Cerundolo vs Cerundolo!
Quarterfinal of a clay challenger 80 held in Campinas, Brazil.

Juan Manuel (20 years old, ATP #89, left-handed) is facing his older brother Francisco (23 years old ATP #112, right-handed) for the second time.

Fransisco won the first meeting of this fascinating rivalry, 6-2 6-3. It was in 2017, in the 2nd round of the qualifying draw of an ITF/Future 3 held in Villa Maria, Argentina.

Francisco is the defending champion in Campinas. He defeated Roberto Carballès Baena in final last year, 6-4 3-6 6-3.

Juan Manuel won his first ATP 250 this year in Cordoba, beating Albert Ramos-Vinolas in final, 6-0 2-6 6-2
1 week later, his brother Francisco reached his first ATP 250 final, beating Albert Ramos-Vinolas in semi-final, 7-6 3-6 6-2. He lost the final against Diego Schwartzman.

Juan Manuel is seed #3 in Campinas. He beat Pucinelli De Almeida, 4-6 7-5 6-1 in R1; and Gustavo Heide, 6-1 3-6 6-3 in R2.
Fransisco is seed #8. He beat Gilbert Klier Jr., 6-3 6-0 in R1; and Meligeni Rodrigues Alves, 6-2 6-3 in R2.

Which brother is gonna win the match of the day according to you? This match could be the big turning point of the history of tennis.The suspense is killing me! I am on the edge of my seat. ✌


Apart from the blasphemy about "match of the day" (Obviously that's Djokovic-Zverev, like the last 2 encounters), I think Juan wins. He had a 100% ATP win record and was 1-0 in finals back in March. Would be a shame to be eclipsed by his brother so early.
