ATP Challenger Camper. Hard indoors. Qualification
Ivan Gakhov – Ilya Marchenko (Ukraine) – 6:7 (6:8), 6:7 (2:7)
It should be noted that in 2023 Marchenko already won against the representative of the terrorist country, Alexei Vatutin. Then, after the victory, he did not shake his opponent’s hand. This time, Ilya also did not thank his opponent for the game. The reason is simple – he is from a country that has unleashed a full-scale war against Ukraine.
