Bagnis lost and was unable to continue advancing in Melbourne

Its beginning had been more than promising, but the illusion came to an end. Facundo Bagnis (76th in the world ranking) fell to Grigor Dimitrov (28th) by 5-7, 7-6 (3) and 6-3 and said goodbye in the second round of the Melbourne ATP 250.

The Argentine was excited not only because of his great level, but also because he had left on the road in the first round nothing more and nothing less than Andy Murray (134th), the former No. 1 against whom he played great tennis.

Against Dimitrov he had a good start and managed to win the first set, although Little by little, the experienced 30-year-old tennis player uncovered his 8 ATP title champion badge.

In this way, the Santa Fe said goodbye but left a good national performance on Australian soil, where 16 Argentines had embarked on a trip with the illusion of returning with a trophy.
