Argentina's doubles, eliminated from Tokyo

The Argentines’ debut in the men’s tennis doubles table was not the best. The pairs of Diego Schwartzman-Facundo Bagnis and Andrés Molteni-Horacio Zeballos were left out in the first round of the Olympic Games.

Schwartzman-Bagnis lost to the German team made up of Kevin Krawietz (15th in doubles) and Tim Puetz (33rd in doubles). The result that marked the defeat of the Albicelestes was 6-2 and 6-1 in one hour of play. The Europeans dominated the Argentines from start to finish and their great production served to get into the second phase of the contest.

Despite the fall, Peque and Bagnis will continue in competition due to the fact that they dispute the singles category. Schwartzman will debut against Juan Pablo Varillas (122 °) while the Rosario will do the same against Dominik Koepfer (57 °).

What’s more, Zeballos and Molteni fell to British Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski 6-7 (3), 6-4 and 13-11 in a match with endless opportunities for both sides. In fact, the Argentines ran from behind in the super tiebreak, raised two match points and had one in favor that they could not take advantage of.
