Diego Schwartzman imagined a duel with a compatriot in the second round of the Australian Open but some imponderables appeared that changed the opponent.
First, because Federico Delbonis got off minutes of the match against Juan Ignacio Londero and, secondly, it was a certain Alexandre Muller who had other plans for the Argentines. The French (210º) got as lucky loser and will collide for the first time with number 9 in the world ranking.
El Peque removed Elias Ymer by 7-6 (3), 6-4, 2-6 and 6-2 and his next rival took care of Londero by 4-6, 6-3, 6-0 and 6-3. The duel will be in the second turn of the 1573 Arena: not before 23, through the ESPN 2 screen and also through ESPN Play.
