The 2019 of Argentine tennis

Argentine tennis: the validity of Schwartzman, the jump of Pella and Lóndero, and Zeballos “top” in doubles. “El Topito”, without a doubt, was the best Cordoba.


The validity of Diego Schwartzman among the top 20 in the world. The quality jump played by Guido Pella and Juan Ignacio Lóndero. Horacio Zeballos access to the “top ten” in doubles. All that was what left the season for Argentine tennis . In a year with three titles and a favorable balance.
