Santiago González (MEX) and Marcelo Demoliner (BRA) were defeated in the quarterfinals of the Telcel Mexican Open against Joe Salisbury (ENG) and Rajeev Ram (USA), # 4 seed.
The Latin Americans took the first four points of the game but then the game went 4-2, after a game in which Demoliner hit Ram but without consequences.
After putting the game 5-3, Ram had a great defense in the net that prevented Santiago, encouraged by the local public, from taking the set. But an accurate shot directly to Jon’s body again -now by Santiago- ensured the 6-4.
The second set went 5-2 in favor of their rivals but González and Demoliner fought every point … They got 5-3, 5-4, 6-5 and 6-6 … The tiebreaker continued to rise in favor of their rivals up to a 9-6 and then with Santiago on the serve, the game, set and match was resolved by 10-6.
