The Halle tournament lost its outgoing champion. Ugo Humbert thus lowered his flag against Hubert Hurkacz in the second round. Le Messin, who was the last Frenchman in the running on the German turf, gave up in two sets (7-6, 6-3) and just under two hours of play (1h45 precisely). This early defeat will have a heavy consequence in the standings since he will leave the Top 100 next week, a first for him since the very end of the 2018 season.

Humbert may have regrets because he was the first to break in this match (3-1) before returning his advantage while leading 40/15 in the next game. Worse: he could not achieve two set points on the restart at 5-4, 15/40, suffering the big firsts from his opponent. And in the tie-break of this first set, he even led 4-2 before losing five of the last six points. The second set was the same barrel: after a missed opportunity at 2-2, he gave up his commitment at the worst time at 4-3 against him. His lack of confidence of the moment was glaring on these hot moments.

Quiet Medvedev

For his part, Daniil Medvedev celebrated his return to the throne. While his first round promised to be potentially dangerous against David Goffin – finalist in Halle in 2019 -, Daniil Medvedev did not give details on Wednesday on the German turf. The Russian thus left only five small games (6-3, 6-2) in just over an hour (1h04 precisely) to the Belgian. To join the quarters, he will challenge Belarusian Ilya Ivashka on Thursday.

Medvedev ruthless against Goffin: the summary of his victory in video

Deprived of Wimbledon like all his compatriots and Belarusian players, Daniil Medvedev does not balance the season on grass, quite the contrary. Finalist at ‘S-Hertogenbosch last Sunday, the new world number 1 was convincing for his entry into the running in Halle. Precise, very consistent from the bottom, he quickly stifled David Goffin. A break was enough for him in the first set at 2-1 to take the lead against a generally overwhelmed Belgian.

At 5-3 against him, however, Goffin obtained an opportunity to break, well dismissed by a big first from the Russian. In the process, Medvedev pushed his advantage with a double break at the start of the second set and five games scored consecutively from 5-3 to 6-3, 4-0. Only downside for him in this part: he will have committed 5 double faults.

FAA continues and takes the quarter

Félix Auger-Aliassime is already in the quarter-finals. After being pushed into three sets for his entry against Marcos Giron (6-3, 5-7, 6-3) on Tuesday, the Canadian had less difficulty against another American, Mackenzie McDonald. If the start of the match was hung, the 9th in the world then inexorably broke away to win in two sets (7-6, 6-1). FAA will face the Pole Hubert Hurkacz, 12th in the world, in a tempting duel for a place in the last four.
