Argentine claimed first ATP Tour title in Cordoba
Following Felix Auger-Aliassime‘s withdrawal from the Intesa Sanpaolo Next Gen ATP Finals, Juan Manuel Cerundolo has qualified for the 21-and-under season finale. The Argentine is the first South American to earn a spot in the event in tournament history (since 2017).
Cerundolo has enjoyed a breakthrough 2021 season, including a run to his first tour-level title as a qualifier at the Cordoba Open (d. Ramos-Vinolas) in February. In winning eight straight matches at the ATP 250, the lefty became the first player to lift a trophy on his ATP Tour debut since 2004.
