This was the path of Sebastián Báez in the Next Gen Finals

Impressive week of Sebastián Báez in Milan. The Argentine, who came as sixth favorite to the tournament and was one of the eight participants outside the Top 100, along with Holger Rune and Hugo Gastón.

The path of the native of San Martín began in the group stage against Lorenzo Musetti. There, despite the fact that the Italian was a favorite, Báez ended up beating him in four sets by 4-1, 4-1, 3-4 (5) and 4-3 (5).

With that victory, the Albiceleste came with much more respite to the next two games, knowing that with one more victory, he would secure his place in the semifinals. His second game was against Sebastian Korda, second favorite. There the American did not give rise to surprise and won 4-3 (3), 4-2 and 4-2.

To close the group, Báez had to win if he wanted to be among the top four in the tournament and make history. And so he did in front of Hugo Gastón. The Frenchman could do little against the fantastic level shown by the Argentine, who took the match 4-3 (2), 4-2 and 4-2.

Already installed in the semis, being the first South American to access this instance in this tournament, the Argentine had to face the young sensation of the moment: Carlos Alcaraz. In this match, despite Báez’s good level, the Spaniard never gave him a chance to even snatch a set from him. With sleeves of 4-2, 4-1 and 4-2, the native of Murcia dispatched the Argentine and reached the final.

Beyond having lost, Seba Báez’s path in the Next Gen Finals was undoubtedly impressive and will help him grow and continue his training for the near future, with a clear next objective: get fully into the Top 100.
