Alejandro Tabilo (167th in the world) achieved a milestone in his career. After his comeback victory against the Bosnian Damir Dzumhur (126 °), former 23rd in the world, the Chilean surpassed the qualy of the Masters 1,000 in Miami and will play for the first time in its trajectory the main painting of a tournament of that category.
The game will be played around 1:30 p.m. (Argentina time) and can be seen by ESPN2 and ESPNPlay.com.
And the second Chilean racket, which will accompany his compatriot Cristian Garin (20th) in the main draw, already has a rival for its absolute debut in the stellar phase.
The draw determined that “Jano” faces the Swedish Mikael Ymer (95th), with whom he will have a kind of revenge after losing in 2020 in the Davis Cup series in Stockholm a match in which the Creole had a match point and lost 3-6, 7-5 and 6-3. The match will be played this Wednesday, in the second turn of court 4, so it would begin around 1:30 or 2:00 p.m. (the action on that court begins at 12 in Chile).
If he wins, the Canadian-born southpaw will have a more difficult stumbling block, as he would face the Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili (38th), who was released for being the 27th seed and who two weeks ago won the ATP 250 title in Doha, with a victory over Roger Federer included.
Meanwhile, Garin will start early in the second phase due to his status as 13th seed, so he expects a rival between Croatian Marin Cilic (45th), with whom he lost at Queen’s in 2019 on grass, and Argentine Federico Coria ( 84 °), whom he defeated in 2020 in the ATP 500 in Rio de Janeiro, a tournament that the national won.
