Guido Pella and Juan Ignacio Londero They are two of the best Argentine tennis players in recent years. But since the circuit restart in August 2020, they were unable to maintain the level previously demonstrated.
Pella (30 years old, current 50th in the world) had external factors that have limited him: due to close contact with his PF (a false positive) he missed Cincinnati and arrived with little training at the US Open 2020. Then he integrated one of the planes with infected with coronavirus who arrived in Australia and was locked in his room until two days before the ATP Cup; in Córdoba, he himself tested positive for coronavirus.
The numbers of the Bahianse, who used to be 20th in the world, are 1-5 in 2021 (he only beat Nishioka in the ATP Cup) and 2-4 in the second half of 2020.
Londero (27 years old, currently 97th in the world) also had to be locked up in Australia for sharing a plane with someone infected with Covid-19. El Topo changed coach twice in this time: from Scheniter (with whom he won the Córdoba 2019 ATP) he went to Sebastián Prieto and from Prieto to Leonardo Olguín.
El Topo, who used to be 50th in the world, is 0-7 (in MD) this year and has not won a match since Roland Garros 2020, against Federico Delbonis. In the second half of 2020, he has a 2-3 record in main frames: in addition to his compatriot, the Cordovan surpassed Evgeny Donskoy in the first round of the US Open.
