ATP Buenos Aires Players 2020

The second of back-to-back tournaments played in Argentina, which has an extremely proud tradition of tennis, in February, the Argentina Open is appropriately headlined by Argentine players in 2020.

Here are some of the players who will be taking to the courts from 10-16 February.

Diego Schwartzman

Schwartzman came close to becoming the Argentina Open’s first homegrown champion since David Nalbandian in 2008 when he reached the final in 2019, only to be denied by Italy’s Marco Cecchinato, who made a surprise run to the semifinals of the French Open the previous year.

Known as ‘Peque’ because of his relatively small stature, Schwartzman has won three ATP Tour titles so far and has made three Grand Slam quarterfinals. The top seed comes into the Argentina Open on fine form after having made the final of the Cordoba Open last week.

Guido Pella

Pella broke into the top 20 in 2019 after posting an extremely successful Golden Swing, winning the title in Sao Paulo, finishing runner-up to Juan Ignacio Londero in Cordoba and making the semifinals in Buenos Aires.

A quarterfinalist at Wimbledon last year, Pella reached the third round of the Australian Open this January and will be looking to make the sixth ATP Tour final of his career in Buenos Aires this year – all of the previous six have come on clay.

Dusan Lajovic

Serbia’s Lajovic returns to the Argentina Open in 2020 after breaking into the top 25 in 2019, a season which saw him win his first ATP Tour title in Umag as well as putting together a brilliant run to the final of the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters.

Lajovic beat David Goffin, Dominic Thiem and Daniil Medvedev before finishing runner-up to Fabio Fognini in Monte Carlo. He began his 2020 season by compiling a 4-2 win-loss record, including wins over top-25 players Karen Khachanov and Felix Auger-Aliassime, to help Serbia win the ATP Cup.

Borna Coric

Making his Argentina Open debut in 2020 is 23-year-old Coric, looking for his first ATP Tour title on clay since triumphing in Marrakech in 2016.

Coric was ranked as high as world no. 12 in 2018 after beating Roger Federer to win the Halle 500 and going on to reach his first Masters 1000 Series final in Shanghai. He struggled to maintain that position in the rankings in 2019 but still made the St Petersburg 250 final and reached Masters 1000 Series quarterfinals in Miami and Monte Carlo.

 

About ATP Buenos Aires

The reorganised ATP World Tour calendar in 2016 saw the Buenos Aires event return to its old schedule as one of the early events of the spring run of clay-court events in South America known as the ‘Golden Swing’. In 2015, the Argentina Open trialled a new position as the last spring clay-court event – taking place directly after the 500 Rio Open – although it has since been re-scheduled to take place in the week leading up to the Rio Open, directly after the new ATP 250 tournament in Cordoba. ATP Sao Paulo is then played the following week before players turn their attention to the hard-court events of March in the USA, Indian Wells and Miami.

The Argentine capital of Buenos Aires – and the outdoor clay-courts of the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club, known as the ‘Cathedral of Argentine Tennis’ – have played host to some of the world’s best clay-court players since 1993 when the Argentina Open was first played, Carlos Costa defeating Alberto Berasategui in the final to become the first winner of the ATP Buenos Aires event.

Costa’s triumph inaugurated a tradition of Spanish success at the Argentina Open which continues up to the present day. Of the 14 different winners in Buenos Aires since 1993, seven have been Spanish and Spanish players have dominated the past eight years of the Argentina Open – Tommy Robredo (2009), Juan Carlos Ferrero (2010), Nicolas Almagro (2011), David Ferrer (2012-14) and Rafael Nadal (2015) between them have claimed the trophy for Spain every year since 2009 until Dominic Thiem broke the Spanish stranglehold with a win over Nicolas Almagro in the 2016 final. The 2017 final showdown was the first time a Spaniard had failed to reach the Argentina Open final since 2008, with Alexandr Dolgopolov downing top seed Kei Nishikori in straight sets to claim the title. Thiem returned to the winners circle in 2018, taking out Aljaz Bedene in straight sets to secure his second Argentina Open title.

Homegrown players have also been an important part of the Argentina Open, with Guillermo Coria (2004), Gaston Gaudio (2005), Juan Monaco (2007) and David Nalbandian (2008) all capturing the title to thrill the Buenos Aires – with Javier Frana (1994), Jose Acasuso (2001), Agustin Calleri (2002) and Juan Ignacio Chela (2011) also reaching finals in Buenos Aires.
