Micah Franklin went down in straight sets in his qualifying match opening the Paraguay Open.
Taking on Andre L’ Heureux who is ranked number two in Paraguay, Franklin lost 11-7,11-6,11-9 in 40 minutes.
Franklin said, “Not my best performance on the night, I struggled a lot to make the rallies last longer than they did. I needed to keep the ball in play and be patient waiting for my opponent to make an opening first which I couldn’t do tonight.”
Franklin continued, “Fitness was a big factor for both of us, and its one part of my game that I know needs work on this summer.”
“All in all finding life pretty hard on PSA World Tour,” continued Franklin.
Franklin concluded, “At the moment feeling like a small fish in a big ocean, struggling to stand out, however on a positive note I have had some good feedback on areas that I’m weaker in and I am keen to start working hard to improve as soon as possible.”
