Diego Schwartzman is not only the highest contender for the title at the Córdoba Open, but he is also one of the most charismatic players on the circuit. On Media Day, the number 9 of the ATP ranking was dispatched with his usual calm to respond to the tournament, Miomir Kecmanovic, the “new” bubbles, his role as leader, the Legion that had him as a prodigal son and much plus.
“Australia would be ideal, but it is all very difficult. There is not a country or a place that is willing to do that without a regrowth or something out of the ordinary happening “, said about the possibility of replicating several tournaments in the same venue as it happened in the last 30 days.
“To be honest, each one is different and it is very difficult for all of us to agree,” he said regarding the talks he has with his colleagues on the circuit. “The idea is that there are no mandatory tournaments. In our case, it would force us to go 4 or 5 months to lock ourselves up in Europe,” he confessed.
Going down to the reality that concerns him this week certified that “It is very important to hold tournaments in South America and it is in sight. In Chile, two Argentines reached the final, in Córdoba there are 9 Argentinian players, that is very good and that is what is generated. “
The responsibility of being the first seed and that he has not been able to celebrate as in his own country as a professional was not removed: “I just push myself.”
And when he was related to David Nalbandian, present as Kecmanovic’s coach, he quickly broke up: “It’s difficult for them to compare me to the King or someone from that litter. They have too many achievements. If by ranking I represent the best in the region if it is comparable but not by achievements “.
