Zizou Bergs (ATP-146) lost his first match on grass at Wimbledon. Britain’s Jack Draper (ATP-94) was too strong for our compatriot in three sets for his crowd, who sometimes showed himself with great tennis.
There were few signs of tension in Zizou Bergs. From the start, he explained why he was involved in the Wimbledon main draw. However, that didn’t lead to the Belgian’s breaking chance, which his opponent gave him and won: 4-6.
Same story in set 2. Bergs followed Jack Draper’s pace in his service games, but had no answer against the Briton’s hard serve. After a gentle run, the host player pulled the card a second time.
Sacrifice for our fellow warrior. Draper steamed, Berg was immediately set for the chase. He even got his first break and turned it into 2-3 in the third set. A welcome adrenaline rush for the Belgian.
Zizou Bergs forced a tiebreak in set 3, but had to admit his superiority over his opponent. The Belgian leaves his first Wimbledon with his head held high.
