Three is six! Gabriel Debru has won three Porte d'Auteuil matches, and three victories in the juniors Roland-Garros 2022. He has won six sets. The Grenoble Tennis member did it again Wednesday afternoon, in round 16.
On court ndeg7, Joao Fonseca, the Brazilian Joao Fonseca, who had surprised everyone by taking out seeded ndeg2, Adolfo Dan Vallejo, was obstructing Debru. He won again in two sets (7-5, 6-3) in 1h39'. Since the beginning of the tournament, he has not lost a match.
Debru (15th ITF, seeded No. 14) was hooked in set one, conceding even the first break against Fonseca. He won four consecutive games to win the set. It was a wasted opportunity. He was able to win the next two games at 5-5.
Clearer play was evident in round 2. The Iserois broke at 1-1 to lead the race. After holding his serve, he took Fonseca’s engagement and pocketed the bet on his third match point.
Debru, the last French player in the junior singles after Arthur Gea was eliminated in the round 16 round, has qualified for his first Grand Slam quarterfinal. On Thursday, he will be facing the Slovak Peter Benjamin Privara (17 year old, 24th ITF), who was victorious Wednesday afternoon on court n deg 10.
