With everything Gustavo Fernández (flagged in Rio 2016) started at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo. At full speed for 6-0 and 6-1 against the Spaniard Francesc Tur in 57 minutes of the game.
The winner of five Grand Slam tournaments will play his next match against the winner of Ben Weekes (Australia) and Jef Vandorpe (Belgium).
The other Argentine winner at the premiere of the Japanese event was Ezequiel Casco (6-0 and 6-0 a Martyn Dunn).
Meanwhile, there were defeats by Florencia Moreno (6-0 and 6-1 for the local Kamiji, No. 2 in the world) and Agustín Ledesma (double 6-1 by the Spanish Martín de la Puente).
What’s more, Chile wants to dream with Alexander Cataldo (victory vs. DSR Dharmasena, from Sri Lanka, 6-3, 6-4). Now he will face Ruben Spaargaren from the Netherlands. In addition, Jaime Sepúlveda (vs. Pole Piotr Jaroszewski) fell with partial numbers of 1-6, 6-4 and 6-4. Macarena Cabrillana could do little against the first seed. Diede de Groot took it out 6-1 and 6-0. Same farewell for Colombians Angelica Bernal (6-0 and 6-3 for British Jordanne Whiley) and Johana Martinez (double 6-0 for Chinese Zhenzhen Zhu).

Gustavo Carneiro Silva lost with the South African Leon Els by 1-6, 6-4 and 6-3; Rafael Medeiros fell to Lhaj Boukartacha (Morocco) by 7-5 and 6-1; Daniel Rodrigues could not against Steffans Olsson, from Sweden: 6-3 and 6-2; and Mauricio Pomme succumbed to the power of Sang Ho Oh, from South Korea: 6-3 and 6-2.
In the female branch, Brazil was able to add with the help of Meirycoll Duval. It was 6-4 and 6-4 to Shelby Baron, from the USA, although Ana Caldeira clearly lost with Viktoriia Lvova who represents the Russian Paralympic Committee (6-0 and 6-2).
