Sitak moves on to Buenos Aires after Cordoba defeat

Tuesday, 23 February 2021

Artem Sitak and his American doubles partner Nick Monroe have travelled to Buenos Aires for next week’s ATP 250 tournament after losing their first-round match in Cordoba.

 Following his nightmare 75-hour journey from Melbourne to Cordoba, Sitak could be forgiven for feeling a little jaded as he took on enigmatic Frenchman Benoit Paire and Monaco’s Romain Arneodo 3-6, 6-3, 10-6 in 1 hour 15.

 It was a tight match where Sitak and Monroe made a flying start going up a couple of breaks and while Monroe was broken, Sitak served out the set.

Monroe was broken early in the second set and Paire and Arneodo forced a deciding match tie break which they won comfortably.
