5-2 for Carreo. To a game of triumph. The Asturian very close to taking fulfilled revenge for their controversial defeat against Japan in the round of 16 in Australia in 2019, when Nishikori rallied two sets against. It was the only time they had met until today.

Well, this is not a good day for French tennis. To the street another of its seeds. Benoit Paire (25) loses in four sets against Belarusian Egor Gerasimov by 6-2, 2-6, 7-6 (5) and 7-5.

Anyway, the most promising match of the Australian night (there are ten hours difference between Melbourne and mainland Spain) is the one to face the Canadian Denis Shapovalov in front of the promising Italian Jannik Sinner, which already slipped into the Roland Garros quarters last year.

Carreo is the third and last of the Spaniards entering the fray today. Tomorrow the remaining eleven will debut, seven in the men’s box and the four girls.

Today two Spaniards with mixed luck have already played. Pedro Martnez has won in three sets the Japanese Noshihito Nishioka and for the moment it matches the second round of last year. Things were worse for Albert Ramos, defeated by American Taylor Frtiz.
