María Lourdes Carlé (261st) debuted in the WTA 125 in Buenos Aires, a tournament that was played again in the country after 34 years, and said goodbye after a level match that could have been turned in his favor. Nevertheless, Greek Despina Papamichail (199th) won 3-6, 6-2 and 6-2.
The 21-year-old from Dero, a sensation player in the Billie Jean King Cup, played great tennis on the court Guillermo Vilas and battled until the last moment. The match had many possibilities of break for both tennis players but it was the Greek who knew how to better capitalize on those opportunities.
However, the public present at the Argentina Open, which suffered the resounding decline of Nadia podoroska (currently 84th in the world), gave a warm farewell to the Argentinian representative, who demonstrated her potential in the historic Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club stadium.
After two hours and 16 minutes, the 28-year-old European tennis player got into the round of 16 and will face each other with Solana Sierra, semifinalist in the last US Open Junior and what is the other Argentinian who already got into the second round.
For this Wednesday, there is the presentation in the first round of the also local Martina capurro (arising from the qualy) and Victoria Bosio.
