Taberner beats Napolitano and advances at Roland Garros

The Valencian, recent champion in Iasi, beat the Italian tennis player and joins the list of Spaniards who will be in the second previous round of the Parisian Grand Slam.

Carlos Taberner, recent Iasi ATP Challenger champion, will also be in the second qualifying round at Roland Garros after beating Italian Stefano Napolitano in two sets pro 6-4 and 7-5.

Taberner, who faced Napolitano after the last minute loss of Chilean Alejandro Tabilo due to peritonitis, was very solid on serve (71% of games won with his first service) in addition to taking advantage of three of the eight breaks available to him and only one yielded against. The Valencian will be measured in the second round against Argentine Leo Mayer, who got rid of Canadian Peter Polansky 7-5 and 6-0.

Today's match in the men's preview left us several surprises such as the defeat of Viktor Troicki against the Portuguese Frederico Ferreira Silva (6-0 and 6-2) and that of the Latvian Ernest Gulbis at the hands of Marco Cecchinato (6-3 and 7 -5) .

This Tuesday there is broad Spanish representation in the women's qualifying phase with the matches of Eva Guerrero (against Jessika Ponchet), Nuria Parrizas (against Tessah Andrianjahostimo) and Cristina Bucsa (against Rebecca Sramkova) .
