Good day for Argentines as trio advance to Cordoba Open semi-finals
There will be at least one Argentine in the Cordoba Open final after Guido Pella, Federico Delbonis and Juan Ignacio Londero reached the semi-finals.
In a gripping all-Argentine semi-final, eighth seed Pella got the better of the third-seeded Diego Schwartzman as he came out on top with a 7-5, 6-2 victory.
After a tight opening set, Pella broke in the first game of the second set and again in game seven before serving it out.
“We have a similar style of play. We are solid from the back of the court and it was difficult to keep the rhythm up,” Pella said.
“But it was a good match and Diego demands that you stay concentrated at all times… I played a very good match and that was what made me win.”
He will take on either Slovenian Aljaz Bedene or Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas for a place in the final as the duo have to return on Saturday after their match was suspended due to rain and wind.
Delbonis secured his place in the last four with a 7-5, 6-4 victory over Jaume Munar from Spain while wildcard Londero reached his maiden ATP Tour semi-final with a 6-4, 7-6 (7-3) defeat of qualifier Pedro Cachin.
