Tennis: Muller and Mayot continue their adventure in Montpellier

Alexandre Muller (71st) qualified for the second round of the ATP 250 tournament in Montpellier by beating Antoine Escoffier (172nd), whose first match in the final draw of an ATP tournament was at age 31, 7-6 (7/4), 6-3, Monday. Muller, 26, quarter-finalist in Auckland at the beginning of January, will meet American Michael Mmoh (133rd) for a place in the quarters. Harold Mayot (21 years old, 144th), another recent quarter-finalist of an ATP 250 - it was in Metz last November -, won the first round match between two invited players, against Lucas Pouille (29 years, 315th), 6-4, 7-5.

To try to once again reach the quarters of an ATP 250, Mayot will meet the returning Benoît Paire (112th), who won his first match on the main circuit since August 2022 against Andy Murray the day before.

For his first appearance in the final draw of an ATP tournament, Ugo Blanchet, 25 years old (214th), believed in it for a set before losing in three against Grégoire Barrère (104th), winner 6-7 (7/9) , 6-4, 6-2.

The left-handed duel between Hugo Gaston (88th), 23 years old, whose particularity is to never bounce his ball before serving, and Denis Shapovalov, 24 years old (137th), largely turned in favor of the Canadian. Shapovalov crushed the Toulouse player 6-1, 6-3 in 1 h 06 min and will challenge the Kazakh Alexander Bublik in the round of 16, seeded N.2 and winner in Montpellier in 2022. In this tournament including the title holder, Jannik Sinner , winner of the Australian Open on Sunday, is absent this year, two other French people will take to the track in the evening.

Richard Gasquet (130th), representing the older generation at 37, will face Pablo Llamas, a young 21-year-old Spaniard, 156th, who came out of qualifying. Arthur Cazaux (83rd) embodies the short story at 21 years old. One of the sensations of the Australian Open, where he reached the round of 16, will face the German Maximilian Marterer (92nd).
