The triumph of Diego Schwartzman (10th) against Philipp Kohlschreiber (132th) in the third round of the French Open not only served to sign the pass to the round of 16 of the contest, but also meant some new records in his career.
The Top 10 albiceleste reached 42 victories in Grand Slam tournaments and left behind the mark of Guillermo Cañas (41) and Guillermo Coria (40). Ahead of him, only four Argentine tennis players have a better statistic: Guillermo Vilas, with 139, continues to lead with ample comfort; follow him Juan Martín del Potro, with 97; further back comes David Nalbandian, with 86; and finally, Juan Ignacio Chela, with 46.
Also, with his stay in the round of 16 in Paris reached the 7th presence in this instance in a Major, the same amount as Cañas. Behind were Chela and José Luis Clerc, with 5. Since the beginning of the Open Era and within the Argentines, on the horizon, alone, Vilas also continues to lead this record, with 27.
With respect to Roland Garros, the 10th in the world added his third presence in the fourth round of the Parisian tournament, eight less than Willy, who with 11 is the Argentine who played this instance the most times in the Open Era.
In this way, Schwartzman prepares for a difficult match against Jan-Lennard Struff (42nd), who has just overtaken Carlos Alcaraz (97th) and who maintains a great present.
