They were candidates before and now too. Although they did not know how complicated their debuts were. Even so, Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas managed to impose conditions to get into quarterfinals of the ATP 250 in Mallorca.
The current champion and current number one in the world had a stone in front of him, his compatriot Aslan Karatsev. Always dangerous until he took him to a third set: 4-6, 6-3 and 6-2 in 2 hours and 18 minutes. Roberto Bautista Agut is his next rival.
While, the Ray Greek put a double 6-4 to Ilya Ivashka with passages of exquisite tennis. The American Marcos Giron is already waiting for him in the next instance.
Also, Denis Shapovalov fell to Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi by a score of 6-4, 6-1; and Sebastián Báez yielded with Daniel Altmaier by 6-2, 2-6 and 6-4..
