Roberto Carballés will not be able to repeat or improve on the result he achieved last year at Roland Garros when he reached the third round. The player born in Tenerife 28 years ago could not overcome this time in his debut Mikael Ymer, who rallied 2-1 to win by 6-4, 0-6, 4-6, 6-2 and 6-2 in 3:36. The 22nd and 105th Swedish in the world will face the winner of the duel between Albert Ramos and Gael Monfils.
Carballés is the second Spanish tennis player to be eliminated by Ymer in a Grand Slam this year, after defeating Carlos Alcaraz in the second round of the Australian Open. He had never faced Roberto, who had just won Monfils in Belgrade, where he reached the quarterfinals from the previous one. Ymer played very aggressively and with his 45 winners he countered the 66 unforced errors he made during the five sets. Carballés was not helped at all by his serve.
