Synergy for Nalbandian and Londero

Argentine players don’t win ATP tournaments in Argentina every day – never mind in their hometown.

In fact, the last time it happened was when former world No. 3 David Nalbandian won the Argentina Open in Buenos Aires in 2008.

But 25-year-old Juan Ignacio Londero did it Sunday in Córdoba. 

In an awesome full circle, Nalbandian and Londero have history together, posing for this pic long before either held up those hometown trophies.

The last player to win his first career ATP Tour match – and win that same tournament – was Steve Darcis in Amersfoort in 2007.

Londero did it last week.
