This Saturday, May 13, at the end of the evening, at Villa Primrose, the draw for the qualifications of the BNP Paribas Primrose tournament took place, but that of the final draw was missing. Several unexpected factors intervened in the unfolding of this unpredictable evening.
With the passage of the Primrose Challenger in the ATP 175 category, players involved in the ATP 1000 tournament in Rome have also registered for the Bordeaux tournament. But due to bad weather in Rome, this Saturday, the matches were shifted and delayed. Some players also registered at Primrose have not yet been eliminated from Rome to potentially come to Bordeaux. The draw for the final draw cannot yet take place. The suspense is at its peak. Tomorrow at noon will be held the draw for the final table of the BNP Paribas Primrose tournament.
Fortunately, the qualifying table, after many twists and hours of waiting, took place around 9:30 p.m. today. After the meteorological complications come those concerning the organization of the final table. The No. 2 seed Yoshihito Nishioka who lost today against the Italian Lorenzo Sonego at the Masters 1000 in Rome, withdrew from the Bordeaux Challenger at the last minute. As a result, a player who should have passed the qualifications will automatically find himself in the final table.
