Pablo Andújar will be the co-star of Roger Federer’s return in Geneva. The Spanish beat Jordan Thompson 6-0 and 6-4 and will play in the next round against the Swiss.
Andújar, 35 years old and in 75th place in the ranking, surpassed the Australian without problems and will live an important moment in his career: he never faced Federer (39, 8th).
The Swiss will play his second tournament in 2021, after participating in Doha (he beat Evans, fell to Basilashvili). It will also be his first participation in brick dust in almost 2 years, since he was eliminated by Rafael Nadal in the semifinals of Roland Garros 2019.
