The main draw of the ATP 250 in Eastbourne was drawn a few minutes ago, one of the two last chapters (with very good tradition) before Wimbledon for the men’s circuit. In 2011 he won here Andreas Seppiwho did not take pity on various skits of Janko Tipsarevicwith the Serbian retiring a few points from defeat in the final now close to the shadows of night.

On this occasion there are two Italians, one of whom, Lorenzo Sonegocame very close to granting the Azzurri an encore in 2021. For the Turin native he challenges the Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. There is a decidedly distant precedent between the two, relating to the Genoa Challenger 2019, in which the final was won by the Italian 6-2 4-6 7-6(6).

Further down, however, for Flavio Cobolliwhich finally wants to be able to demonstrate that it is there on the grass even with the results (because the adaptation is already there), there is once again the challenge to Arthur Rinderknech. The Frenchman defeated him in the only direct match, played in Rome in 2023, when the Capitoline player’s explosion had not yet occurred (it ended 6-4 6-3 for the native of Gassin, near Saint Tropez).

On British soil there is a lot of curiosity to find out if there will be an estate Billy Harristhe wild card that surprised Queen’s by reaching the quarter-finals, but also a good version of Cameron Norrie. Commanding the board, at US level, is Taylor Fritzbut it is Tommy Paulwho shares the flag with him, who seems to have more chances.
