Bad news for Pablo Cuevas on a tour of the year in which he feels comfortable and “at home”. The 72nd in the world had to leave the Córdoba tournament due to a stress fracture in the fifth metatarsal (little toe).
In his place will enter the Slovak Jozef Kovalík, 124th in the ranking, who releases a qualifying quota in the tournament that begins next week. In this way, Facundo Díaz Acosta enters the preliminary phase directly by releasing a Wild Card.
In addition, the Uruguayan will not be available for Buenos Aires, Acapulco and almost certainly Miami. I would return only in April.
