The Portuguese tennis player Pedro Sousa, 105th-ranked world player, qualified for the knockout round of the ‘challenger’ tournament in Murcia on Saturday by beating host Gerard Granoller-Pujol, 450th.

The first seed in the race, who was exempt from the opening round, took to the ground in two sets for the 6-2 and 6-3 in one hour and 12 minutes.

Pedro Sousa completely dominated the initial set, in which he reached 4-0, contrary to what happened in the second, where he was losing 3-0 after suffering the first and only ‘break’ in the whole meeting.
