It took a few months and about four games for Juan Ignacio Londero to get his first ATP victory in the 2021 season. He resisted, but it was difficult for a fighter like the Cordovan to twist his arm.
It was in the initial duel of the Monte-Carlo Masters 1000 Qualy against Mischa Zverev 6-4 and 6-1 so the task is not yet fully accomplished. He must beat first-seeded Dominik Koepfer (defeated Bernabé Zapata Miralles 6-3 and 6-4) to achieve his goal of entering the main draw.
For Londero, current 94 of the world ranking, they were successive defeats at the Melbourne I premieres (against Mikhail Kukushkin), at the Australian open (against Alexandre Muller), at the Córdoba Open (vs. Albert Ramos) and at the Argentina Open (vs. Pablo Andújar).
On the other hand, it is the ninth entry to a Masters 1000 table that he disputes. In the previous eight, he only won three games but stayed at the gates of Monte-Carlo, Madrid and Shanghai 2019.
In addition, Federico Delbonis beat Roberto Marcora by the same instance: 6-2 and 7-5. He will play against Pedro Martínez.
