SANTIAGO.- It is the end of this road for Nicolás Massú (ATP No.120) at the Roland Garros Grand Slam Tournament, after he was defeated today during the second round of the championship by Swiss player Stanislas Wawrinka (ATP No.18) with scores of 6-1, 6-1 and 6-2 in 1 hour and 14 minutes.

It was for this reason that many thought Massú could still possibly move on in the Paris championship.
