Cuevas Set To Make Splash In Cordoba

ATP 250 event debuts this week in Argentina

Uruguay’s Pablo Cuevas will go for his seventh ATP Tour title this week at the inaugural Cordoba Open in Argentina. The 33-year-old Cuevas last won a title at the 2017 Brasil Open in Sao Paulo and all six of his trophies have come on clay.

Cuevas receives a first-round bye and will meet either Argentine wild card Carlos Berlocq or Tunisia’s Malek Jaziri, the sixth seed.

Italians lead the field at the tournament in central Argentina. The top two seeds, respectively, are Fabio Fognini, an eight-time ATP Tour titlist, and Marco Cecchinato, who reached the Roland Garros semi-finals last year.

Two other ATP Tour 250 events start on Monday as well: The Sofia Open, led by top seed Karen Khachanov of Russia, and the Open Sud de France in Montpellier, where defending champion Lucas Pouille looks to retain his title.
