[TENNIS] Three Argentines will have the support of millions back home when the Thailand Open is broadcast across Latin America.
Jose Acasuso, Diego Hartfield and Carlos Berlocq will join the star-studded event, which will be beamed live across Latin America by Fox network. The sole ATP Tour event in the Kingdom is run from September 22-30 at the Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani.
Some 33 million households in 20 countries in South and Central America will be able to witness their players strut their stuff against stars such as Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Roddick.
Acasuso, currently ranked No 70 in the world, has won three ATP Tour events and has upset wins over top 10 players including Andy Roddick, Ivan Ljubicic and Tommy Robredo.
Hartfield, ranked 75th, and Berlocq, ranked 76th, are both more at home playing on clay but each has enjoyed some good results on hard courts.
