In a 2020 that will remain in the memory for the COVID-19 pandemic, Diego Schwartzman is experiencing the best year of his career professional. Being one of the five players with the most wins on the circuit, the Argentine has, curiously in Paris, his own City of Light.
After the stoppage, Schwartzman did not have the best return to tennis after falling in the first round of the US Open at the hands of Cameron Norrie. However, from then on their performance was on the rise. In European brick dust, the Small managed to reach his first final of a Masters 1000 tournament in Rome, which was a defeat against Serbian Novak Djokovic.
At Roland Garros, the Argentine’s performance was superlative. He reached the quarterfinals without giving up sets to face his friend: Dominic Thiem. In a marathon match the now 9th in the world won in five sets to get for the first time in the top four of a Major and in the Top Ten of the ranking.
With the aim of getting into the End of the year Masters, the positive results did not stop coming for Schwartzman, who in the ATP 250 of Colonia II played his third final of 2020, where he could not do anything against an inspired Alexander Zverev.
But i knew that I would go back to France. This time to the Masters 1000 in Paris. Under roof and on concrete. With another coach (Juan Ignacio Chela stayed in Buenos Aires) he reached the quarterfinals where he fell to Medvedev. But Nadal’s triumph against Carreño Busta got him into the Masters Tournament.
