Day 2 at the ATP tournament in Buenos Aires could be a historic day for tennis, for sad reasons. It could very well be the last match of one of the most universally beloved champions: Juan Martin del Potro. The Tower of Tandil recently announced that he’s returning this tournament but that the pain is too much and this will most likely be his farewell. There are some other interesting matches this Tuesday, but this one will clearly dominate the headlines.

ATP Buenos Aires Day 2 Predictions

Roberto Carballes Baena vs Nicolas Jarry

Head-to-head: Carballes Baena 3-3 Jarry

The two players have split their six previous meetings, which shows just how tight this matchup is. It could genuinely go either way, but Jarry has been in better form recently and has had more match practice on clay, which is enough to give him the smallest of edges.

Jaume Munar vs Tomas Martin Etcheverry

Head-to-head: first meeting
Etcheverry has done some nice inroads into the ATP tour lately, but Munar is still the better and more experienced player of the two and should be able to prevail here, in a match that should feature a lot of long, grueling, and intense rallies.

Juan Ignacio Londero vs Pablo Andujar

Head-to-head: Andujar 1-1 Londero

These two players have split their two previous meetings, but Andujar’s victory happened precisely at this tournament last year, in a match where he only lost three games. The Spaniard will be the favorite here as well, despite Londero’s great run to the semifinals last week in Cordoba. Andujar has had a good start to the season as well, winning two matches at the Australian Open, and he’s always a tough nut to crack in these smaller clay events.

Juan Martin del Potro vs Federico Delbonis

Head-to-head: del Potro 1-0 Delbonis

Del Potro hasn’t played a single match since June 2019. It’s been two and a half years and sadly his return match might well be the last match of his career. Delbonis hasn’t won a single ATP main draw match since July of last year, but he’ll still likely have too much for a broken down del Potro. Like he did all his career though, del Potro will surely put up a heroic effort and feed off the crowd’s energy to make it a memorable match. Whatever happens, there’s no question this will be the biggest match of the day, not only in Buenos Aires but anywhere.

Prediction: Delbonis in 3
