Los Cabos, August 1, 2023.- Mexicans Rodrigo Pacheco and Ernesto Escobedo said goodbye this Tuesday to the seventh edition of the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo, but they did so competing against more experienced rivals with a high level of competition.
Pachecho, 18, lost in two sets to Chile’s Nicolas Jarry, 27, while Escobedo lost in three sets to Jason Jung, from Chinese Taipei, who reached the main draw as a lucky loser.
Although Pacheco’s score is tough and relentless, the Mexican junior showed progress that will help him in his step to professionalism and he was seen without pressure and trying to give his best.
The Mexican started the match settled on the court facing a loose Jarry and forced to win.
In the first set, the Mexican was 2-3, but in the sixth game Jarry broke and defended his serve for 2-5, then Pacheco defended his serve and the Chilean closed for 6-3.
In the second set, Jarry used his experience and managed to break the Mexican’s serve three times to close the set 6-1.
It was not an easy match for Jarry, (No. 26), as the Mexican demanded him to play up to 80 minutes of the match.
“He started solid in the first set, but in the second I raised the level and it was a little more difficult for him. He’s a good kid, you can see his potential, he’s fast and left-handed. Now the important thing is that he stays humble and hardworking because it’s not easy to reach the top and that he keeps improving his head”, said Jarry about the Mexican after the match.
Earlier, Ernesto Escobedo gave hope to the Mexican fans by beating Jung 6-3 in the first set. But for the second, Jung reacted and the physical background played against the national born in California, who in spite of it managed to take the set to a tie break so that finally Jung did not give him a chance and won 7-5. In the third, Escobedo, already exhausted, surrendered the set 6-2.
