Last call of the year so that Latin American tennis can take the big blow and add great matches in the final stretch of the year. With Diego Schwartzman at the helm, a handful of South American players will say present in the Big Apple.
Number 14 in the world ranking after reaching the round of 16 at the Canadian Masters (loss to Roberto Bautista Agut) and the round of 16 at the Cincinnati Masters (loss to Casper Ruud). He will make his debut against Ricardas Berankis and then fearsome punches could appear in his way: Kevin Anderson and John Isner.
In addition, the rest of the Argentines did not have the best of luck. Federico Delbonis will meet Denis Shapovalov, Federico Coria will do the same against Gael Monfils, Facundo Bagnis will face Taro Daniel while Guido Pella will make his debut against Filip Krajinovic.
Meanwhile, Chilean Cristian Garin and Brazilian Thiago Monteiro will face Norbert Gombos and Dan Evans, respectively. For his part, the Uruguayan Cuevas will make his presentation to Ernesto Escobedo.
In the female branch, Nadia Podoroska will make her debut against Jelena Ostapenko and Camila Osorio, from Colombia, will play with Ivana Jorovic.
It should be noted that the South American presence may increase due to the fact that several representatives continue to fight for a place since qualifying.
