After confirming the presence of Diego Schwartzman and Dominic Thiem as top favorites for the main draw of the Córdoba Open 2022, the names who will play the classification of the ATP 250 contest to be played at the Kempes Sports Center were announced.
Among the outstanding tennis players who will compete in the preliminary phase, the Argentine promise Sebastián Báez stands out, brand new top 100 and member of the Next Gen Finals last year. The 21-year-old from Buenos Aires won six Challengers in 2021, including the Dove Men Care Challenger in Buenos Aires.
Another favorite is the Italian Marco Cecchinato, former top 20 in the world and a specialist in brick dust: he was a semifinalist at Roland Garros 2018 and winner of the Argentina Open in 2019. It is also worth noting the presence of Francisco Cerúndolo, finalist from the past Argentina Open.
The Córdoba Open 2022 ranking features other top-level foreign representatives, who combine strong performance today with significant future aspirations. This is supported by names such as the Danish Holger Rune (102 °), the Spanish Calor Taberner (108 °), the Bolivian Hugo Dellien (113 °), the Slovak Andrej Martin (116 °, semifinalist of the contest in 2020), the Colombian Daniel Elahí Galán (119 °), the Japanese Taro Daniel (120 °), the German Yannick Hanfmann (126 °) and the Peruvian Juan Pablo Varillas (128).
The Córdoba Open will be held from January 29 to February 6 at Polo Deportivo Kempes and will kick off the South American tour on brick dust. It will have full public capacity and the seats are for sale through Ticketek.
