Second Semi-Final Prediction: Federico Delbonis vs Albert Ramos-Vinolas
Garin and Coria could potentially meet for the 5th time having played their 4th match last week. Coria won the match in straight-sets to level the head-to-head at 2-2. Delbonis and Vinolas have met on 12 occasions so far with the Argentine leading 8-4 in the head-to-head and have not met since the 2021 Clay season.
Chile Open Final: Federico Coria vs Albert Ramos-Vinolas
Coria and Vinolas have not yet squared off on the Tour so far. While both the players are clay-court specialists, it could be a tricky final as neither of them has shown consistency so far with good results in alternate tour appearances. However, Vinolas having won 4 Tour titles so far and the title in Cordoba as well earlier this month, the Spaniard will be the favourite in the final.
Champion: Albert Ramos-Vinolas
