Munar spends most of his playing time on unpaved surfaces: 193 victories / 98 defeats (66% of wins). This season, the Spaniard managed to play 2 matches on the ground – he beat Leonardo Mayer and lost to Diego Schwartzman. At the current tournament in Argentina, Jaume reached the quarter-finals in 2019.
In 2019, Munar reached the quarter finals of this tournament, beating Fabio Fognini and Federico Delbonis. Guido Pella stopped him then, but did it in three sets. In the world ranking, the Spaniard still takes 87th place. To stay in the first hundred of the rating, he needs to repeat his last year result.
Last week, Jaume competed in Cordoba. There he went one round, beating Leo Mayer (6-4, 6-3). But in the second, he could not do anything with Diego Schwartzman (1-6, 5-7).
Last year, the Brazilian spent amazingly. In 2019, Thiago won three clay challengers (in Punta del Este, Braunschweig and Lima). In early February 2020, Monteiro defended his title in Punta del Este. At the moment, the 25-year-old Brazilian tennis player is 92nd in the ATP. At the tournament in Buenos Aires, Monteiro achieved the best result in 2017 – he reached the quarterfinal stage.
Monteiro did not play in the main draw of Buenos Aires last year. Then the Brazilian could not overcome the qualification, losing Facundo Bagnis. Now Tiago does not need to protect anything, so the tournament task will not put pressure on him.
It is worth noting that two weeks ago Monteiro won the challenge in Punta del Este. The representative of Brazil then demonstrated an excellent game, and even defeated Marco Ceccinato in the final (7-6, 6-7, 7-5). After this, Tiago visited Cordoba, but in the Perm match lost to Corentin Moutet (4-6, 3-6).

Tennis fans expect a lot from Munar. However, while the young Spaniard cannot reach the level of the game that was predicted to him a couple of years ago. On the other hand, Jaume entrenched in the TOP 100, and this is an important fact. He is only 22 years old, which means that the largest trophies are ahead. But he can’t get out of the first hundred of the best tennis players. Therefore, the Spaniard will definitely defend points in Buenos Aires. Monteiro prefers to give all his best to tournaments of the Challenger level.
It seems Munar is ready to play on the ground. He always acted well on this surface, but recently he was in crisis. His last match against Schwartzman indicates that the Spaniard is starting to leave him. We believe that in the match with Monteiro Jaume will win. The Brazilian too easily gave the last game to Mute. It makes us doubt him.
Our forecast is the victory of Jaume Munar
