The premiere of the Colombian Daniel Galán at the Miami Masters 1000 ended with a win against Brazilian Thiago Seyboth Wild (6-3 and 6-4) to advance to the second round.
The tennis player from Bucaramanga was participating in this tournament for the first time and it took him an hour and 35 minutes to beat an opponent ranked 125 in the ATP ranking.
Galán, 113 of the ATP classification, will face Australian Alex de Miñaur, fifteenth seed, in the second round.
However, the importance of the victory lies in an even more relevant statistical data. He is the first Colombian to win a singles match in a tournament of this category since Santiago Giraldo in 2016, also in Miami.
