The ‘not very young’ and the little girl. Et voilà, the winners of the Forte dei Marmi Open tournament: in the men’s field, the spotlights have illuminated the umpteenth conquest of Walter Trusendi, a player who is stronger than his identity card, since he always plays with the passion of a kid novice. In the women’s field, attention: take note of the name of Anastasia Bertacchi. She won, who is not yet of age and has all the qualities to stand out. In short, if a good morning starts in the morning, we will see some good ones.
The UnipolSai Assicurazioni Marianelli men’s Open tournament got underway with two sparkling semifinals. In the first Stefano Baldoni beat Giulio Perego 2-0 (7-6, 6-2). Then in the family challenge, between the youngest and the youngest, Trusendi against Furlanetto, the experience was decisive with the success of the former 2-0 (6-4, 6-0). In the final, a great battle with Trusendi who started uphill with Baldoni as he found himself 1-0 down (6-3) but then overturned the score by winning the second set 6-2 and finally 10-8 at the tie-breack.
Among women, in the Azimut Investimenti tournament – with a special dedication to the late Stefano Tardelli – in the first hard-fought semifinal Anastasia Bertacchi beat her partner Emma Belluomini for 2-6, 6-3 and 11-9, while in the second the head of Series number 1 Alessandra Anghel dismissed Camilla Raggi 2-0. In the final, Anastasia completed her great tournament by winning 2-0 at Anghel (6-2, 6-3) and as an (indirect) prize she flew away from Italy for an international tournament.
