Argentines Facundo Bagnis (80th) and Diego Schwartzman (14th) are in the third round of the US Open and are going for more against two qualifying players. The Santa Fe will collide with the surprising Botic van de Zandschulp (117 °) and the Buenos Aires, meanwhile, will face Alex Molcan (138 °). Both games can be seen through ESPN on Star + and the winners will meet in the round of 16.
The duel between Bagnis and van de Zandschulp, debutants in an instance of such magnitude, will start at 15.30 in Argentina and it will be their first confrontation. The southpaw is going through the best season of his career and wants to seal it with a fourth round of the Grand Slam, nothing more and nothing less than at age 31, but it will not be easy against the powerful Dutchman who has five wins in a row.
For its part, Schwartzman and Molcan will take to the field not before 18 (Argentine time) and will also debut their head to head. The 11th seed will attempt to qualify for the second week at Flushing Meadows for the third time in his career And, although in the previous one he is the clear favorite, the Slovak left-hander is going through his dream year – with the final in Belgrade against Novak Djokovic as the maximum point – and he will have nothing to lose.
This section of the bottom of the US Open box suffered the losses of John Isner, Casper Ruud and Brandon Nakashima, among others, but he left two more than interesting crashes for this Friday.
