British No 2 Cameron Norrie had no answers for the questions asked by Pedro Cachin as he went down in straight sets in the Cordoba Open first round.

Argentine qualifier Cachin won his first ATP Tour match as he beat world No 64 Norrie 6-4, 6-4 in one hour and 20 minutes on the red dirt.

The 23-year-old broke in the opening game of the match and then in game nine of the second set before serving it out to claim his maiden win on Tour.

Next up is fourth seed Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain.

It was a good day for the Argentines as Guido Pella also booked his second-round ticket with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Paolo Lorenzi from Italy.

Tunisian Malek Jaziri, though, accounted for Carlos Berlocq’s exit as he beat the Argentine wildcard 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (7-4).

Slovenia’s Aljaz Bedene, meanwhile, earned himself a clash with top seed Fabio Fognini after beating Maximilian Marterer from Germany 6-3, 6-4.
