Pablo Carreno Busta 2020 tournament schedule
Spanish star Pablo Carreno Busta won the Chengdu title in 2019 despite missing 10 weeks of the season because of a right shoulder injury. Can the Spanish grinder make 2020 his best ever?
Pablo Carreno Busta started his 2019 season at the Auckland Open facing David Ferrer and secured a victory with his opponent retiring two games into the match. Carreno Busta then advanced to the quarter finals, but was defeated by German Player Jan-Lennard Struff in a gruelling three-set match 6-7(5), 7-6(6), 6-7(7).
The player won his first ATP title of 2019 in Chengdu, it was his first championship win since 2017, despite the shoulder injury he struggled with at the start of the year. He faced Alexander Bublik in the final and defeated him after a two hour match. However, this was his only title win of the season and he only made it as far as the semi finals in 2 other tournaments. He was unable to defend his title at the Millennium Estoril Open as he was defeated by Jeremy Chardy in the round of 32.
Carreno Busta began his 2019 season at No.24 on the ATP Tour rankings, but dropped to No.69 in August 2019. The player did not stay in this position though and instead climbed back up the rankings and settled at No.27 by the end of the season. Can he bring himself up even higher in the rankings for the 2020 season?
