Schwartzman fails to join colleagues

The semi-finals of the Cordoba Open in Argentina features three of their nationals and a Spaniard who prevented an Argentine clean sweep of the event by ousting the top seeded Diego Schwartzman in three sets.

I’m really happy because it was my first win against him after five losses, I think he’s a great player, and I did a great job to beat him today Albert Ramos Vinolas

Albert Ramos-Vinolas, the fifth seed defeated the world number nine and last year’s finalist 6-1 4-6 6-3 in what was his third three setter of the week.

“I’m really happy because it was my first win against him after five losses,” Ramos-Vinolas told ATPTour.com. following his two hour 27-minute match “I think he’s a great player, and I did a great job to beat him today.”

In their previous encounters the Spaniard had failed to win a set off the diminutive Argentine suffering his last loss to him 12-months ago at the same stage in Cordoba.

His next opponent is qualifier Facundo Bagnis who put out Josef Kovalik of Slovakia 6-1 6-2 and should he be successful he would meet another native with two Argentines set to face off against each other in the bottom half of the draw.

Both progressed after defeating seeded players with 19-year-old Juan Manuel Cerundolo, secured his third win on the ATP Tour with a 6-2 2-6 6-3 victory over the seventh seed from Brazil, Thiago Monteiro.

Ranked 335, Cerundolo came through qualifying to secure a place in his first ATP Tour level event and joins his brother Francisco on the tour. They pair are the first siblings to compete at the same tournament since 1981. Francisco though, playing on a wild-card, was beaten in the second round by Federico Coria.

“It’s amazing, I can’t believe it,” Cerundolo told ATPTour.com. “I just feel very happy and I want to enjoy this moment… The most important thing is the confidence [from] these matches. Since the qualies, I have a lot of confidence so I think that was the key. I need to stay healthy mentally too because these matches are very hard.”

Cerundolo is now the youngest Argentine to reach an ATP Tour semi-final since 18-year-old Juan Martin del Potro in Adelaide in 2007 and will face Coria for a place in the final.

There is also family history here as well as 28-year-old Coria is the younger brother of former world number three Guillermo Coria.

He defeated the second seed Benoit Paire of France 6-3 6-2 in just 72-minutes and hopes to pick up his first ATP Tour title come finals day.
