Argentine tennis player Sebastián Báez (N.36) qualified for the second round of Roland Garros after beating Serbian Dusan Lajovic (N.64) 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 on Monday.
The young Báez, 21 years old, showed that he is in a great moment of form - he was a quarter-finalist in Lyon last week, losing to the subsequent champion, the British Cameron Norrie - to prevail against a dangerous rival like the Serbian (finalist in Monte Carlo -2019) in 2h28 of play.
rose in the ranking
The Argentine, number 36 in the world, reached this Monday after the update made by the Association of Professional Tennis Players (ATP).
The 21-year-old from Buenos Aires, who this season, won his first title in the major circuit (Estoril), rose two positions, favored by the decline of Chilean Cristian Marin (37th) and South African Lloyd Harris (39th), a fact that placed him as the second best South American player today after Diego Schwartzman (16th).
In the "top ten" there were no changes this week: 1) Novak Djokovic (Serbia); 2) Daniil Medvedev (Russia); 3) Alexander Zverev (Germany); 4) Stefanos Tsitsipas (Greece); 5) Rafael Nadal (Spain); 6) Carlos Alcaraz (Spain); 7) Andrey Rublev (Russia); 8) Casper Ruud (Norway); 9) Felix Auger-Aliassime (Canada) and 10) Matteo Berrettini (Italy).
