In the 1/8 finals of the tournament in Buenos Aires, a young local tennis player Sebastian Baez will fight with a more experienced Italian Lorenzo Sonego.
Baez loves to play on the ground and won three victories in the last four matches on this surface, both the strong Garin and the very talented Rune were beaten, and Sebastian Alejandro Tabilo, who almost won the tournament in Cordoba, lost. Baez has a great defense and a great forehand, and he is only 21 years old.
As for Sonego, this season he played only two matches on clay, in the first he defeated the Spaniard Carballes Baena with great difficulty, and in the second he lost to the experienced Spaniard Ramos in two sets. Last year, the Italian unsuccessfully finished the clay season, losing three matches in a row.
The only face-to-face meeting between the tennis players took place a month ago, Sonego was stronger in two sets, but the match took place on hard, which is very inconvenient for Baes. On the ground, everything will be completely different, Sebastian is gaining from match to match and with his stands has excellent chances not just to beat Sonya, but to do it confidently.
