After getting through the debut with solidity, Diego schwartzman Raises the bar for the second round of San Diego’s ATP 250. He will face Lloyd Harris in the last turn.
The sixth seed of the tournament will collide with the South African, today 32nd in the world ranking, in search of the quarterfinals of the contest that is played on hard surfaces and distributes $ 661,000 in prizes.
The 29-year-old’s performance in these nine months has not been entirely convincing and he seems to need the confidence that consecutive wins give.
He won the title in Buenos Aires (early in the season) and reached the quarter-finals at Roland Garros, but has suffered many disappointing defeats, including against 18-year-old unqualified Daniil Ostapenkov at home a couple of weeks ago for the Cup. Davis.
Schwartzman leads 1-0 (6-4, 6-2 and 6-2 at the 2020 Australian Open) the record but a rival who gained experience and more than one important match on the US tour cannot be trusted.
It is a special appointment, with several figures and live action on Star +, the Argentine will try to give continuity and some stability to a part of the season that has its maximum peak of interest in Indian Wells.
