The 28-year-old Argentine tennis player achieved the biggest win of his career and qualified for the third round of the French Open in his first time in the main draw. He won 7-6, 4-6, 6-3 and 6-1: now he will face the winner of Bonzi-Sinner
Federico Coria achieved the most outstanding hit of his career: he eliminated Frenchman Benoit Paire in four sets at his home and qualified for the third round of Roland Garros . The Argentine, who debuted as the Top 100 in recent days, won 7-6, 4-6, 6-3 and 6-1 to remove the 26th ATP player from the tournament .
In a game that lasted for more than two and a half hours, the Mago’s younger brother – a finalist at the French Open in 2004 – confirmed the good moment he is having this season and managed to qualify for a third phase in his first performance at Roland Garros at 28 .
Fede is currently the 99th in the world and Paire arrived ranked as the 23rd seeded to the contest. It is the most important victory of his career, taking into account that in February of this year he reached the quarterfinals of an ATP tournament for the first time in his career during the ATP 500 in Rio de Janeiro , where he said goodbye after falling to the Chilean Cristian Garín.
Weeks ago he had another outstanding victory in the debut within the main draw of the Masters 1000 in Rome after overcoming all qualification: he eliminated the German Jan-Lennard Struff, 30 of the world . Later, he was defeated by the Italian Matteo Berrettini.
His next challenge at Roland Garros will take place with the search for the ticket to the round of 16 in the duel he will have against the winner of the match between the French Benjamin Bonzi (227 of the world) and the Italian Jannik Sinner (75 of the planet) in the last shift of the day.
It was not the only good news for Argentine tennis at Roland Garros during this day: Rosario Nadia Podoroska also hit the table to eliminate Kazakh Yulia Putintseva (27 in the world) and qualified for the third round. Diego Schwartzman, for his part, confirmed his good level and beat Italian Lorenzo Giustino in three sets .
Coria, who was suspended in 2018 for failing to forward the contact of a bettor who tried to bribe him to fix a result, is contesting a Grand Slam main draw for the second time in his life . Weeks ago he managed to win in his debut at the US Open against Jason Jung, but was eliminated in the second phase by Britain’s Cameron Norrie.
After that suspension, he began a new stage in his career, the best without a doubt. In May 2019, he won his only title at the Savannah Challenger and began a frantic climb to the Top 100 just days ago.
This victory for Coria adds an extra flavor because Paire had achieved his best performance at Roland Garros in 2019, reaching the round of 16 and saying goodbye after being defeated by the Japanese Kei Nishikori in a duel adjusted to five sets. At 31, the European has accumulated three titles at the ATP level (two of them last year in Lyon and Marrakech), in addition to having lost six other finals .
