Sumit Nagal knocked out of Geneva Open after defeat to world no 19 Sebastian Baez | Tennis News

India’s top-ranked singles player Sumit Nagal faced a tough first round exit from the Geneva Open after a hard-fought battle against Argentina’s clay court specialist, Sebastian Baez. Despite a strong start and a 4-1 lead in the match, Nagal ultimately succumbed to Baez’s impressive first serve performance and lost 6-7 (7) 3-6 in a match that lasted nearly two hours.

The defeat was disappointing for Nagal, who expressed his feelings on Twitter by saying, “Gutted with the loss today. But good preparation ahead of Roland Garros. Paris next.” Nagal, who has qualified for the French Open, is determined to bounce back stronger in the upcoming tournament.

Baez, ranked world no. 19, showcased his expertise on clay by capitalizing on his strong first serve throughout the match. With two clay court titles already under his belt this season, Baez’s skill and precision proved to be too much for Nagal to handle in the end.

Despite the loss, Nagal’s performance in the Geneva Open serves as valuable experience and preparation for the upcoming Roland Garros tournament. The young Indian player is focused on improving his game and making a mark in the world of professional tennis.
