Alejandro Tabilo was on track this Monday towards the second victory of his career on grass on the ATP Tour, but the slippery conditions of the court caused his duel with the Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina to be suspended and will end on Tuesday at the cinch Championships From london.

The Chilean was winning 7-6(6), 3-6, 2-0, just when he had just achieved the first break of the third set, when the decision was made to postpone the match, the first between the two members of the Top 35 of the PIF ATP Rankings.

Tabilo, world No. 24, played a very high level of tennis at various times in the match, especially in the first set in which he saved a set point at 5/6 of the tie-break. And that same state of grace led him to take advantage of his fourth break point of 1-0 in the decisive set. On Tuesday during the restart he will serve to confirm the break.
