ATP roundup: Lorenzo Sonego advances in Sydney

Fifth-seeded Lorenzo Sonego overcame a one-set deficit to post a 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 victory over Frenchman Hugo Gaston on Monday in a Round of 32 match in the Sydney Classic in Australia.

While Sonego needed 2 hours and 42 minutes to advance, fellow Italian Fabio Fognini had a much easier time of it in his match. The seventh-seeded Fognini fired seven aces and made 81 percent of his first serve points in a 6-3, 7-5 win over lucky loser Daniel Altmaier of Germany, who replaced Nick Kyrgios after the Australian pulled out due to testing positive for COVID-19.

Eighth-seeded David Goffin of Belgium recorded a 6-4, 6-4 win over Facundo Bagnis of Argentina, while Australian wild card Jordan Thompson secured a 6-4, 6-2 victory over Marcos Giron.
