HEAD-TO-HEAD

ROGER FEDERER

  • Roger Federer returns to the court almost exactly one month after losing in the final at Wimbledon to Novak Djokovic to prepare for the incoming US Open.
  • The world number three has taken the Cincinnati Masters title seven times previously, winning most recently in 2015 against the current champion Djokovic, to whom he lost in last year’s final.
  • Federer has won three titles in 2019, two hard-court tournaments in Miami and Dubai and one on grass in Halle, and the now 38-year-old will be desperately seeking the US Open.

JUAN IGNACIO LONDERO

  • Argentina’s Juan Ignacio Londero came through his first-round match with Matteo Berrettini in straight-sets to set up a first career meeting with Roger Federer.
  • Londero won the Cordoba Open in Colombia earlier this year and recently came close to another clay-court title in Sweden where he lost to fellow South American Nicolas Jarry.
  • The 25-year-old is no doubt in his breakthrough year on the ATP tour and moved up to 55th in the world rankings at the turn of the week after his performance in Sweden and a second-round exit in Los Cabos, Mexico.

THE PREDICTION

Argentine Juan Ignacio Londero is having his best season on the tour at 25 years old alongside some other South American breakthrough stars like Guido Pella, but he is relatively unproven on a hard court and quite narrowly favours the clay. Roger Federer might be a little rusty after a month off court, and there’s every chance Londero could push him, like Lloyd Harris did in the first round at SW19, but the Swiss should win here comfortably in two.
