ATP Cordoba 2020 Players

Here are some of the headline players who are choosing to kick off their Golden Swing in Cordoba in 2020.

Diego Schwartzman

Argentina’s no. 1, Diego ‘Peque’ Schwartzman – nicknamed for his diminutive stature – will lead the draw at the Cordona Open in 2020. Currently ranked world no. 14, Schwartzman is looking for his fourth ATP Tour career title in Cordoba and his first on home soil, having finished runner-up in Buenos Aires in 2019.

Guido Pella

Schwartzman is joined by Argentina’s second highest-ranked player in Guido Pella, world no. 25. Champion on the Golden Swing in Sao Paulo in 2019, Pella fell short of claiming the Cordoba Open title 12 months ago when he finished runner-up to Juan Ignacio Londero – will he go one better this year?

Cristian Garin

Another South African star in the ATP Cordoba draw is Chile’s rising star Cristian Garin. The 23-year-old hit a career-high ranking of world no. 32 in 2019 after winning ATP 250 titles on clay in Munich and Houston, and reaching a third final in Sao Paulo where he finished runner-up to Pella.

Lazslo Djere

Serbia’s Djere hit a career-high ranking of world no. 27 in 2019 after storming to an unlikely victory at the 500-level Rio Open, beating then-world no. 8 Dominic Thiem in the first round and Felix Auger-Aliassime in the final.

About ATP Cordoba

A new addition to the ATP Tour calendar in 2019, the Cordoba Open replaces the Ecuador Open as the first stop on the ‘Golden Swing’.

Known as the ‘Golden Swing’ in honour of Chile’s Nicolas Massu and Fernando Gonzalez, gold medalists in tennis at the 2000 Athens Olympics, the Cordoba Open is followed by stops in Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, offering the world’s best players the opportunity to exchange chilly indoor European tournaments for the heat and atmosphere of South America’s clay courts. Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer and Dominic Thiem are among the top players who have both popularized and triumphed on the Golden Swing in recent years.

The tournament now known as the Cordoba Open was originally the Chile Open, played in either Vina del Mar or Santiago between 1993 and 2014, although it was not until 2001 that it assumed its role of kicking off the Golden Swing as the series itself took shape, with Argentina’s Guillermo Coria winning the title that year.

In 2015, the tournament relocated to the capital of Ecuador, Quito, and became known as the Ecuador Open. With the city located 2,800 metres above sea level, players often struggled in the altitude conditions, perhaps helping to explain why and how Ecuador’s own Victor Estrella Burgos pulled off an extraordinary triple triumph in 2015-17, defeating Feliciano Lopez, Thomaz Bellucci and Paolo Lorenzi in subsequent finals. Roberto Carballes Baena was the surprise champion in 2018, beating Albert Ramos-Vinolas in an all-Spanish final.

From 2019, the tournament became the Cordoba Open, Argentina’s second ATP Tour event and now forming the first leg of a double bill of Argentine 250s played in back-to-back weeks with the Argentina Open in Buenos Aires constituting the second leg.

Cordoba, a city known for its Spanish colonial architecture, is 435 miles northwest of Buenos Aires and has hosted various international sporting events including FIFA World Cup qualifying matches. The Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes, originally built for the 1978 World Cup and renovated in 2011-12, has a capacity of 57,000 and will be the venue for the new ATP 250 event, featuring a 4,270-seat Centre Court, a 1,000-seat Court 1 and 500-seat Court 2.

Offering prize money of $527,880 as well as 250 ranking points to the winner, the Cordoba Open is guaranteed to be a popular stop on the ATP Tour with clay-loving players looking to kick off their Golden Swing in winning style.
