The Line: -- Over/Under:
Argentine tennis player, Federico Delbonis, has made it into the quarterfinals of the ATP Cordoba Open. Federico Delbonis will know take on promising Spanish talent, Jaume Munar.
Federico Delbonis won his previous round match in 3 sets as he beat Roberto Carballes Baena. It was a tough match for Delbonis as he lost the opening set but fought back well to get the eventual victory. During the win, Federico Delbonis returned serve exceptionally strongly as he won 42% of the points played during his opponents serve. Federico Delbonis won 5 break points which resulted in him winning the overall match. Federico Delbonis has received huge support in this tournament from his home crowd and that is expected to continue in this match. The conditions of this tournament are familiar to Federico Delbonis and that is giving him a huge boost.
On the other side of the coin, Jaume Munar enters this match having won his previous match against the number 2 seed, Marco Cecchinato. It was a comfortable win for Munar as he won the first and third sets to secure the overall victory. Jaume Munar won 92% of his service games while breaking his opponent’s serve on 3 occasions. This is expected to be another tough match for Munar as he will have the crowd against him.
This will be the first time that Jaume Munar and Federico Delbonis are to play each other at an ATP event.
Jaume Munar has been a very exciting player over the past 12 months but I see him losing this match. Federico Delbonis has much more experience on the ATP stage and that is very important at this stage of a tournament. Furthermore, Federico Delbonis is playing at home which means he will have the boost from the crowd. With all that taken into consideration, I see Federico Delbonis winning this match.
