the Parma Challenger

Nuria Párrizas could not pass the first match of the WTA 250 tournament in Birmingham (United Kingdom), which is played on grass. She lost 7-6 (4), 3-6, 3-6 against the Polish tennis player Magdalena Frech, number 91 in the world ranking, in a match that lasted two and a half hours.

The tennis player from Granada got off to a bad start on the grass tour in a tournament that serves as preparation for Wimbledon, the third Grand Slam of the season. Her round of 32 duel was very close, but she finally opted for her opponent, who looked more comfortable on this surface. Frech hit seven aces and won more points on her first serve.

The first set was very close and there were two breaks on each side. The tie break was reached, in which Párrizas dominated. He changed the landscape in the second moto. The grenadine failed with the service and lost it. In the third set he fell 4-1 down and requested medical assistance. She seemed recovered, but she could no longer prevent the victory of the Romanian tennis player, who agreed to the next round.

For his part, Roberto Carballés had a bad day and was eliminated at the first opportunity in the Challenger 125 in Parma (Italy), which is played on clay. In the round of 16 match he lost 3-6, 6-4 and 7-6 (6) against Romanian tennis player Nicholas David Ionel, number 328 in the ATP ranking, in a match that lasted more than three hours.

The tennis player from Granada was very irregular during the match, which prevented him from giving his best performance. He had problems to dominate with his service and the rest did not feel comfortable either against a very fighting rival and who did not give any ball for lost. The ups and downs in the game and the unforced errors took their toll on him and although he was able to force the tie break in the third set, he ended up losing after a very exhausting duel.

The first set was even, but after 3-3 came a break from the Romanian player to gain an advantage and he already won three games in a row to define. In the second round he was 3-1 down, but was able to react to sign two breaks until he reached 4-4. He won four games in a row to make way for the third set, which was even. Ionel took advantage by making a break to make it 4-1 in his favour, but again Carballés revived to move to 5-5. The tie break had to be played, in which the Romanian won with difficulty after having three match points.
