Sitak bows out of Wimbledon

Friday, 02 July 2021

There is just one New Zealand representative left standing in the men’s doubles at Wimbledon. Artem Sitak and his Argentine partner Federico Delbonis have been well beaten in their first-round match at the All-England Club.

They have lost 6-3 6-2 to the French pair of Jeremy Chardy and Fabrice Martin. Games went with serve until the fourth game of the first set when Sitak was broken in the only service break of the first set which lasted 34 minutes.

 Delbonis served first in the second set, but he was broken, and the French pair never looked back as Sitak lost serve too to go down a double break and they went on to complete a comfortable win after an hour on court.

 Sitak’s demise following Michael Venus’s loss a day earlier leaves Marcus Daniell last man standing among the Kiwi men. He and Philipp Oswald have found out their second-round doubles opponents. They will face Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Tomislav Brkic and Serbia’s Nikola Cacic tonight New Zealand time (10pm) in the first match of the day on court 10.
