Alcaraz perfectly held the second batch, taking 83 percent on the first filing and playing two Break Point.

In the next match, the Spaniard defeated the former eighth racket of the world of Argentinean Diego Schwartzman – (6:1, 6:3).
In the quarterfinals, the 74th racket of the world beat another representative of Argentina Francisco Cerundolo (6:3, 6:7, 6:3). Before the tournament in Buenos Aires, Bernabe had only one victory this season.
