The locals want to make it clear what the location is for and with four appearances in the quarterfinals the sentence “that the cup stays at home” is close to being fulfilled.
Diego Schwartzman and Juan Manuel Cerúndolo joined Federico Coria and Facundo Bagnis, to complete the Argentine legion in a quarterfinal of the ATP 250 in Córdoba that has other contenders not to forget.
The first seed will go to Albert Ramos, who had to spend two hours and 48 minutes to beat 21-year-old rookie Tomás Etcheverry. The great surprise of the tournament, Juan Manuel Cerúndolo, will go hand in hand with the always fighting Thiago Monteiro.
Meanwhile, in the highlight of the day, Federico Coria will collide with the Frenchman Benoit Paire, while the Argentinean Facundo Bagnis will cross with the Slovakian Jozef Kovalik.
The tournament is played on brick dust and will provide 250 points for the winner, 150 for the finalist, 90 for the semi-finalists, 45 for the quarter-finalists, and 20 for those already eliminated in the second round.
