Ukrainian tennis player Ilya Marchenko (ATP 412) in the first round of the challenger in Quimper (France) beat Benoit Perat (ATP 172) in 1 hour and 10 minutes.
ATP Challenger Camper. Hard indoors. 1/16 finals
Benoit Pierre (France) – Ilya Marchenko (Ukraine) – 1:6, 4:6
35-year-old Marchenko never gave up his serve.
Per is a showman who is famous for his not the best behavior on the court. He likes to argue with the referees, break rackets and do things that do not paint a tennis player. However, this image of a tennis player-robber brings him a considerable number of fans. Benoit was even in the top 20 of the ATP world rankings.
In the 1/8 finals of the tournament, Ilya will play with 20-year-old Dominik Stricker.
