Challenger Napoli: Quattro italiani in campo su SuperTennis, diretta dalle ore 16:00

Despite the rain forcing the organizers to revise the day’s schedule, it will still be a Tuesday with a strong blue imprint at the Napoli Tennis Cup 2024, Challenger ATP 125 (prize money 148,625 euros) organized by Master Group Sport in collaboration with Tennis Club Napoli, broadcast live on SuperTennis and SupertenniX.

The matches that would have seen Matteo Gigante (no.7) against the French world no.168, Benjamin Bonzi, in what would have also been their first direct clash, and the challenge between Luca Nardi, the highest-seeded Italian in the draw (no.2), against the Slovak Jozef Kovalik, who today slipped beyond the two-hundredth position in the rankings but two years ago managed to reach the world no.80, have indeed been canceled. The two have faced each other only once in their careers, when two years ago Nardi emerged victorious in three sets in the first round of Wimbledon qualifying. For Kovalik, the match against Nardi will also be the eighty-ninth match played in his career against an Italian opponent, with an overall record of 49 wins and 39 losses.

The derby between the qualifier Samuel Vincent Ruggeri and the wildcard Enrico Dalla Valle, last year’s winner in the M25 final on the red clay of Cattolica with a score of 64 62, has also been canceled. Likewise, the match of Franco Agamennone will be rescheduled, as he will try to bring his career head-to-head record to 2-0 against the French world no.187 Matteo Martineau, whom he defeated in the 2021 semifinals of the M25 in Bourg-en-Bresse.
