In the second round, Rafa will play the winner of the match between a qualifier and Juan Monaco.
Alexandr Dolgopolov and Pablo Andujar are in his quarter. John Isner and Dominic Thiem are in his half. David Ferrer, Fabio Fognini, Pablo Cuevas and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga all feature in the opposite side of the draw in Buenos Aires.
