Guccione sneaks past Tomic
Bernard Tomic has gone down in a tight three-setter against Chris Guccione at the McDonalds Burnie International Challenger event.
The tall Melburnian denied Tomic the opportunity to defend the title he won last year in a hard-fought and extremely tight affair, 6-3 6-7(3) 7-6(5) to move into the final.
Guccione will play Italy’s Flavio Cipolla who ousted Japanese eighth seed Tatsuma Ito in straight sets, 6-4 7-6(3). The final will be Guccione’s first since October last year when he won a Futures tournament in the US.
