Pablo Carreno Busta, Roland Garros 2016

The world number 43 had solid results this year with two finals in Bueno Aires and Estoril. I don’t know much about this player but he seems a good guy and it looked like he enjoyed his one-hour practice on the Lenglen.
He will face Federico Delbonis in the first round.
