The Stade Toulousain player had an excellent match against the Canadian Denis Shapovalov to reach the quarter-finals of the Mallorca tournament.
The beautiful week continues for Benjamin Bonzi on the Spanish island of Mallorca. After releasing Tabilo on Monday, the member of Stade Toulousain offered himself the number 3 seed of the tournament, Denis Shapovalov and the semi-final of Wimbledon last season. A clear and flawless success in two dry sets (6-4, 6-1).

Excellent since the start of the grass tour on which he excels and performs, the native of Nîmes is qualified for the quarter-finals. He will face the Argentinian Baez or the German Altmaier. Bonzi, if successful, could play a second semi-final of his career on the main circuit, after the one played in Nottingham last year … on grass. Auspicious with 5 days to go before Wimbledon.
