3rd time this event in played in Quito, 3rd year in a row these two guys face off.
2015 SF Estrella def. Bellucci 7-6(5) 7-5
2016 F Estrella def. Bellucci 4-6 7-6(5) 6-2
Last year Bellucci actually was very close from the victory. He should've won even before the TB tbh, but Estrella just refused to lose. Despite having huge trouble returning anything, he found a way to win the set in a TB, then Thomaz imploded in the 3rd set.
They also met another time in 2013, also in altitude clay (Bogota CH), and Estrella also won, 6-2 3-0 ret.
Will Bellucci win this time? Or Estrella's winning streak in Quito will continue?
I'd day another Estrella's win in 3 sets is the most likely outcome.
