French Open 2018: Marco Trungelliti's adventure at Roland Garros ends with second-round loss to Marco Cecchinato
Trungelliti drove from Barcelona with his grandmother, mother and younger brother to sign in as a Lucky Loser to claim a place in the main draw.
Paris: Marco Trungelliti's Roland Garros adventure came to an end on Wednesday, when the Argentine who made an 11th-hour, 1,000km hire car dash with his 88-year-old granny to reach the tournament on time, finally ran out of gas.
Trungelliti, who drove from Barcelona with his grandmother, mother and younger brother to sign in as a Lucky Loser to claim a place in the main draw, was beaten 6-1 7-6(1) 6-1 by Italian Marco Cecchinato.
It was a low-key exit for the man who had been the talk of the tournament but having beaten Australia's Bernard Tomic in his opener, his exploits over the last few days have earned him €79,000.
