ATP 250 In Quito To Move To Cordoba From 2019

ATP World Tour stop to relocate

The Ecuador Open, held in Quito since 2015, will move to Cordoba, Argentina in 2019, kicking off the Latin American swing in February. It will mark the second ATP World Tour 250 tournament held in Argentina, joining the Argentina Open in Buenos Aires.

The city of Cordoba, 435 miles northwest of Buenos Aires, has hosted a number of international sporting events, including FIFA World Cup football qualification matches. Octagon will stage the tournament in conjunction with Torneos, a leading sports marketing and media company.

“In partnership with Torneos, we look forward to establishing this event as a world-class 250 on the ATP calendar,” said Octagon SVP Jorge Salkeld. “With exquisite hotels and cuisine options for both visitors and players, Cordoba is the perfect city to expand the ATP’s presence in Argentina.”

Victor Estrella Burgos won the Ecuador Open in its first three editions (2015-17), while Roberto Carballes Baena defeated fellow Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 in the 2018 Quito final.
