This first round eliminator between Virgona and Chapman finished in one day. Virgona won the 1st 4 sets 6/1 6/2 6/4 6/2 and took up his option to play one additional set to complete the match and he won the 5th set 6/3.
Sport can be ‘cruel’ and try as he could Chapman could not turn the match around; there were great rests, amazing retrieving but Virgona always seemed to have the extra momentum to crush Chapman.
Virgona now sits in the Final Eliminator to see whether his opponent will be Rob Fahey or Bryn Sayers. This match starts on Friday 9th and concludes on Sunday 11th at Queen’s Club.
