Fresh from his second career title in Florence, with a few days to rest and relocate as he’s a top-four seed in Antwerp, Félix Auger-Aliassime finally took the court Thursday against a lucky loser. And he won in straight sets.

Diego Schwartzman and Karen Khachanov also made their singles debuts – and were one and done.

And Schwartzman, playing with the … long retired Xavier Malisse, found himself a winner in their first round and will play the quarterfinal later on Thursday.

As for Naples, well, it’s complicated …
