Talking about the performance in the first round, Cuevas had to earn the victory in a hard-fought match. Up against Henri Laaksonen, the 34-year-old Uruguayan came back after losing a set to beat Laaksonen 6-1, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2.

On the other hand, two sets down, Tsitsipas was looking down and out and was heading towards a shocking upset. However, the 22-year old Greek showed why he is the upcoming flag-bearer of tennis as he stunningly turned around the contest on its head and edged past Jaume Munar 4-6, 2-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 in a five-set thriller.

Tsitsipas may win this contest, but he would have to wait for maybe the next round for a straight-set victory.
