Last season for Pablo began unsuccessfully. After the defeat at the Australian Open in 1/64 from Denis Shapovalov (2-6 3-6 6-7), an unsuccessful performance at the Argentinean ATP series clay tournament in Cordoba followed. In March, Pablo’s business went uphill during the Chilean Challenger in Santiago, where Andujar begins to gain his optimal shape and, as a result, the semi-finals of the tournament, where he lost to young tennis player from Taiwan Wu Tang Lee (2-6 3-6), but the next performance in the tournament of the series “Masters” on the hard cover in Miami ended for Pablo in the 1/32 finals in a duel against the Belgian tennis player David Goffen (4-6 1-6).
During current Rio Open Pablo succesfully played against Fernando Verdasco in the First Round making his way to meet another Spanish player on a tournament.
Pedro Martinez Portero
Martinez Portero does not want to face the reputation of a “Challenger player”, therefore he is increasingly shown in ATP tournaments. But this only happens on the ground, as the Spaniard often ignores hard or grass. And if he comes, then everything ends quickly enough. Due to the low position in the ranking, Pedro is forced to start his career with qualifications. At the moment, the tennis player is in the top 200, but if he wants to swing at something more, then he needs to show himself at such tournaments, where he will play against Andujar.
Martinez performs very little on other surfaces. He really loves the clay, thus he has five times more victories on it than, for example, on hard. That should be his main advantage against much more experienced opponent.
