Special day for Argentines at the US Open. The four who are still in the singles career, in the second round, play this Wednesday in the fourth and last Grand Slam of the year. After the dream day at the opening, Diego Schwartzman (14th in the world), Guido Pella (85th) see action again and Facundo Bagnis (80th) and Marco Trungelliti are measured (198 °).
