Chile’s tennis star Nicolas Jarry has opened up about having difficulty on the court before finally getting some much-needed success. The 28-year-old is going through a purple patch in his career as he recently played in his first-ever ATP 1000 event final in Rome.
That match, however, ended in disappointment, as he lost to Germany’s Alexander Zverev in straight sets with a score of 6-4, 7-5. Before that, the Santiago-born star also played in the final of the Argentina Open, where he lost to Facundo Diaz Acosta in straight sets with a score of 6-3, 6-4. Besides that, Jarry also played in the Chile Open and the Miami Open quarterfinals.
The current world number 16 was recently quoted in a report where he discussed his arduous journey, in which he faced many ups and downs. Jarry stated that after suffering poor results initially, he realised that the real competition was with himself and not with any other player. “The sky fell over me, I went away from everybody. Negative,” she said. “I was close to my first ATP (point)…I thought I was never going to make it in my life. In tennis they show you that you’re playing against someone else, but it’s really against yourself.”
