The Italian showed solid tennis at this tournament last season, without giving his rivals a single set in four matches. Marco went through the grid alternately Christian Garin, Roberto Carballes Baena and Guido Pella. After that, he unexpectedly figured it out very easily in the final with the Argentinean Diego Schwartzman (6: 1, 6: 2).
It is worth noting that the soil is a profile coating for Cecchinato. The Italian can boast in the sand of the semi-finals of the French Open 2018, where he won significant victories over Pablo Carreno Busta, David Goffen and Novak Djokovic. After which he put up worthy resistance to Dominic Tim, although he lost dry in the end (6: 7, 6: 7, 1: 6).
Marco holds the third dirt tournament in 2020. The Italian was in the final of Punta del Este, losing in the 3-set thriller to the Brazilian Thiago Monteiro (6: 7, 7: 6, 5: 7). Then he unsuccessfully played in Cordoba, capitulating in a starting meeting in front of the Argentinean Juan Londero (2: 6, 5: 7).
Roberto Carballes Baena
Roberto lost everything that is possible on hard this year and won his first victory on the clay only in Cordoba. Then, in the first round, Roberto beat Andrei Martin (6-3, 6-2). But after the second round, he had to sheathe a racket, as he could not cope with Delbonis (7-6, 2-6, 2-6).
With a grid in Buenos Aires, he was more fortunate. Taro Daniel and Lorenzo Sonego are mediocre tennis players. It is not surprising that their Spaniard easily beat in two sets.
With the transition to the clay, things should get the upper hand, although here again it is unlikely to cost some time to adapt. It is important for Carballes Baena to exceed the opponent in speed and not to make special mistakes when playing on the back line, because it will be much harder for him to effectively score points through winners.
