Sumit loses the opening set 46 against his 400 ranked opponent, but is 52 up in the 2nd well set to pocket it.

Sumit went 1-5 down in the first set before starting his comeback. Was too late to salvage the first set. But, has now won 9 of next 12 games. Hopefully, this resurgence will continue in third set.

Resurgence continued for next 2 games as he went up 2-0 in third set. But, he has now lost the next 3 games to go 2-3 down in third set. Strange up and down match this is for Sumit.

And loses the decider 36, surprising loss on his favourite surface and that too, to a 400 ranked player.

And he lost.

ATP 250 Cordoba Open ( Clay)

[Q1] Sumit Nagal (IND,144) l. Facundo Diaz Acosta (ARG,400) 46 62 36

Sumit won 1 out of first 6 games, then won 11 out of next 14 only to lose 5 out of next 6 games. Strange match and disappointing loss.

Sumit hasn't been playing well for sometime, so not a big surprise. The slower court should favor his game but most players playing here are also clay court specialists, so he has to be playing well to win.

Covid has definitely been a massive setback to Indian tennis. Nobody is winning much, apart from Ankita's golden run at Melbourne 4 (Phillip Island Trophy) in doubles especially, but also one breakthrough singles win.
