It can be a great day for Diego Schwartzman in Paris. But since it’s never celebrated ahead of time, you’ll first need to get around the local pitfall in the name of, Richard Gasquet. They will see the faces for the fourth time so that the Argentine can finally twist a 0-3 record.
The game will be the second of the Central Court of the day on Wednesday and can be seen by ESPN and ESPNPlay.com from 8.30 approx. Argentina time.
The funny thing: In three meetings, Schwartzman failed to win a set from Gasquet. Their first duel was in Antwerp (Belgium) in 2016 and the Frenchman’s triumph was 7-6 (4) and 6-1. Two years later, in Monte Carlo the biggest victory would be given: 6-2 and 6-1. In 2020 was the last time they played, in the Cincinnati Masters 1000 and it was 7-6 (6) and 6-3 for the French.
It should be remembered that Schwartzman plays his chance at the Paris Masters 1000 to qualify for the London ATP Finals and he will begin to score points if he defeats Gasquet, since in 2019 he lost in the second round. Despite the unfavorable record, the Argentine has been breaking records in 2020, such as reaching the semifinals of a Grand Slam, beating Rafael Nadal for the first time, reaching a Masters 1000 final and getting into the Top 10 of the ATP.
