Biggest win of Garin's career and Top20 position, great feat.

Mager is a poor man's Fabio, but looks like a pornstar from nineties :)))))))))))

Unknowns ?

Garin has just won his 4th ATP title and is a Grand Slam junior champion, while Mager has been on a challenger tour since forever, usually with success.

Garin was in a bit of a sophomore slump so it's good to see him winning again.

Didn't see match but does anyone think either of these 2 unknowns remotely have a shot vs NadaI at RG?
If they could sustain their absolute best throughout the entire match they might make it competitive 3 setter loss

Garin path to a 500 title: defeats #94, #86, #116, #32, and #128.

New world #18.

Garin has qualified once for RG and made the second round so time to put that straight given he'll have a very decent ranking.

Can certainly get to second week with a fair wind.

I quite appreciate Garin, amazing stuff to hold quite a number of titles at once , first 500.

That said, Rio hasn't really been a true 500 field for a while now. Mager did a remarkable job considering his relative experience on the main tour.

This guy is gonna be 18 in the world? What a joke. Time for him to be shown what a true top 20 player looks like. This guy won’t do shit at any big tournament.

This is the easiest win for a 500 title I have ever known. He didn't have to face any top 20 player, the highest ranked player he beat being 26. I can hardly consider this a legit 500 title though he deserves it. It's not his fault that the field was so week and if he had beaten Thiem along the way, his victory would deserve more credit. Nonetheless, I'd like to congratulate him on his first titile of a 500 tourney and welcme to the top 20. It seems he's decent enough to do some damage on clay. His nationality being Chili makes it very sweat. He is the first Chilian playe I have got to know since Gonzalez. My all-time favorite Chilian is none other than Rios, though. I have no idea how good this guy is, but I hope he will make most of his improved ranking in the next few tournaments, where he may struggle with the change of the surface.
By the way, I really hope this tournamnet will be downgraded to 250 just like Menphis was a few years ago as long as it can't attract more than 5 top 20 players. The level of the tournament overall was just embarrassing, though I didn't get to see any match.
