The action kicks off for the Argentines in Indian Wells on the first day of the men’s main draw, which will feature two Argentines: Guido Pella (77th) and Renzo Olivo (199th).
After finishing the duel between the Spanish Carlos Taberner and Jaume Munar, Lump will jump to the court against the South Korean Soonwoo Kwon (56th), with whom he has a balance in favor of two victories in two games played.
Although the forecast is favorable for the Bahiense, it must be taken into account that his performances in this contest were not the best: In 2016 he achieved his best result reaching the third round where he fell to David Goffin in three sets.
On the other hand, coming from the qualy, Olive will dispute his fourth main draw of Masters 1000 where he will have a tough challenge with the Spanish Roberto Carballes Baena (81º). Being the first duel between them, the one born in Rosario will seek to break his best mark in a tournament of this category: He achieved the first round in Monte Carlo 2017 and Indian Wells 2017 and 2016.
In addition, in the Latin American order, Thiago Monteiro will go vs. Tennys Sandgren.
The tournament, which did not have its edition in March 2020 due to the pandemic, can be seen in its entirety on STAR +.
