Juan Ignacio Londero vs Giannessi (By: Iniestaone)
Qualifying semifinal for ATP Rio between Londero (#69) and Giannessi (#170)
Londero is playing career high tennis right now after he took his first ATP title in Cordoba a week ago, he went to play Buenos Aires after that and lost immediately to Sousa which was expected because he was so tired playing five matches in Cordoba. Now he's had time to prepare for Rio these last four days.
Giannessi lost in the second round in Buenos Aires having to retire vs Sonego, I didn't watch that match nor can I find any info on why he did so but having to retire is of course never a good sign.
I think Giannessi has produced some good results this year, he's doing a lot better than I expected him to but I can't see him get anything out of this match. Londero is playing with sky high confidence, he's coming to Rio being 8/3 this year and another thing that will benefit him is that the courts are slow (albeit faster than Argentina) and he is a much better baseline player than Giannessi. I think he will dominate this match and win it very comfortably. They have one head to head match which was a year ago in Quito where Giannessi won 6-4 6-4 but that surface and altitude was something else completely and Giannessi was the 1.44 favorite, which is reversed today
