Australian Open: Arthur Fils off to a good start

Arthur Fils, hope of French tennis at 19, took his very first steps at the Australian Open by mastering the Czech Jiri Vesely, ex-top 40 who fell to around 300th place in the world, 4-6, 7- 5, 6-2, 6-3 Tuesday.

Son played the first match of his career on the courts of Melbourne Park under the scorching Australian sun.

For almost two sets, the young Frenchman suffered against the thirty-year-old Czech, impressing on serve and in his first shots.

But he managed to find the fault in the “money time” of the second round, shortly after Vesely, visibly suffering from the heat, called the doctor, who notably took his blood pressure.

Returning to a set everywhere, the 34th player in the world, accompanied by Sébastien Grosjean in Melbourne, then definitively took control of the match and won in less than three hours (2h44 min).

In the second round, Son will face the Dutchman Tallon Griekspoor (31st) or the Russian Roman Safiullin (36th).
