A little less than a month after his crazy fortnight at Porte d’Auteuil, there will have been no new exploits for Hugo Gaston. For his first participation in the Masters 1000 in Paris, the Frenchman was swept away in 1:09 by the 15th player in the ATP ranking, Pablo Carreno Busta (6-3, 6-2), well above his opponent, despite a game still also attractive of the Habs. The Spaniard will face Jan-Lennard Struff in the next round.

Because his performances at the beginning of September at Roland-Garros remain extraordinary for a player of his age (20) and his status (now 161st in the world), this one-sided match must not be lost against one of the best players in the world. circuit will tarnish the happy new year 2020 of Hugo Gaston. If he was no match for the semi-finalist of the last US Open, for his return to the ATP circuit, the Toulouse player again showed his panoply and his talent, for his first appearance in the main draw of a Masters 1000.

Gaston, a station wagon and then goes out

Always so little prey to doubts, to shyness mistakes that any other player in his category could commit, the 8th finalist of Roland Garros even allowed himself to break from the start against Carreno Busta, and let think that he could afford a new world top 20, after Stan Wawrinka. But if his forehand remains as surprising as it is delicious, the young Frenchman still lacks the consistency, especially in the service, necessary to get rid of a metronome like the seed number 9.

Sometimes too hasty to reach the net, too daring on certain shots and above all too crumbly behind his second service ball (only 28% of points gained behind), he saw his opponent make a big turnaround, winning 5 games of straight to go from 0-2 to 5-2 in the first act. With this desire to play forward, especially on the opposing second serves where he often left from inside the court to return, Gaston was not unworthy but he never made doubt the Spaniard after the gain of the first round.

But who says Hugo Gaston says panache, and even led 5-1 in the second round and on the edge of the exit, the player at meter 73 has never renounced his tennis, and this allowed him to save two match points d ‘first, to return to 5-2, before pushing his opponent to play four more to finally give in. Always so serious and diligent, Carreno Busta was able to savor the second success of his career (for his 5th participation) in the Paris-Bercy tournament, before trying to move on to the next round against Struff.
