Alejandro Davidovich Fokina loses his Wimbledon second round match on a penalty point

Bitter endgame for Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. Faller of Hubert Hurkacz in the first round, the Spaniard was eliminated by Jiri Vesely in a rather improbable way, Wednesday, in the second round of Wimbledon (6-3, 5-7, 6-7 [2]6-3, 7-6 [7]).

After receiving a first warning, and when he had just lost the point at 8-7 in the super tie-break of the fifth set, the 45th player in the world swung a ball high in the sky of London. A gesture of humor which earned him a new warning and therefore a penalty point, synonymous with defeat, since the Czech led 9 points to 7.

Despite some challenges from “Foki”, Carlos Ramos did not flinch or hesitate to record the defeat of the latter, after nearly four hours of combat. The Czech will challenge Tommy Paul, winner of Adrian Mannarino, for a place in the second week of the London Major.
