Colombian tennis player Alejandro Falla advanced to the third round of the Australian Open following a three-set win over Spaniard Marcel Granollers.
Falla beat his Spanish opponent 6-4 in the first set, then dominated the second with a 6-1 result and went on to finish with a 6-3 win in the third and final set.
The 26-year-old from Cali had reached seven second rounds in previous Grand Slam tournaments, but never made his way into the third.
In the third round, Falla faces another Spaniard, 26th-placed Nicolas Almagro.
Colombia’s other participant, Santiago Giraldo, who surprisingly beat Tommy Robredo in the opening round, lost 3-1 in sets to Polish Lukasz Kubot.
