Feliciano López will not play in the final draw of Canada

The Spaniard fell in the last round of the qualifying round against the Japanese Yoshihito Nishioka after a close match and failed to reach the final table of the Canadian 1,000 Masters.


Feliciano López will not play the final draw of the 1,000 Canadian Masters in Toronto. The Spanish tennis player stood up but could not overcome in the last previous round of the tournament the Japanese Yoshihito Nishioka, who won 7-5 and 7-6 (6) after two hours and 28 minutes of play.

Feli, who was very solid on serve (14 direct aces and 82% of points won with her first serve), suffered a severe setback in the twelfth game of the first set, when Nishioka managed to break her serve and take the first set by 7-5.

In the second Feliciano got ahead after breaking Nishioka's serve in the seventh game, although the Japanese returned the break in the next game and the sleeve went to the tie-break. In the tiebreaker, the Spanish had set point to the rest, but Nishioka was very solid in the decisive moments and took the tie-break in this second set to close the match.Ruusuvuori surprises Tiafoe

Along with Nishioka, Finn Emil Ruusuvuori, who beat American Frances Tiafoe, first seed of the qualifying round, 6-1, 6-4, have also made their way to the final table of the Canadian Masters 1,000. They will also be in the final phase Tommy Paul (7-6 (3) and 6-3 to Liam Broady), James Duckworth (4-6, 6-1 and 6-2 to Peter Polansky), Ricardas Berankis (6-4 and 7-5 to Emilio Gómez) and Brayden Schnur (7-6 (7) and 6-3 to Daniel Elahí Galán) .
