Canada’s ninth seed, Felix Auger-Aliassime, returned from the first round of the French Open, conceding two sets against Juan Pablo Varilas in the qualifying round.

The 21-year-old survived Philippe Chatrier’s horrific horror after world-ranked 122nd Peruvian Barillas made a dream start in his Grand Slam debut.

Auger-Aliassime eventually won 2-6 2-6 6-1 6-3 6-3, ending the wait for a final victory over Roland Garros.

He will face next Russian Aslan Karatsev or qualifier Camilo Ugo Carabelli.

The Canadian, who made their first major quarterfinals at Wimbledon last summer, advanced to the US Open quarterfinals before reaching the quarterfinals at the Australian Open in January.

However, he set his second best early against 26-year-old Barillas and came on the course for a shocking early red card from Paris as the Peruvian broke two serves in both sets in the opening day.

Roland Garros’ junior finalist Auger-Aliassime reunited as momentum shifted in his favor in the third set, leading to a tie in the fourth set as well.

In a much closer decisive set, world ninth was able to make the decisive breakthrough in Game 8, providing a match to complete a wonderful comeback and secure their first French Open draw on the third attempt.
