Thiago Seyboth Wild

Thiago Seibot ranks 182nd in the ATP world ranking. Thiago was quite unexpectedly able to reach the final, having beaten both Londero (7-6, 6-4) and Garin (7-6), two strong tennis players on the clay. At the moment the Brazilian shows excellent tennis and this is his first final of the ATP tournaments. Before that he only played in the finals on the Challengers and I think Thiago may not have enough experience in the upcoming match. He’s still very young and hasn’t played at all on a high level.

Casper Ruud

Casper Ruud is ranked 38th in the world ranking. Kasper walked the net very confidently, outplaying all his opponents 2-0. Now Ruud is in great shape, recently won a tournament in Argentina, has now reached the final again and the Norwegian has a great chance to win another title, he is more experienced than his rival, he lost only one game on the ground in 2020 out of nine.

On the way to the final in the tournament in Chile the Norwegian got victories against the local Alejandro Tabilo (6-4, 7-5), Federico Delbonis (7-5, 7-5), Albert Ramos-Vinolas (7-6, 6-2)
