Guests of the last hour at the Masters by going to seek the necessary points last week in Sofia, miraculous Wednesday by saving 5 match points that would have eliminated them against John Peers (AUS) and Michael Venus (NZL / N.6) (2 -6, 6-7, 12-10), Roger-Vasselin and Melzer had to win in two sets against the pair Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos.

A scenario badly started since the Austrian lost his serve in the third game, but the break was erased when Zeballos served at 5-4 to win the set, the two teams finally finding themselves in the tie-break. But after an ace from Roger-Vasselin on the first point, Granollers, who had had his shoulder treated for quite a long time at 6-5 at the edge of the court, decided to give up. A misunderstanding ensued, the official website of the Masters initially announcing that Roger-Vasselin and Melzer had won but without crediting them with a 2 sets to 0 victory, which left them behind the N.1 seeds. Mate Pavic (CRO) and Bruno Soares (BRA).

For 5 minutes we don’t know

We didn’t know if we were qualified. We leave the match and we don’t know, no one tells us anything (…) I think no one had anticipated that“, said Roger-Vasselin at a press conference.”For 5 minutes we do not know and then we are told “no, you are good, you are qualified“”, he added. “That’s not how we would have liked to qualify, obviously, even if we take. It’s success, but we went looking for it“, continued the player who played his last tournament with Melzer, who will end his career after the Australian Open, where they will not be associated.

Given the nature of the injury, the presence of Granolers and Zeballos on the court on Saturday at 1 p.m. for their semi-final against Wesley Koolhof (NED) and Nikola Mektic (CRO / N.5) is uncertain. Roger-Vasselin and Melzer will be present from 7 p.m. against Rajeev Ram (USA) and the local of the stage, Joe Salisbury (GBR / N.2).
