Tennis: Arthur Fils passes the first round in Estoril

The young Frenchman Arthur Fils, 19, eliminated Joao Sousa, 35, 7-5, 6-4 in the first round of the ATP 250 tournament in Estoril, the last tournament of the Portuguese veteran's career.

Alternating between the good and the less good, but without ever completely losing the thread of the match, Fils, seeded N.5 in the Portuguese tournament, was able to be decisive on the most important points, notably winning 3 break points out of 6 (compared to only 1 in 4 for his opponent).

More efficient on serve (64% of first serves, 75% of points won behind his first serve), Fils won in 1 hour 50 minutes against the 272nd player in the world, the highest ranked Portuguese player in history (N . 28 in 2016). He will face Chilean Cristian Garin in the next round.
