Córdoba (Argentina) – The Argentinian final at the Córdoba tennis tournament was won by Sebastián Báez, who won his second title after a 6:1, 3:6, 6:3 victory over Federico Coria career.
“Winning a tournament in Argentina is something that is very difficult to describe in words. All my friends and family were there, it was something extraordinary,” rejoiced the 22-year-old Báez, who played in his fourth final since last February and won the second. The 30-year-old Coria, the younger brother of former Roland Garros finalist Guillermo Coria, did not reach his first ATP Tour title even in his second final attempt.
“After the match point, I didn't even know how to celebrate. What I feel is from he got himself only when I was with my team. My coach Seba (Sébastian Gutiérrez) has supported me throughout my career, I am very grateful to him,” said Báez, who played all four finals on clay, after an emotional celebration with his closest friends. After his latest success, he moved eleven places in the ranking to the 36th position.
