Cristian Garin (24th in the ATP ranking) started his tour on European clay in a great way. The Chilean made his debut in the singles table of the Monte-Carlo Masters 1000 with a triumph against the tough and promising young Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime (21 °) by 7-6 (3) and 6-1, in a match that was had to resume this Tuesday after being interrupted on Monday by rain.
But the “Tank” will not have much time to rest, because it will have to leave this Wednesday to the court to play his second round duel against Australian John Millman (44th), in which it will be the first meeting between the two.
The match was scheduled for the first shift of court 9, so it will start at 5:00 hours in Chile, as long as the rain does not prevent it, because some rainfall is forecast. It can be seen by ESPN 2 and ESPNPlay.com.
The creole will face a player who has just eliminated Frenchman Ugo Humbert (32nd) by 6-3 and 6-3 and who has an irregular 2021 season, where his best result was last week when reaching the quarterfinals of the ATP 250 from Cagliari, also in clay.
But while the oceanic is not going through its best moment, in 2020 it won its first and only ATP title at Nur-Sultan (fast track), while in 2018 it had its best year when it defeated none other than Roger Federer in the eighth of final of the US Open and in October he reached 33rd place as the best ranking of his career.
