Renzo Olivo (199 °) fell to Roberto Carballes Baena (85 °) 7-5, 7-5 after more than two hours of action, was eliminated in the first round of Indian Wells and, despite having passed the classification , continues to miss a Masters 1000 win in four main draw appearances.
The Argentine had a good performance in the desert of California, despite the defeat on Thursday: he had come from beating the Japanese Shintaro Mochizuki and the Italian Andrea Arnaboldi to successfully cross the classification. However, in a highly contested match, Spaniard Carballes Baena put an end to his dream and delivered his fourth straight loss at the Masters 1000, his third at Indian Wells.
In 2016, after avoiding qualifying, his debut had been against the French Nicolás Mahut (44th at the time), who defeated him 6-2, 6-4. The following year he returned straight from the main draw, but was overtaken by Jiri Vesely (56th) with partials of 6-4, 2-6, 6-1.
His last participation in competitions of this category had taken place in Monte Carlo 2017, when he passed the previous phase but could not before Albert Ramos-Viñolas and lost 6-2, 6-3 to him, ultimately, a finalist of that edition in the Principality.
