Juan Pablo Varillas bids farewell to the US Open: what is coming for our first racket in the coming months?

Juan Pablo Varillas stays out of the US Open.

Juan Pablo Varillas (98th) had a difficult match against the French Grégoire Barrère (167th) on court 14 of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, in Flushing Meadows Park (New York). The Peruvian fell twice 6-2 after an hour and 17 minutes of play for round 1 of the US Open qualifiers.

It was a match where Varillas never felt comfortable on the court and could not turn around the forcefulness of the Frenchman who started the match as a favorite due to his experience on this type of court. Barrère imposed the conditions of the meeting with an excellent service. The Peruvian had five break point opportunities and unfortunately he was unable to make any of them. >

In this way, our first national racket bids farewell to the last Grand Slam of the year with a defeat, but one that should not overshadow everything it has been achieving: reaching to Roland Garros main draw last May and get into the Top 100 of the ATP ranking.

Now the Peruvian athlete will set his sights on his next goal: the Davis Cup. Peru will face Chile in World Group I on September 17 and 18 at the Lawn Tennis Club. After that, Juan Pablo Varillas is not registered in any other tournament yet. The safest thing is that the tennis player and his team evaluate how they will face the remaining months of the year to continue adding points.
