Nam Ji-seong’s team seemed to consolidate the victory by continuing to lead by 2 points with 5-3, 7-5, 8-6, etc. in the match tie-break. However, in a situation leading 8-7, both of Cade’s service points were missed, and it was reversed to 8-9. At the final match point, Purcell hit a service ace, ending the 1 hour and 27 minute game.
In the ninth game of the first set, Nam Ji-seong lost the game with Cade recording two double faults and gave up the set. Ji-Sung Nam committed 6 double faults in this game and lost the game.
Purcell, the 2022 Wimbledon doubles winner, showed a knack for blocking the opponent’s attack with a lob at every crucial moment.
