Cristian Garín arrived at the ATP 250 in Gstaad with the status, neither more nor less, than second seed. Unique opportunity for the Chilean to reach important instances and, why not, add a new title to his showcase.
His debut came against the Australian Marc Polmans, from the previous phase, and the South American tennis player showed an absolutely overwhelming version: 6-3, 6-0 in a duel that lasted just over 50 minutes and that he showed that the conditions in Switzerland are to his liking.
Already in the quarterfinals, the other side of the network will appear Hugo Gaston, who gave the surprise by beating Federico Delbonis in a very even duel: 6-0, 6-7 (2) and 7-6 (3).
Also, bad news for Roberto Bautista. In his debut he yielded with Arthur Rinderknech on the fast track (6-2 and 6-4).
