Luca Nardi won the tournament this afternoon challenger from Lugano.

The 18-year-old from Pesaro, n.297 ATP, entered the draw as an “alternate”, in his second career Challenger final (after that of Forlì at the beginning of January, won against the Indian Sasikumar), he defeated the Swiss Leandro Riedi590 ATP, on the draw thanks to a wild card with the result of 46 62 63 after 1 hour and 34 minutes of the game.
It should be noted that in the third and decisive set Luca placed the decisive break in the fourth game and then without worries he closed the game 6 to 3, scoring three aces in the last game of the match and winning the game at 0.

The man from the Marches had a rather fast path in the tournament except for a match where he had to cancel a match point: after having set his debut in two sets the French Hugo Grenier, n.154 in the ranking and seventh favorite in the seeding, had repeated against the Bosnian Aldin Setkic, 364 ATP, coming from the qualifiers, and having canceled a match-point in the quarterfinals to the Swiss Jerome Kym, n. 1,025 ATP, also qualified, in the semifinals he left just two games to the German Cedrik-Marcel Stebe, n.218 ATP.
