Qualifier Pezzota Powers to Cordoba Open Title

Argentine qualifier Robertino Pezzota secured his third successive PSA World Tour title after easing to victory over Mexico’s Edgar Zayas in the final of the Tour de las Americas - PSA Cordoba Open, PSA M5 tournament.

The World No.451 prevailed in the opening stage of the Tour de las Americas, the Mar del Plata Open, a fortnight ago and continued his stunning return from a one-year hiatus with further success in Cordoba.

A succession of 3-0 triumphs, including a superb dismantling of top seed Leandro Romiglio in he quarter-final, saw Pezzota surge into the final, while Zayas’s semi-final opponent, compatriot Bryan Cueto, retired mid-way through the second game to ensure that Zayas progressed unopposed.

Pezzota, a silver-medallist in last year’s Pan American Games, was in fine fettle throughout the final, and a composed display saw him take Zayas down in three games to record a sixth PSA World Tour triumph.

The 33-year-old’s success in Cordoba means that he has now prevailed in both stages of the Tour de las Americas - and extended his unbeaten streak to 16 matches.

Pezzota Takes out Top Seed Romiglio in Cordoba Open

Argentine qualifier Robertino Pezzota remains on course to lift a third consecutive PSA World Tour title after downing top seed Leandro Romiglio to reach the semi-final of the Tour de las Americas – PSA Cordoba Open, PSA M5 tournament.

Pezzota made a stunning return from a year’s hiatus last week at the Mar del Plata Open – the first stage of the Tour de las Americas – and defeated Romiglio in the final to capture the fifth PSA World Tour title of his career.

Romiglio came into the match looking to avenge his defeat to his compatriot in Mar del Plata and was unlucky not to take a one-game lead after narrowly missing out on the tie-break. From there, Pezzota edged the second before surging to victory in the third for the loss of just three points, extending his lead on the head-to-head record between the pair to 3-1.

Colombia’s Dairo Sandoval will lie in wait for Pezzota in the semi-final after the number eight seed ended the title challenge of wildcard Hernan D’Arcangelo to reach the next stage.

Bryan Cueto, meanwhile, overcame second seed Andres Herrera with a 3-0 victory, and he will take on Edgar Zayas in an all-Mexican semi-final after the sixth seed saw off Brazil’s Diego Gobbi.
Romiglio Leads Argentine Trio Into Cordoba Open Quarters


Top seed Leandro Romiglio led two more of his fellow Argentine’s into the last eight of the Tour de las Americas – PSA Cordoba Open, PSA M5 tournament after beating Gonzalo Miranda to progress past the first round.

Romiglio, who missed out on the Mar del Plata Open title last week after a final defeat, went two games ahead before Miranda clawed a game back to set up a fourth. Romiglio rallied and stood firm though as he pulled away mid-game to wrap up the win and move through to the last eight.

He will aim to get revenge over Robertino Pezzota, who defeated Romiglio in the Mar Del Plata Open final, in the next round after Pezzota cruised to victory against Juan Gomez Dominguez.

Wildcard Hernan D’Arcangelo was the other home player to achieve a quarter-final berth, with a fine victory against Irish number four seed Stuart Hadden sending him into the next round. D’Arcangelo will face off with Colombia’s Dairo Sandoval next thanks to Sandoval’s victory against Santiago Orozco Parra.

Andres Herrera and Diego Gobbi, seeds two and three, respectively, are also through to the next stage after they rose to respective wins over Mohamed Saeed and Francisco Obregon.

World No.137 Herrera will go head-to-head with Mexico’s Bryan Cueto, who defeated Erick Herrera, while Gobbi is set to face Edgar Zayas after he saw off Rodrigo Pezzota.
Pezzota Brothers Power Through In Qualifying


Argentine brothers Robertino and Rodrigo Pezzota swept through to the main draw of the Tour de las Americas – PSA Cordoba Open after claiming respective wins over Juan Pablo Pramparo and Matias Valenzuela in the final qualifying round of the PSA M5 tournament.

Robertino claimed the title on the first stage of the Tour de las Americas last week at the Mar del Plata Open, and his fine form shows no sign of abating, with two straight games successes on the bounce in Cordoba.

The World No.451, who is a Pan American Games silver medallist, saw off Juan Barreyo in the previous round and followed that up with a comfortable win against Pramparo to set up a main draw meeting with Juan Gomez Dominguez.

Rodrigo, meanwhile, recovered from a game down to see off the attentions of local player Matias Valenzuela, and the Argentine will line up against Mexico’s Edgar Zayas for a place in the quarter-final.

There were also wins for Gonzalo Miranda, who defeated Juan Pablo Roude, and Francisco Obregon, with the latter overcoming his brother, Rodrigo, to secure his main draw berth.

Miranda has the distinction of playing the main draw’s top seed in the next round, while Obregon will take on Brazil’s Diego Gobbi.
Obregon Beats Top Seed Lomaglio In Qualifying


Local player Rodrigo Obregon came up with the biggest upset in the first qualifying round of the Tour de las Americas – PSA Cordoba Open, PSA M5 tournament after he defeated top qualifying seed Daniel Alejandro Lomaglio in straight games – ensuring he will face his brother, Francisco, in the next round.

Obregon dominated proceedings at the Espacio Decathlon and stormed to the win by an 11-3, 11-6, 11-4 margin of victory to set up a sibling showdown with Francisco after he saw off Claudio Guido Fontanzzi.

Third qualifying seed Robertino Pezzota won the first stage of the Tour de las Americas last week, despite beginning the tournament as a qualifier in the Mar del Plata Open, and he got his event here off to a fine start with a 3-0 win over Juan Barreyo.

Pezzota will contest his final qualifying round fixture with Juan Pablo Pramparo, who dispatched Matias Kupferberg in four games to reach the next stage.

Rodrigo Pezzota, the brother of Robertino, has also secured a final qualifying round berth after seeing off Guillermo Easdale in comfortable fashion, and he will line up against Matias Valenzuela for a place amongst the main draw action after Valenzuela defeated Francesco Marcantonio.

Juan Pablo Roude and Gonzalo Miranda make up the rest of the all-Argentine field and will play each other thanks to victories over Jeremias Azana and Ramiro Diaz Falco, respectively.
