Argentines Facundo Bagnis (79th) and Tomás Etcheverry (131st) made it to the quarterfinals at the Guayaquil Challenger. The man from Rosario beat the Peruvian Nicolás Álvarez (389º) by 6-2, 4-6 and 6-1, while the man from La Plata suffered to beat Álvarez Varona (403º) with partials of 6-4, 3-6 and 7-6 (4).
The Armstrong born, former 55 ATP, needed 2 hours and 15 minutes to leave his rival on the road, in what was a really worked match. For his part, the young man from La Plata suffered until the last moment but the tie-breaker he decided in his favor and sealed an important victory.
The Argentines will face each other in the next instance, so there will be at least one Argentine semifinalist. Another who saw action was Thiago Seyboth Wild (132nd), who had just eliminated Andrea Collarini in the first round.
The Brazilian, champion in the ATP 250 of Santiago 2020 (he beat Casper Ruud in the final), fought during the first set against the Colombian Alejandro González but then raised his level to dictate the victory by 7-6 (2) and 6- 0. In rooms wait for Nicolás Kicker or Daniel Dutra Da Silvto.
