Laslo Djere (4) meets Facundo Bagnis in the quarter final of the 2021 Chile Open on Friday, March 12 2021.
Will Laslo Djere continue his quest to reach the Final here in Chile, or will Facundo Bagnis be able to get yet another strong victory under his belt to make his way to the semi finals here in Chile?
Laslo Djere came back from a set down in the second round against Pedro Sousa to win in 3 tight sets 5-7/7-5/6-3. It took Djere a bit of time to get his mojo going in this match, but once he did, he did not let go of his lead. Djere is a very skilled player, but he has not lived up to his potential on the ATP Tour. Now Djere will be looking to make his way to some later round matches in tournaments in 2021, but can he do this as he meets the very in form Facundo Bagnis?
Facundo Bagnis beat Frances Tiafoe in straight sets 7-6/7-6 on Wednesday, putting on a show and showing us his great skills on the tennis court. Facundo Bagnis has been playing some solid tennis recently in South America, and he will want to continue this momentum. Bagnis is very fast around the court, and he takes time away from his opponents, which on clay is a necessity. Bagnis will be feeling very confident coming into this match, but is he able to ride this momentum to take him to the semi finals here in Chile?
This is going to be the first meeting between both players, and unfortunately for Laslo Djere, I see this match going the favour of Facundo Bagnis. Begnis has been in much better form recently, and showed more skills in his second round match. Laslo Djere can definitely push Bagnis to his limits here, and put on a show for the Chilean fans, but I just do not see him making his way to the semi finals. This is going to be a tight 2 set victory in my opinion, with Facundo Bagnis winning and booking his spot in the semi finals here in Chile on Friday.
