Albert Ramos advances to the quarterfinals in Córdoba

Spanish tennis player Albert Ramos returns a ball during his match against Frenchman Lucas Pouille at the US Open 2021.

The Spanish tennis player Albert Ramos advanced this Thursday to the quarterfinals in the ATP tournament in Córdoba (Argentina) with the withdrawal of his rival the Peruvian Juan Pablo Varillaswhere it will now be measured against the Italian Lorenzo Sonego, who got off the also Spanish Roberto Carballés (4-6, 7-6(1), 6-2), while Carlos Taberner could not advance either, surpassed by the Chilean Alejandro Tabilo (6-2, 6-4).

Ramos added a new victory on Argentine soil, although this time with the abandonment of Varillas, after scoring the first set. The Catalan, who arrived in Córdoba without victories in 2022, is now in the quarterfinals of a tournament in which he was a finalist last year.

The South American player suffered an ankle injury that prevented him from fighting in the second half, after a 6-4 draw in the first. Ramos will seek the semifinals against a Sonego who took a tight fight against Carballés. After almost three hours and after losing the first set, the Italian avoided the Spanish duel.

The Catalan tennis player remained the only option for the ‘Armada’ in the tournament since the Valencian Carlos Taberner was also eliminated by the Chilean Alejandro Tabilo, who prevailed with solvency 6-2, 6-4, despite the fact that the Spaniard had a ‘break’ advantage in the second set.
