Defeated in the first match, the United States joined France in the score, thanks to Martin Redlicki. The 22-year-old beat Frenchman Julien Eon in three sets (6 (4) -7, 6-2, 6-2).
The American Martin Redlicki used his strong point, the forehand, to beat Julien Eon.
“I was a little sinking.” Julien Eon does not mince words. After his defeat, the Frenchman came out of the court head down: “I am disappointed not to have brought my point”.
After a first set won in tie-break, the Habs sank under the blows of the American Martin Redlicki. “At 7-6, 2-2, that’s when I started down and got him up. He broke. Then there was a second break, it’s hard “regrets Julien Eon.
Martin Redlicki shares the same feeling: “In the second set, I make the break at 2-2 and I think this is the turning point of the game. He lost a little confidence at that time. I took my chance and maintained this pace until the end of the game. ”
In the last set, the American did not relax the pressure on his opponent to win: “I am very happy with my match. Our defeat in the first game made this match even more important. So I’m glad I brought my team back. ”
