Gone was the elimination of Cabal and Farah in the knockout stages of the US Open. The Colombian duo is already thinking about the start of the clay tour. However, the start for the world number 1 will not be easy as they will have to face the couple made up of Pablo Carreño Busta and Alex de Miñaur, recent champions of the Cincinnati Masters 1000.
Based on the programming provided by the organizers of the contest, the coffee duo will make its premiere in the last shift of field N ° 4. The programming in Rome will begin at 3:00 am Colombian time, so it is estimated that Cabal and Farah will play at approximately 9:00 am.
It is not a secret that Colombians have not had a good restart of the season after the stoppage due to the covid-19 pandemic, but historically the best performance of Cabal and Farah has been on clay. At the same time, their motivation will be to defend the 2018 and 2019 titles in the Masters 1000 of the Italian forum.
The last defeat of the Colombians at the Masters 1000 in Rome dates back to 2016 when they lost in the first round to Cuevas / Granollers.
