The good way is over Sebastian Baez in Sydney. The Argentine, after qualifying and winning in the main draw debut, said goodbye in the tournament prior to the Australian Open.
This time, the 95th in the world ranking gave up 6-2 and 6-3 against Italian Lorenzo Sonego (27th in the world ranking and 5th seed in the tournament).
The 21-year-old from Buenos Aires, it is worth noting, came from the qualy and from add his second ATP victory (the previous one in 2021 in Hamburg) to virtually climb some eight positions in the ATP ranking.
It is an adaptation tour for the Argentine who in 2021 obtained six Challengers tournaments to get into the top 100 in the world ranking and is already getting ready to play his first Grand Slam tournament.
The Sydney ATP, a prelude to the Australian Open that will take place from next Monday in Melbourne, is played on fast surface courts and distributes a total of 521 dollars in prizes.
