Marco Trungelliti grabbed the opportunity he was given and turned it into a success story.
Having been disqualified in the last qualifying round, the Argentinian was informed at the last minute to take the position as a lucky loser on the main board (due to the withdrawal of Kyrgios and the commitment of the first runner-up lucky loser).
The Argentinian tennis player had already returned to Barcelona, which is his European base, where his relatives, including his grandmother, were waiting for him. And while he was making preparations to guide them to the city, the shots suddenly changed and he began preparing for the trip back to Paris.
Together with his brother, mother and grandmother, he started a 9-hour trip from Barcelona to Paris to meet Bernard Tomic on Monday morning in the first round of Roland Garros.
He did well, though with only 5 hours of sleep, he beat his opponent with 3-1 sets, qualifying for the next round of Roland Garros.
