Score, report, and key facts
The Italian in this set was too strong for the Swede and for that reason he won 6-2 after breaking Simon in the 5th (3-2) and in the 7th (5-2) game.
Simon was powerless in the last 5 games of the set (from 1-2 to 6-2).
Mager had a pretty good kick start of the set after breaking Yitbarek in the 1st game (1-0). Anyhow, there was more to do for Gianluca to win the set since Simon succeeded in breaking back in the 4th (2-2) game. Mager kept his cool to break the Swede in the 11th (6-5) game before winning the set (7-5).
At the end of the match, Gianluca scored 69 points vs. the Swede’s 48 points.
Mager served very well to win 91% of the points (31/34) behind his first serve. However he won only 46% points (11/24) on his second serve. Gianluca was sharp when converting 80% of the break points that he procured (4/5). On the other side, Simon was battling in converting his break points as he converted only 33% of his break points (1/3). That was one of the key issues for his defeat.
After this contest, the head to head between Mager and Yitbarek is 1-0 for Gianluca.
