Argentine Federico Delbonis to Face Veselý

09.06.2017 17:55:30 | He is twenty six years old and ranked 33rd in ATP rankings last year. He has won two ATP tournaments: in Marrakesh and in Sao Paulo. He appeared in the 4th round of the tournament in Miami in which he lost to Kei Nishikori. Delbonis will face Jiří Veselý in the UniCredit Czech Open final. Who did he have to beat in the semi-final? Markus Ericsson is twenty seven years old, plays primarily at Futures tournaments, has made a hundred thousand USD in his career, and currently ranks 413th in ATP rankings.

However, he succeeded in the qualification in Prostějov, knocked off experienced Melzer in the first round and, then, the top seeded Martin Kližan of Slovakia!
What does Federico Delbonis think about the semis? “Ericsson was surely a worthy opponent. It was a tough match in which he had nothing to lose. He’s had a wonderful week here. He advanced from the qualification and made his way through to the semi-finals! I’m really glad I won today and, hopefully, I’ll repeat it tomorrow.“

What does Delbonis expect from tomorrow’s match against Veselý? “It’s going to be very hard. Veselý is an excellent top player. Let alone that he is Czech and the crowd will certainly support him. However, I’ll have to be focused and play my game style. Then we’ll see.“
