Calviá (Mallorca), June 22 (EFE).- Tennis players Pablo Carreño and Roberto Carballés will star in the Spanish duel in the first round of the Mallorca Championships grass tournament that is being held on the courts of the Country Club in the Majorcan town of SantaPonça.

Carreño will play his first ATP 250 tournament since the right elbow injury that kept him out of competition for nine months. Elasturiano returned to top competition in the last RolandGarros tournament; He fell in the first round against the Italian Mariano Navone (7-5; 1-6; 3-6 and 0-6).

Likewise, the Spaniards Jaime Munar and Jaime Martínez will face the Austrian Sebastian Ofner and the Argentine competing for Italy Luciano Dardieri in the first round, respectively.

This Saturday, in the previous phase, the Mallorcan Joan Nadal, cousin of Rafael Nadal and who competed at the invitation of the organizers, was eliminated, losing 6-1 and 6-2 against the British Paul Jubb. Four tennis players will try to access the main draw in the duels in which they will star. Thiago Monteiro (Brazil) – Paul Jubb (Great Britain); Maximilian Marterer (Germany) – Abdella Shelbayt (Jordan); Constant Lestienne (France) – Gijs Brouwer (Netherlands) and Adam Walton (Australia) – Daniel Masur (Germany).

Regarding the list of seeds exempt from the first round, the American Ben Shelton (number 1 in the tournament) awaits a rival in the duel between the Italian Luca Nardi and the Australian Rinky Hijikata.

Likewise, the Frenchman Ugo Humbert (2) will do the same waiting for Roberto Bautista or the Japanese-American Taro Daniel.

The Brazilian Adrian Mannarino (3) awaits the Portuguese Nuno Borges or the American Alexander Michelsen, while the Chilean Alejandro Tabilo will face the naturalized Russian Kazakh Alexander Shevchenko or a player who leaves the qualifying phase.
