Nalbandian Heads Weak Field at ATP Buenos Aires


Posted on February 17, 2008

Argentine David Nalbandian is the lone Top 10 player this week at the Copa Telmex in Buenos Aires, where No. 2 seed Juan Monaco of Argentina is the defending champion.

Also seeded are former No. 1 Carlos Moya, Juan Ignacio Chela, last week's Brasil Open champ Nicolas Almagro, Igor Andreev, Potito Starace, and Filippo Volandri.

Wildcards for the event went to Argentines Mariano Zabaleta, Eduardo Schwank, and Maximo Gonzalez.

Moya faces a tough opener against homecountry favorite Jose Acasuso. Monaco will face fellow Argentine Agustin Calleri in his opener.

In last year's final Monaco lost only three games to surprise finalist Alessio di Mauro of Italy.
