After an electrifying fortnight at the Australian Open, top players in men's tennis will now compete at the 2024 Cordoba Open.

World No. 22 Francisco Cerundolo and Word No. 25 Sebastian Baez will be the top two seeds at the event followed by Tomas Martin Etcheverry and Austrian talent Sebastian Ofner. Former World No. 8 Diego Schwartzman has also secured a place in the main draw after receiving a wildcard.

Schwartzman, the local favorite, has struggled to make a significant impact in the last couple of years. He had a disappointing campaign at the Australian Open, failing to get past the first round in the pre-tournament qualifiers. The 31-year-old will be eager to set things straight in Cordoba and make a deep run.

On the other hand, Sebastian Baez had a promising season last year, amassing title-winning runs at the Winston-Salem Open, Austrian Open and the Cordoba Open. He looked in fine form at the Australian Open, but couldn’t hurdle past eventual champion Jannik Sinner in the third round. The 23-year-old will be hoping to begin his title-defense in Cordoba on a confident note.
