Melbourne, Jan 17 (IANS) Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta on Thursday beat Belarusian Ilya Ivashka 6-3, 6-3, 7-6(7) in a second-round match of the Australian Open.
The 23rd seed, who had taken five sets to beat Italian qualifier Luca Vanni in the first round, won the first two sets easily on Thursday but faced more resistance from Ivashka in the third, reports Efe news.
Ivashka managed to break Carreno Busta's serve, but the Spaniard broke back and forced a tie-breaker, in which the Belarusian committed a double-fault at 7-7 and ended up conceding the match.
In the 3rd round, Carreno Busta is set to face 12th seed Italian Fabio Fognini, who beat Argentina's Leonardo Mayer in straight sets.
The Spaniard had reached the Australian Open pre-quarterfinals in 2018, where he lost to eventual finalist Marin Cilic of Croatia.
