Federico Coria reached the pick of his career last year and had some wins against respectable opponents on clay court. Just like any other Argentinian he plays the majority of his matches on this surface and is quite good at it. Bernabe Zapata Miralles is four years younger than Coria and is still fighting to find his place among the top 100 players on the tour but with the potential he shows, he will definitely achieve that this season.
Both players are seeing the tournament in Estoril as a chance to make a significant result at an ATP 250 and that will make this match a tough fight. A lot of long points will be played and Coria’s experience will prove as crucial. Zapata Miralles moves very well on the court but Coria is capable to hit the extra shot and that will lead him to victory on Monday.
