Teenager upsets his compatriots

Teenager Juan Manuel Cerundolo, who had not played a tour-level match prior to this week, has now reached the quarterfinals of the Cordoba Open in his native Argentina.

I feel incredibly happy. I don't know how to describe it. It's crazy, it's kind of amazing Juan Manuel Cerundolo

The 19-year-old, who started the week ranked No. 335 in the world, rallied Thursday for a 6-7(3) 7-5 6-2 victory against the third seed Miomir Kecmanovic of Serbia who is now being coached by former Argentina No1 David Nalbandian.

Cerundolo battled for two hours and 19-minutes to reach the last eight at this ATP 250 breaking the Serbian’s serve six times to earn the biggest win of his career.

“I feel incredibly happy. I don’t know how to describe it. It’s crazy, it’s kind of amazing,” Cerundolo told “I’m feeling the moment and I’ll rest now because I have to play tomorrow. I’m very happy, but I’m also focussed on the next match.”

The youngster credits his success to the confidence he gained during qualifying, but also to a change in rackets he made one month ago.

“It’s helped me to be more powerful,” Cerundolo, the youngest player from Argentina to win an ATP Tour level match, said. “I have to use less strength to hit the ball. It’s a better thing for me.”

Cerundolo will face Brazil’s Thiago Monteiro in the quarterfinals following the seventh-seeded 86-minute, 6-3 6-4 victory over Spain’s Roberto Carballes Baena.

Also safely through to the last eight s the top seeded Argentine, the diminutive Diego Schwartzman, who progressed comfortably 6-2 6-2 against Italian Marco Cecchinato
