Diego Schwartzman v Francisco Cerundolo Head to Head
Schwartzman had beaten Cerundolo in the Argentina Open final last year to capture his only title of the season.
They will be meeting for the second time on Friday.
Schwartzman Survives Munar Test
Defending champion Diego Schwartzman moved into the quarterfinals in Buenos Aires with a straight sets win over Spain’s Jaume Munar.
The Argentinian may have needed just two sets to win, but such was Munar’s resilience that it took the local favourite two hours and 24 minutes to wrap up a 7-6 (7-2), 7-6 (7-4) victory.
Having broken early in the first set, Schwartzman had a chance to close out the set at 5-4, but Munar got the break back to stay on serve. Schwartzman dominated the tiebreak to seal the first set. In the second, it was Munar who started well, taking a 2-0 lead, but the World No. 15 broke back in the fourth game.
Schwartzman had two match points on Munar’s serve at 4-5 in the second set, but the Spaniard saved both to draw level at 5-5 and then broke the second seed in the next game. Determined not to send the match into the third set, Schwartzman broke again to force the tiebreak. He looked very comfortable in the tiebreak as well, racing to a 6-0 lead, but a resolute Munar refused to surrender, winning the next four points. The Argentine eventually converted a seventh match point to advance.
A four-time champion and eight-time finalist on the tour, the Argentine is 6-3 this year. He was a semifinalist in Cordoba last week, but suffered a shock defeat to Chile’s Alejandro Tabilo.
Cerundolo Continues to Thrive in Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires tends to bring the best out of Francisco Cerundolo. The 23-year-old had reached the final as a qualifier last year and is impressing again in the tournament this year.
Cerundolo, who qualified for the main draw this year as well, reached the last eight with a three-set win over Serbia’s Miomir Kecmanović on Thursday. The World No. 107 saved four of eight break points and converted six of nine to beat the World No. 64, 6-3, 3-6, 6-2.
Cerundolo, who won the Santa Cruz Challenger last month, had qualified for the main draw with straight sets wins over fellow Argentinian Camilo Ugo Carabelli and Germany’s Yannick Hanfmann in the qualifying rounds.
On Tuesday, the right-hander defeated another Argentine Facundo Bagnis 7-5, 6-2 in the opening round of the tournament.
Knocked out by Tabilo in the first round in Cordoba last week, Cerundolo is 7-12 in his career and six of those wins have come in Buenos Aires. Last year, he had reached the final, by beating Pablo Andujar in the quarterfinals and Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the semifinals. He was eventually beaten in straight sets by Schwartzman in the final. Can he beat the experienced pro this season?
Schwartzman v Cerundolo Prediction and Tip
Schwartzman will be a heavy favourite. Expect him to end Cerundolo’s run in Argentina for a second straight year.
