Vasek Pospisil, 32, seemingly isn’t enjoying playing tennis these days as he was heard saying during his Cherbourg Challenger match that he was “f—— sick of this sport.” Pospisil, a former world No 25, is now ranked at No 111 in the world.
This week, Pospisil was the top-seeded player at the Cherbourg Challenger. But Pospisil’s campaign in Cherbourg was a short one as Moraing handed him a 6-4 7-6 (5) loss. “I don’t want to play tennis anymore, man. I’m so sick of this f—— sport,” Pospisil was heard telling his coach.

How Pospisil lost to Moraing?
The first break points of the match were seen in the third game, when Pospisil saved two consecutive break points to avoid going down by an early break.
After saving two early break points, Pospisil saved three more break points in the seventh game. Moraing maybe missed out on his first couple of break points but he kept pressing Pospisil’s serve. In the ninth game, Moraing finally converted his sixth break point to take a 5-4 lead.
After earning the first break of the match, Moraing routinely served out for the first set in the 10th game. In the third game of the second set – the game in which Pospisil lost his cool – Moraing broke the Canadian for a 2-1 lead.
Down by a set and a break, Pospisil managed to break back Moraing in the fourth game. After blowing an early second-set break, Moraing broke Pospisil again in the 11th game for a 6-5 lead. Just when it seemed the match was over, Moraing failed to serve out for the match as Pospisil broke back the German to force a tie-break.
In the second-set tie-break, Pospisil had a 3-2 lead before Moraing won the next four points to take a 6-3 lead and clinch three consecutive match points. Pospisil managed to save the first two match points but Moraing realized his third match point to complete a two-set win.
