On fast pitches, the representative of Hungary speaks very little. In January 2020, Balazs won the hard challenger, which took place in Bangkok. At local competitions in Brazil, the Hungarian lost to Mageru in the qualifying round, but continued to perform as a “lucky loser”.
From the beginning of his professional career, Attila began to rapidly progress, to reach a new level, but soon he disappeared from the horizon and completely focused on ITF tournaments. Now Balash is trying to get close to making his debut in the top 100.
The tennis player got in good shape, he stands out with a variable powerful serve, trying to prevent opponents from attacking. Attila is not dependent on one specific style of play, it acts according to the situation (it can carry out long exchanges of blows on the back line, but with the same success it goes on the attack and regularly runs to the net).
Cuevas is 34 years old, he is on the 46th line in the Asia-Pacific Region and has 1017 rating points. Uruguayan tennis player spent the 2019 season very successfully. Then he won 2 ground challengers: in Aix-en-Provence and Tunisia.
During his career, Pablo took part in 656 soil battles, and in 430 of them he celebrated the victory. Last year, Cuevas at the local competition in Rio de Janeiro reached the semifinals.
For an age Cuevas, a rival like Balazs is not a problem, but over time, Pablo begins to sag. When the matches are delayed in three games, the Uruguayan may surrender physically if the opponent drives him on the court and develops speed. So far, Cuevas has consistently played in quarter-finals in unpaved tournaments and is struggling to cope with strong opponents.
