Alejandro Davidovich defeats Feliciano López in the final

Alejandro Davidovich became the winner of the ninety-sixth edition of the Copa del Rey de Tenis by beating Feliciano López in the final by 7-6 (7-5) and 6-2 In one hour 17 minutes, at the Recreativo de Huelva de Tenis facilities.

The number 32 in the world was measured on track 1 against 90 and sent the ranking in the game and the youth on the experience.

López, 39, has five Davis Cup titles to his name, as well as seven singles and five doubles titles. Davidovich, 22, won the junior Wimbledon title in 2017 and has a major tournament yet to win, but he showed his great potential and future.

In the first games both finalists knew how to maintain their service. Feliciano was finer with the serve, with a large percentage of firsts, while Davidovich played many seconds and committed a double fault. The dropout was a common resource for both, with Lopez more effective, while Davidovich dominated the longest rallies from the bottom.

In this dynamic is how the Malaga man managed to break the service of the Toledo in the sixth game, which lowered his effectiveness in the service and was overcome by the forceful right of the 32nd of the world. Then with his service he remained intractable and established the 5-2. Then, after a long eighth game, López delayed the achievement of the set of Davidovich, who later broke the serve to add emotion to the duel (5-4), which tied serving again at a great level (5-5).

Davidovich rebuilt in an even game to get back in front, but López, sure with his service and good shots, forced the tie break. In the tiebreaker Feliciano was at a high level of serve, which together with Davidovich’s mistakes allowed him to place 5-3.

However, the Malaga player reacted with two good rights and a very aesthetic balloon before certifying with a direct serve his victory by 7-5 in the first set after 52 minutes of play.

The second set was much faster, 25 minutes long. He began with the world number 32 extending his streak to achieve a break of service. He got to everything and managed to chain several winning shots. That translated into four consecutive games after scoring his opponent’s serve again and defending both of his with ease against a blocked López. Despite this, he had a break making it 4-1 with a round of direct aces.

But it was not enough, Davidovich won his game blank and, although Feliciano resisted with 5-2, in the first opportunity to win the final the Malaga did not fail (6-2) to get a great ovation from the Huelva public.
