The 18-year-old recovered from a slow start to defeat Christian Garin 7-5, 6-4 in one hour and 46 minutes. Auger-Aliassime gained sweet revenge on Garin after a three-set defeat against the Chilean last week in the first round of the Argentina Open in Buenos Aires. The Canadian teenager is also guaranteed to claim a new career-high ranking next week with an unprecedented appearance in the top 100.</p><p>Auger-Aliassime will next face Jaume Munar, who needed three hours and 19 minutes to beat Cameron Norrie in the second round of the Rio Open. Munar wasted two match points in the second set he was still able to regroup and win the third set to claim sixth win in the last eight matches. The 21-year-old saved 11 out of 15 break points he faced in the entire match and won 41.13% of the points played on Norrie’s serve. Known as one of the most promising young players on the ATP Tour, Munar is trying to become the first Spaniard to lift the trophy in Rio de Janeiro since David Ferrer in 2015.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the third time in their careers.
