Problems with the refereeing system confused the tennis battles of Emil Ruusuvuori and Benoit Paire.
Finn tennis player Emil Ruusuvuori defeated France Benoit Pairen In the ATP 250 tennis tournament at Winston-Salem. With his victory, Ruusuvuori will advance for the second time this season to the semi-finals on the ATP tour.
Paire, who finished 12th in the tournament, fell 6-4, 4-6, 6-1.
Finnish Tennis Association says, that during the opening round, the electricity was cut off during the opening round, when the situation was 4–4. This caused problems with the electronic judging system, which led to a break of a few minutes in the batch. The electricity was cut off again in the second batch as well.
Paire and Mount Rose had already encountered this summer on a North American tour. The duo met in July in Atlanta, USA. At that time, Paire was injured when the game became more physical, and he had to leave the field.
Rose Mountain will next face a Frenchman placed 14th in the tournament Richard Gasquet.
The US Winston-Salem tournament is the last for Rose Mountain before the US Open Championship starting next week.
