Federico Coria achieved the best victory of his career this Friday: he beat Cristian Garin (18th in the world, 2nd seed in the tournament) by 6-4, 4-6 and 6-2 at the Bastad Tournament (Sweden).
At age 29, Guillermo’s brother (former world No. 3 and Roland Garros finalist) reached the second ATP semi-final of his career after the one achieved in Córdoba. On that occasion he lost to Juan Manuel Cerúndolo, who would end up taking the title.
Now, Fede will go for his first ATP definition against German Hanfmann (107th in the world). He is the same age as Coria (29 years old) but they never met.
From Monday, the Argentine will achieve the best ranking of his career after exceeding 1000 ATP points for the first time. At the moment, it will be 70th: if he reached the final he would be 63rd and if he won 56th, beating for example Richard Gasquet or Nick Kyrgios.
