The field is headlined by World No. 13 and home favorite Diego Schwartzman along with 2020 US Open champion Dominic Thiem. The Austrian will be making a comeback following injury and fitness issues.

Here's all the information about the 2022 edition of the Cordoba Open.

What is the Cordoba Open

It is one of two ATP events played in Argentina, the inaugural edition of which was held in 2019. While it usually takes place in the first week of February, in 2021 it was conducted in the last week of the month due to the pandemic.

The tournament is an ATP 250 level event and is played on outdoor clay courts. Past champions include Juan Ignacio Londero, Cristian Garin and Juan Manuel Cerundolo.

Venue
