Colombia’s Santiago Giraldo has lost in straight sets to Croatian Marin Cilic in the second round of the Australian Open tennis match in Melbourne.
The 23-year-old Colombian matched his 2010 performance at the first Grand Slam event of the year by reaching the second round but could not find a way past the six foot six inch Croatian, who is the 15th seed and reached the semi-finals at this event last year.
The final score was 6-1 7-6 6-3, as Giraldo, the world No. 59, rallied in the second set but ultimately could not find a breakthrough.
Giraldo’s exit means that there are no more Colombians left in the draw following Alejandro Falla’s straight sets defeat to Feliciano Lopez in the first round.
