ATP Buenos Aires Players 2019

Having arguably risen into the world’s top three players on clay behind Rafael Nadal and a resurgent Novak Djokovic, current top 10 star and defending champion Dominic Thiem goes in search of more success on the dirt at the Argentina Open in Buenos Aires.

A two-time champion in Buenos Aires after also conquering Nadal on his way to the title in 2016, Thiem has cemented himself as a destructive figure on clay over the last couple of seasons, and even earned a nickname of ‘the Prince of Clay’ - the heir apparent to Nadal on the surface. The Austrian enforcer will once again start as the strong favourite for the title after beating Aljaz Bedene in the final in 2018 and maintaining a spot inside the top 10 throughout the last two-and-a-half years - while he is also coming into 2019 on the back of making his first major final at the French Open.

While Thiem is undoubtedly the leading contender for the title, there is a whole host of other leading clay-courters who will give him a big challenge.

Leading the charge is home hope Diego Schwartzman, who will be aiming to become the first Argentine to win the title in Buenos Aires since David Nalbandian in 2008. Schwartzman, despite his diminutive nature, has established himself as a genuine top 20 player over the last couple of years, reaching two major quarter-finals - including on clay at the French Open, where he was the only man to take a set off eventual champion Nadal in 2018.

Fabio Fognini, the 2014 Argentina Open runner-up, also loves playing on clay and will certainly fancy himself of going all the way. Fognini put together a career-best season in 2018, capturing three titles and surging into the world’s top 15 - can the Italian keep rising in 2019?

And don’t forget about three-time champion David Ferrer, who is set to retire from tennis at his home Masters 1000 event in Madrid during the European summer. A champion three times on the trot from 2012-14, Ferrer will be determined to create more fond memories in his last ever appearance in Buenos Aires.

Stay tuned as more players are announced for the 2019 Argentina Open in the coming weeks!

About ATP Buenos Aires

The reorganised ATP World Tour calendar in 2016 saw the Buenos Aires event return to its old schedule as one of the early events of the spring run of clay-court events in South America known as the ‘Golden Swing’. In 2015, the Argentina Open trialled a new position as the last spring clay-court event – taking place directly after the 500 Rio Open - although it has since been re-scheduled to take place in the week leading up to the Rio Open, directly after the new ATP 250 tournament in Cordoba. ATP Sao Paulo is then played the following week before players turn their attention to the hard-court events of March in the USA, Indian Wells and Miami.

The Argentine capital of Buenos Aires – and the outdoor clay-courts of the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club, known as the ‘Cathedral of Argentine Tennis’ – have played host to some of the world’s best clay-court players since 1993 when the Argentina Open was first played, Carlos Costa defeating Alberto Berasategui in the final to become the first winner of the ATP Buenos Aires event.

Costa’s triumph inaugurated a tradition of Spanish success at the Argentina Open which continues up to the present day. Of the 14 different winners in Buenos Aires since 1993, seven have been Spanish and Spanish players have dominated the past eight years of the Argentina Open – Tommy Robredo (2009), Juan Carlos Ferrero (2010), Nicolas Almagro (2011), David Ferrer (2012-14) and Rafael Nadal (2015) between them have claimed the trophy for Spain every year since 2009 until Dominic Thiem broke the Spanish stranglehold with a win over Nicolas Almagro in the 2016 final. The 2017 final showdown was the first time a Spaniard had failed to reach the Argentina Open final since 2008, with Alexandr Dolgopolov downing top seed Kei Nishikori in straight sets to claim the title. Thiem returned to the winners circle in 2018, taking out Aljaz Bedene in straight sets to secure his second Argentina Open title.

Homegrown players have also been an important part of the Argentina Open, with Guillermo Coria (2004), Gaston Gaudio (2005), Juan Monaco (2007) and David Nalbandian (2008) all capturing the title to thrill the Buenos Aires – with Javier Frana (1994), Jose Acasuso (2001), Agustin Calleri (2002) and Juan Ignacio Chela (2011) also reaching finals in Buenos Aires.
