Debut time. Saturday, Diego Schwartzman, No. 9 in the world and fifth seed, makes his presentation at the Miami Masters 1000, in a second-round duel against Yasutaka Uchiyama (110th). And it can be followed live on different ESPN platforms.
The 28-year-old Argentine, due to the various casualties in Miami, is the fifth seed in the traditional competition on hard courts, often considered the fifth largest, the most important after the four Grand Slam. And it is his first clash against the Japanese, who is 11 days older than the Buenos Aires.
Schwartzman plays against Uchiyama from 20:00 in Argentina, live on ESPN Extra and ESPN Play, on the Butch Butchholz court of the now first Masters 1000 of 2021.
This is the sixth participation of the Argentine and Latin American tennis leader in Miami. The Top 10 are 8-4 this season and 3-5 in this tournament, where they have yet to reach the round of 16.
If he advances, Schwartzman will face the winner of the match between Frenchman Adrian Mannarino (36th) and Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic (46th) on the third round.
