Francisco Cerundolo advanced this Saturday to the round of 16 of the Masters 1000 de Miami after beating the American Aleksandar Kovacevic, number 102 in the world, by 6-4 and 6-4. Cerúndolo, a semifinalist last year in Miami, needed one hour and 23 minutes to defeat a Kovacevic who reached the second round as a lucky loser.
On the other hand, Sebastian Baez (33rd) lost 7-6 (2) and 6-3 against Christian Garin (82°), while Thomas Etcheverry (73rd) fell 6-1, 3-6 and 6-3 against Karen Khachanov (16°).
The best Argentine tennis player today, number 31 in the world ranking, will face off against the Canadian in the round of 16 Félix Auger-Aliassime (6th), who beat Brazilian Thiago Monteiro (81st) 7-6 (5) and 7-6 (8).
The bad news of the day was given by Báez and Etcheverry. Despite the fact that he had his chances, Seba could not overcome the Chilean Garín. Tomy, who had a difficult time against the world number 16, put up a fight and took the match to a third set, but the Russian ended up winning.
