Džumhur, who was set as the first holder of the tournament in the capital of Peru, should go out onto the central court against the Chilean tennis player (171st on the ATP list) tonight around 7:30 p.m., after the matches Dutra Silva – Belotti (starting from 4:30 p.m.) and Saez – Pella finish.
The best tennis player, who is on the 80th position on the latest ATP list, has a chance to come close to TOP 70 by winning the tournament, if several results of other tennis players turn out in his favor.
Džumhur needs an early elimination of five tennis players: Dušan Lajović and Ernests Gulbis in Basel, Marcel Granollers and Nicolas Almagro in Valencia, and Paolo Lorenzi in Monterey.
The best placement that Džumhur might achieve on the newest ATP list is 67th position if, in addition to winning in Lima and early elimination of the five aforementioned players, Denis Cudla fails in Basel.
