Roland Garros opens the curtain and starts its third day. And, for now, Paris is a party for Argentines. To the victory of the first day of Nadia Podoroska, was added on Monday the epic comeback of Diego Schwartzman and the good triumphs of Pedro Cachín, Thiago Tirante and Tomás Martín Etcheverry. And this Tuesday the action continues for our compatriots: the best ranked player in Argentina, Fran Cerúndolo, faces the Spanish Munar. In addition, Genaro Olivieri clashes with Giovanni Mpetshi Perricard, Sebastián Báez goes with Monfils and Guido Pella with Hallys.
Everything started early. From six in the morning, the Bragadense Olivieri (227) is measured in the opening round with the Frenchman Giovanni Mpetshi Perricard (233), in an even match, at least in ranking. The Bragado stayed with the first set by 7-6 (3) and battle in the second. If he wins, he will play with the winner of Italian Andrea Vavassori (140) and Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic (36)
After 9 in the morning, Francisco Cerúndolo (28 and first ranked of the Albiceleste Legion) will play with the Spanish Jaume Munar (77) and to overcome it will be the Brazilian Thiago Monteiro (96) or the French Benjamin Bonzi (65).
At the same time, Bahian left-hander Guido Pella (421) will play against Frenchman Quentin Halys (87); the winner will surely have a goat match as he will face the winner of Russia's Daniil Medvedev (2) and Brazil's Thiago Seyboth Wild (172) who is coming from qualifying.
Sebastian Baez (44) will play experienced Frenchman Gael Monfils (386), 36. To cross that hard hurdle, he will wait for the one who passes in the clash between the American Christopher Eubanks (75) or the Danish "top ten" Holger Rune (6), one of the best tennis players of the year.
Other matches to keep an eye on. From 9 o'clock, Holger Rune faces the American Christopher Eubanks in the central court. And, about an hour later, Taylor Fritz will do it with his compatriot Michael Mmoh.
