Horacio Zeballos and Adrian Ungur will meet on Monday in the opening round of the ATP Vina Del Mar Open. This promises to be one of the most exciting clashes of the first round, with both players being capable of making a lengthy run here. Zeballos will perhaps be the favourite, given his aptitude on the red dirt, and his familiarity with the South American climate.
Ungur, of Romania, poses a notable threat. 2011 was a fairly successful year for him, and he’s nearly completed his gradual climb towards the top hundred. At the age of 27, Ungur appears to have peaked later than a lot of players. The recent improvements to his game are beneficial to not just his chances, but the chances of the Romanian Davis Cup team this season.
Zeballos, a lefty, possesses a good deal of trickery, and he should just about clinch victory here. Ungur will run him close at the very least though. He’s got a deft touch, and he’s particularly good at putting points away when he rushes the net. If he can make this count and pull of a minor upset, he’ll be another step closer to a career-high ranking.
