SAN MARINO/STARNBERG, August 7, 2023
Jaume Munar is the champion of the 30th edition of the €145,000 Internazionali di Tennis San Marino Open. The 26-year-old Spaniard defeated Andrea Pellegrino of Italy 6-4, 6-1 in Sunday’s singles final. Munar’s victory allows him to join the ranks of previous winners, succeeding Russian Pavel Kotov of Russia, who triumphed twelve months ago.
The No. 2 seed of the ATP Challenger Tour 125 clay-court event battled his way to the championship match with wins in the bottom half of the draw over Francesco Passaro of Italy, Nikolas Sanchez Izquierdo from Spain, Argentine Federico Delbonis and his compatriot Daniel Rincon.
Munar capitalized on five of his 11 break-point chances and won 59 per cent of the total points played to seal victory in one hour and 34 minutes.
