American tennis player John Isner (19th of the ATP) admitted not being very aware of how Chilean Alejandro Tabilo plays (208th), his rival in the second round of the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the season. Asked about the third national racket, the American ‘giant’ told La Tercera that «I have no idea who I will play against, what Tabilo is like. Actually, I know he’s a Chilean guy who comes from the leaderboards, so he has to be playing really well.» I also know he’s left-handed, because I saw him on the court when I walked past my game. As far as I can appreciate, I don’t know much about my opponent,» he added. In addition, the winner of 14 ATP 250 tournaments and the 2018 Miami Masters 1000 noted that «Tabilo will have quite a public enthusing it, always the Chileans manage to support their own. I didn’t know anything about my first-round rival either. It’s unusual for a Grand Slam to have to play in front of unknown tennis players right away.» Isner counts as the best ranking of his career in eighth place in July 2018.Tabilo and the Tampa wineman will face each other on Thursday in the last shift of Court 22 of Melbourne Park, at about 01:30 on a Chilean time.
