Pablo Cuevas, Uruguayan and number 85 of the ATP, could not continue his way in the ATP 250 tournament in Munich because he ran into Casper Ruud, number 24 and seed number 2.
With the authority and confidence that the Norwegian carries, every step in the game became very difficult. It was 6-3 and 6-2 in an hour and 10 minutes of play in which Cuevas practically had no chance to deploy his game.
It should be remembered that this tournament meant the return to the courts of the South American at an official level in the singles modality, two months after his injury in the fifth metatarsal of the foot.
The diagnosis was confirmed after his fifth round loss at the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the calendar year, on February 11 against Alex de Miñaur. The official medical report said he suffered a stress fracture to that toe.
On the first shift of the day, Guido Pella was forced to quit due to severe pain in his right leg. The one who advanced to the round was John Millman when the game went 4-6 and 2-0.
In addition, Alexander Zverev had no problem going to the round. He beat Ricardas Berankis 6-2 and 6-4.
