Emil Ruusuvuori cleared a tricky test against the big-serving Jiri Vesely to reach the second round of ATP Antalya. He won 85% of the first-serve points and did not face a breakpoint on his serve, 6-3 7-6. After delivering some impressive results on the Challenger circuits in 2019, the talented Emil Ruusuvuori made his mark on the main tour in 2020 and looked settled at this level, despite facing some fitness problems over the course of the season. The 21-year-old Finn’s most recent outing on the main tour came in the inaugural edition of ATP Nur Sultan last October, where he won five matches as a qualifier before losing out to Adrian Mannarino in the semifinal. It was also his career-best result at this level.

Stefano Travaglia bounced back from a terrible start to the match against Miomir Kecmanovic and wrapped up the contest by delivering a bagel in the deciding set, 1-6 6-4 6-0. During this impressive win, the Italian fired five aces and created nine breakpoint chances. It was a much-needed confidence-boosting result for the big-serving Stefano Travaglia, who suffered an injury in Sardinia in the second half of 2020 and struggled to perform at his best level in the closing stages of the season. A win against the relatively inexperienced Emil Ruusuvuori on Saturday would give Stefano Travaglia his first quarterfinal appearance on the main tour since ATP Umag 2019, where he defeated fellow Italians Thomas Fabbiano and Fabio Fognini (retired).
