The guy came out of nowhere in 2018, never having won an ATP match in his career until M-C. He then got into MD at ATP250 Budapest as a lucky loser (thank you Djere Laslo!) and won the whole tournament. 45 days later he was in the RG SFs.

Is there a surprise deep runner this year? Who and why?

Disgust or discuss

Pablo Cuevas - perhaps known a little better but he has been under the radar this year and coming into form now. I'm giving him a quarter-final chance
 

D-Lite

Semi-Pro
A toss up between Berrettini and Garin for me, although I think it's going to be massively draw dependent and as we saw in Monte Carlo, even someone of Lajovic's calibre could have a hot streak in them. I'd love this to be Basilashvili, so I'll cross my fingers for him!

Berrettini! Has to be italian! HAS to be! :sneaky: Either him or Fognini (though with his most recent results, not sure he falls into "dark horse" category anymore...)

I don't think that is quite accurate.

EDIT: Yeah, just checked - he made the QFs at Bucharest in 2016. That's about it though.
It is a HC stat I mistook for overall lack of wins. Thanks. Surprising that he got direct entry to Bucharest...TE shows no qualies required to play it. Romanians being WC generous to a Sicilian?
