A tennis player retires due to injury … when he had match point

Christopher O'Connell suffered the hardest face of tennis in his flesh when he saw how an injury prevented him from taking a game that he had quite on track in the ATP Challenger Sánchez-Casal Leotron Catalonia that is played at the Sánchez-Casal Academy in Barcelona.

The Australian tennis player, 112 in the world, played his first round match of the tournament against the Spanish Carlos Gimeno and he had the game very expensive after winning the first set 7-6 (5).

However, in the second sleeve and with 5-2 in favor and match point with his serve O'Connell tried a volley at the net with such bad luck that he sprained his ankle and was forced to leave not being able to continue playing.

O'Connell, who this year won a Grand Slam match for the first time after beating Laslo Djere in the first round of the US Open (in the second round he fell to Daniil Medvedev), he hopes to recover from this injury to continue climbing positions in tennis and enter the Top-100 of the ATP ranking for the first time.
