Argentinian tennis star Pedro Cachin recently beat Albert Ramos-Vinolas from Spain at the EFG Swiss Open in Gstaad. The 28-year-old player bagged his first-ever ATP Tour title after beating Vinolas by 3-6, 6-0, 7-5. An exhilarated Cachin wasted no time rushing to the stands to hug his girlfriend while sharing some kisses and cuddles with his beloved French bulldog. The pooch has its exclusive spot with Cachin's family at the courtside, who drove from Spain to see the player win his ATP trophy.

The resulting victory made Cachin climb from number 49 to 41 in the ATP ranking, marking his career-best performance. In a Twitter video posted by @TennisTV, we can see the sweet moment between Cachin and his pet, Tango. According to ATP Tour, Cachin's win on July 23, 2023, came after a tense face-off between the Spaniard Vinolas and himself, which lasted for 2 hours and 23 minutes. Vinolas delivered his "explosive groundstrokes" before using a "drop shot to great effect."



 

The Argentinian made a comeback in the third set of the match and beat Vinolas to become the fifth first-time champion of the ATP Tour in 2023. "At the beginning of the match, I was a little nervous and made a few mistakes. It was the first time I had played against a lefty in the tournament, but I stayed there," Cachin said, as reported by the outlet. "I tried to be positive, more aggressive, and go to the net. In a final, it is difficult to play like this the whole match. I am very, very happy."

The 28-year-old player's previous career-high rank was 54 as of November 2022. He arrived at the event holding a 9-18 on the year and had only previously made one tour-level quarter-final at Cordoba in 2019. Cachin also defeated fellow players like Taro Daniel, Roberto Bautista Agut, Jaume Munar and Hamad Medjedovic before beating Ramos-Vinolas in Gstaad. According to Clay Historias De Tenis, Cachin sat down for an interview recalling his journey before his Wimbledon debut, where he faced off against Novak Djokovic.

"People were telling me to enjoy it. I told them that of course, I was going to enjoy it because beating him is impossible," the Argentine told the outlet and other media houses, referring to the time when his phone was blowing up before his match with Djokovic, which took place earlier this month. "He has done a lot for tennis and not only for him but for those of us who play against him and our families. He generates a lot. We are so grateful to Novak."

Sure, his moments with his pet puppy were wholesome, but securing the win in order to celebrate with his loved ones was a difficult path for the rising tennis champ. Netizens left wholesome comments appreciating his adorable moment with Tango and his family, who came a long way to support him. "Well-deserved puppy kisses," one person wrote, whereas another congratulated him on his first big win on the tennis court.
